Prof Kwesi Botchwey appointed as running mate to Mahama for 2020

Professor Kwesi Botchwey, Ghana's longest-serving Finance Minister is tipped to become the running mate to former President John Dramani Mahama for Election 2020, Graphic Online has gathered.

It has been gathered that Prof Botchwey's name came up for the appointment at a meeting today - August 19, 2019 - and would be announced later.

However, there are other competing interests.

There are some other people lobbying for the position and they have all thrown their curriculum vitae (CV) for consideration.

Key names such as Dr Kwabena Duffuor, Kwesi Ahwoi, Prof John Gatsi, Nii Okoi Dsane, Alex Mould are some of the names that have prominently come out for the running mate position.

But sources close to Mr Mahama says he was relaxed about who will become his running mate since he has gone through the process of selecting a running mate before in 2012 and 2015.
