It’s “fake news” – Mahama on “false” Prof Botchwey running mate story

Former President John Mahama has denied selecting Prof Kwesi Botchwey as his running mate for the 2020 presidential election on the ticket of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

“Fake news”, Mr Mahama wrote on Facebook on Monday evening, adding: “The Daily Graphic report of the selection of a running mate is false”.

Prof Botchwey is Ghana’s longest-served Finance Minister and a member of the NDC.

He led the process of assessment of the party’s 2016 defeat.

According to Graphic.com.gh, “Prof Botchwey’s name came up for the appointment at a meeting today, 19 August 2019 and would be announced later”.

 
However, Mr Mahama as well as several sources within the party have denied any such event.
