Former Member of the Council of State, Ama Benyiwa-Doe says the brouhaha surrounding who to pair NDC’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama in the 2020 election shouldn’t be a headache to the party.

According to her, the former President in his own time will present the rightful person who can partner him to the leadership of the party ahead of election 2020.

"It is the work of John Mahama to select the person," she told McJerry Osei Agyeman in an interview.

“John Mahama in his own wisdom will choose a better person as his running mate," she said in an interview with Neat FM's morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.

John Mahama is yet to select a running mate to contest the 2020 presidency – but before that, reported that Prof Kwesi Botchwey has been selected to pair him.

But the former President has denied selecting Prof Kwesi Botchwey as his running mate on the ticket of the main opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC).
