Dr. Zenator Rawlings could find a new enemy in her father, former President Rawlings, if she should consider a proposal from Mr. Mahama to be his running mate in 2020, Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, has warned.
Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, who is the New Patriotic Party’s Ashanti Regional Chairman noted that though the camp of former President Mahama have issued a release to dispel the notion that they are considering Dr. Zenator Rawlings for the position of a running mate, he considers it as a desperate move by the former president to make peace with the NDC’s founder before the 2020 elections.
“Mahama can’t fool anyone with the release he came out with dispelling the notion that he would be picking Zenator as his running mate. It was a calculated move to make former President Rawlings feel important again in the NDC but I know Rawlings wouldn’t fall for this prank.”
He continued by warning the daughter of former President Rawlings that “don’t get closer to Mahama, he would pick you, corrupt you, destroy your young political career and destroy the love your father has for you. Do not accept anything from him”.
It would be recalled that speculations went rife that former President Mahama was considering picking Dr. Zenator Rawlings as his running mate ahead of the 2020 elections.
However, a statement from former President John Dramani Mahama has asked Ghanaians to disregard any conjectures about his running mate for the 2020 elections.
“Mr Mahama is presently focused on both his NDC flagbearer campaign and his official duties,” a statement from his campaign team said on Wednesday.
