I’m not interested in NDC running mate slot – Betty Mould-Iddrisu

Betty Mould-Iddrisu, a former Minister of Education, has stated that she is not interested in becoming the flag bearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Mahama’s running mate going into the 2020 elections.

She insisted that she is not harbouring any presidential ambitions, she is focused on helping the nation’s largest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to return to power in January 2021, saying, “I am not harbouring any presidential ambition but focusing on helping my party to return to power in 2021, no, I don’t want to be vice president, I want to help my party win power.”

Rumours are rife that her sibling Alex Mould is a possible choice to partner former President Mahama for the next general polls, she described her brother as “an intelligent person” who is fit for the position, but noted it is the presidential candidate’s prerogative to decide on his running mate.

However, Mr Mould, a former Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation, has dismissed claims that he has rejected an offer to be the running mate of the former president since no offer has been made to him by Mr Mahama to pair him ahead of the 2020 elections.

“I wish to state for the record that I have not been approached by the flag bearer of the NDC for the 2020 presidential election to play any such role, I cannot have turned down an offer that has not been made to me,” he stressed.
