The former president has expressed satisfaction on the party’s running mate choice even though he had some other people in mind.

“If this was the case then there was no reason to stand against it even though I had a few others in mind,” Mr. Rawlings said when John Mahama and leading party executives called on him on Thursday to introduce the Vice-Presidential Candidate.

Mr. Rawlings further encouraged Professor Opoku-Agyemang to remain focused on her principles of integrity.
