Excellency Former President John Dramani Mahama speculatively set to unveil his running mate this Saturday in a private ceremony before the National Democratic Congress NDC council of Elders.
This is the same day the New Patriotic Party NPP has set to acclaim their Flag bearer His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo in another private ceremony in Accra.
Many have read meaning into the anticipated program of the opposition. Many pundits claim that the opposition wants to test the popularity of their candidate as compared to the President of the Republic of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo.
Already the President always leads the former President anytime they both organise sessions online to engage their followers. While President Akuffo Addo gets around 40k views, President Mahama will be trailing around 12k.
This clearly testifies the social media popularity of both candidates.
Many people feel President John Dramani Mahamas scheduled big announcement could disrupt the President's popularity online in his acclamation since majority of Ghanaians knows he is the sole candidate but nobody knows the person President Mahama will unveil.
