Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) has dismissed reports of naming his running mate.

Social media has been awashed with a circular for the past 24hrs indicating that the former leader of the country has chosen his running mate.

“Just in…

Hon. Eric Opoku, Asunafo South MP, Ranking member of the Agric and Cocoa affairs committee of Parliament becomes the running mate of John Dramani Mahama,” the brief statement said.

But Mr John Dramani Mahama has responded to this in a Facebook post denying and describing it as yet another fake news.

He rather urged Ghanaians to continue to comply with measures being spearheaded by the Health Ministry in order to minimize the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

“Yet another fake news. Reports that I have settled on and announced a running mate for the 2020 elections are false.

“Let’s continue to take precaution and help #stopthespread of COVID-19. Wash your hands as frequently as you can, especially after touching a commonly used surface or object. And please wash your hands with soap and under running water,” Mahama wrote on Facebook.
