FLASHBACK: President John Dramani Mahama addressing NDC supporters at the Kumasi congress
The Mahama-Amissah-Arthur ticket is the best for Ghana to move into a “full middle income country," President John Dramani Mahama has said.
Speaking at an event to outdoor Vice-President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, his running mate for the December 2012 elections, President Mahama described him as the chosen one who is “going to be a very critical anchor” for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government.
“I know he’s going to be the kind of support to move us from lower middle income country to a full middle income country,” President Mahama told the packed National Theatre on Tuesday.
Hundreds of NDC supporters thronged the venue to show their love and support to the newly-confirmed running mate.
The National Executive Committee of the party overwhelmingly confirmed Mr.
Amissah-Arthur on Tuesday to partner President Mahama for the elections.
He became vice-president following the death of late President John Evans Atta Mills on July 24, 2012.
President Mahama said Mr.
Amissah-Arthur’s “insight and contributions on the Economic Management Team are invaluable.”
“Today is his day.
Everything is on track for a gargantuan victory come December 2012.
Our party is rejuvenated.
Late President Mills paid the ultimate prize and sacrificed to rejuvenate our party,” he said.
