“Choosing Running Mate Is Not Like Choosing A Bride” – Atubiga

A former member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has chastised the two leading candidates for the upcoming 2024 general election for their delay in choosing their running mate.

Stephen Atubiga, an avid critic of John Mahama in a post on Sunday lamented the unnecessary delay on the part of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and John Dramani Mahama, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

According to the founder and leader of the newly-formed National Liberation Congress (NLC), choosing a running mate should not take that long and wondered if it amounted to choosing a bride.

The former NDC Communicator says, choosing a vice presidential candidate should be treated as serious business as it is to win power.

“JDM and Bawumia should know choosing a running mate is not like choosing a Bride (Amariya)to show your family to be delaying. It’s for power and serious business,” he wrote.

Ghanaians are earnestly waiting to know the vice presidential candidates for both Dr. Bawumia and John Mahama, the two leading candidates in the upcoming election.

The selection and announcement of the vice presidential candidates will kickstart the intensive campaign towards the 2024 crucial elections.

The Presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress was elected 7 months ago and has failed to name his running mate. While some members of the NDC wants a repeated ticket from the 2020 elections, sources within the party suggest that some leading members want a change.

On the other hand, the selection of the vice presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was delayed  after the flagbearer asked for some more time from the party executives.

The 2024 election is scheduled to take place on December 7, 2024. It is tipped to be a crucial election for both parties. While the NDC is poised to snatch victory from the NPP, the NPP has vowed to break the eight-year cycle.
