A member of the NDC Young Professionals and a scientific researcher, Daniel K Jerry Sorokpo has advised the Flagbearer of the NDC, John Dramani Mahama,the party founder, Flt Jerry John Rawlings and the Council of Elders to ignore the list of names making the rounds in news publications and on social media suggested to be possible Vice Presidential candidates for the 2020 election.

He said, instead of acting on the social media list, the executives of the NDC should rather pick a running mate who will be appealing to the electorate and has the potential of helping the party in 2020 and beyond.

He explains that none of the names in circulation is capable of making the NDC regain power in the general elections in 2020 as “NDC as a party in opposition now need a potential running mate to win the task ahead”.

He adds that some of those people rather qualify to occupy some key positions when party win but not to occupy NDC running mate position.

Daniel K Jerry Sorokpo further advised the party leaders against repeating mistakes they made in the past in the selection of running mate of NDC.

He emphasizes that the inability of the then NDC leadership to select the right mate for the flagbearer led to the party’s defeat in the year 2000 and 2004 general election and also in the 2016 general election.

The Scientific Researcher also observed that strategic selection of John Mahama in 2008 as a running mate, accounted to the victory of the NDC, therefore, the need to carefully consider the future potentiality when it comes to the choice of a running mate.

He urged the party to consider choosing someone from the Volta Region which is believed to be the World bank of the NDC “because that is the only way NDC may not be disappointed in 2020 general election”.

“There is a lot of young and experienced politicians from Volta Region who occupied various positions such as banking and finance, NDC national executive and Ministerial position, and also having Parliamentary experience who knows much about how to manage the economy and stabilize the Ghana Cedi into single digit inflation and such personality deserves to be the running mate,” he stressed.

Daniel K Jerry Sorokpo is the scientific researcher who earlier conducted research on aspirants who deserved to occupy the NDC National Executives Position in the recent NDC polls is asking the grassroots to remain calm and work hard to rejuvenate the grassroots base of the party though, the chances of winning 2020 general election is boldly clear.

He says he and his team are working tirelessly to formulate some policies to NDC bigwigs to fix into NDC 2020 manifesto and campaign strategies with the hope of wooing the electorate and rescuing Ghanaians from hardship after victory in the 2020 general election.

Mr. Sorokpo also asked party sympathizers and voters to remain focus and vote massively for NDC in the 2020 general election without being misled by the ruling New Patriotic Party “since the hardships, cost of living and above all Ghana Cedi depreciation and bad governance embroidered with massive corruption happening every day under this NPP administration”.
