The National Executive Committee of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) has unanimously confirmed vice-president Kwesi Amissah-Arthur as the running mate of President John Dramani Mahama.

The official confirmation was made on Tuesday after a meeting at the NDC headquarters in Accra.

The former Governor of the Bank of Ghana will be outdoored at an event at the National Theatre in Accra later today.

According to Bede Zidine, an NDC NEC Member,? the president submitted a single nominee to the Council of Elders on Monday and [they] endorsed the nominee. He proceeded to meet NEC on Tuesday, where he submitted the name of his running mate in the person of the sitting vice president, Kwesi Amissah-Arthur. When he submitted the name various organs of the party all spoke to the issue and endorsed the President?s nomination.

On his part, the chairman of the NDC, Dr. Kwabena Adjei said the nominee was overwhelmingly accepted because they have ?positioned themselves for it.?

?We understand ourselves and we position our minds in positive directions every time, and for that matter we have a way of policing the positivity of minds, we put our minds positively to an event or instance and we achieve it. There was consultation, the President said this is the guy I want and then we all said that he is a good guy.?
