“Your Excellency, please, I know very soon you will select your running mate. If you have selected one already, I haven’t heard… There are many people in most of the regions, but if you are not careful and you focus only on some regions, they will vote for you, but the rest of us will vote against you,” the traditional ruler said.

By indication, the Dormaahene meant the likes of Martin Adjei Korsah, Ignatius Baffour Awuah, Kwaku Agyemang Manu, and Mahama Afful, who hail from the regions and are members of the NPP should be considered.

However, even as the NPP flagbearer is yet to announce his running mate choice, there’s heavy speculation according to Asaaseradio that three party men (not from the Bono region) are the only contenders.
