Members of the National Democratic Congress in the United Kingdom and Ireland on Thursday sent a congratulatory message to Mr John Dramani Mahama on his selection by Professor John Atta-Mills as his running mate for the December 2008 General Elections. The message copied to the media said, “we believe that Prof. Mills could not have chosen a better person than Honourable Mahama, though, the names that came up both publicly and behind the scenes are all accomplished and capable people fit for the slot.” It said Mr Mahama having successfully won and retained a parliamentary seat for three consecutive times puts him in a very unique position above the others and that they believed his youthfulness would also bring new vigour to the presidential race. The statement signed by Mr Emmanuel R. A. Osae, Public Relations Officer, NDC – United Kingdom & Ireland said the administration of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) “has created a two-nation Ghana and we therefore need a person who is a conciliator, calm and determined to reunite the nation.” “This is what we find in John Mahama and believe such a man will complement very well “Asomdwehene” Prof. John Evans Atta-Mills. The statement called on all members of the NDC to rally behind the duo and that the “two are a winning team for a better and a one nation Ghana.” It urged all Ghanaians to vote for the Professor Atta-Mills and John Mahama ticket.
