The vice-presidential nominee of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, has taken her campaign tour to the Ashanti Region.

Former President John Mahama’s running mate will be in the governing New Patriotic Party’s stronghold for the next six days.

Her entry follows the exit of Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, who has also been campaigning in that part of Ghana.

A statement from Prof Opoku-Agyemang’s campaign team said: “The tour will give her an opportunity to engage interactively and deliberate on issues of national concern with traditional authorities, professionals, youth and women groups, religious leaders, civil society organisations and citizens of the region from all walks of life”.

“While visiting 20 constituencies across the region, she will present concrete solutions to their challenges as articulated in the NDC’s People’s Manifesto”.

Those touring with Prof Opoku-Agyemang include Mr Alex Segbefia – former Health Minister and Deputy Campaign Manager for Election 2020, Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa – former Deputy Education Minister, Mrs Maame Efua Houadjeto – Deputy Women’s Organiser, Ms Emelia Arthur – a former Deputy Western Regional Minister, Abu Kansangabata – a former Deputy Upper West Regional Minister, Musah Abdulai – former MCE for Bawku and Mrs Mawuena Trebarh, a former CEO of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre and now Spokesperson and Head of Communications for the running mate.
