We are not prepared to be anybody’s running mate – Josiah Aryeh

A leading member of Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings’ campaign team, Dr Josiah Aryeh has denied speculations that the former First Lady is likely to stand by and become the running mate for Dr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah.

Dr Aryeh emphatically stated on Dwaso Nsem on Adom FM Wednesday that Nana Konadu “is not prepared to be anybody’s running mate.”

According to the former General Secretary of the NDC, the Konadu camp is not afraid of competition for the flagbearership race of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

Dr. Aryeh added that they don’t believe in coalitions because “coalitions muddy the waters of competition and we should not be afraid of competition.”

He welcomed Dr Spio-Garbrah’s decision to contest saying that now that the race is now a three tier they must prepare for a good race.

Commenting on whether they are threatened by the crowd that cheered on President Mills last Thursday when he went to pick his nomination forms, Dr Aryeh said the President could have challenged Nana Konadu’s campaign by substance and not merely by the large number of people who were to support him.

He said the NDC delegates are more discerning now and will vote for the right candidate as the leader of the party.

Dr Aryeh further stated that given a level playing ground Mrs. Rawlings will easily win the elections.
