My running mate reports ‘fake news’ – Mahama


Former President John Mahama has dismissed reports suggesting he has settled on a running mate for the December polls.

Reports on social media Friday claimed the NDC flagbearer had settled on MP Eric Opoku as running mate.

Reacting to the claims, Mr. Mahama described them as fake news and must be ignored.

He however urged Ghanaians to continue to comply with measures being spearheaded by the Health Ministry in order to minimize the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

“Yet another fake news. Reports that I have settled on and announced a running mate for the 2020 elections are false.

“Let’s continue to take precaution and help #stopthespread of COVID-19. Wash your hands as frequently as you can, especially after touching a commonly used surface or object. And please wash your hands with soap and under running water,” Mahama wrote on Facebook.
