Daniel Yaw Domelevo, the former Auditor General, has denied suggestions that he may be selected to be the National Democratic Party’s (NDP) running mate in the next general elections.
He made this comment in response to assertions made by prominent Ghanaian media figure Paul Adom-Otchere that there is immense pressure on President John Dramani Mahama to abdicate Professor Jane Naana Opuku-Agyemang, his running mate for 2020, and consider Daniel Yaw Domelevo for the general elections that will take place in 2024.
“Can you imagine my friend Domelevo as the running mate to President Mahama? That is the new agenda being pushed.’’
“There is immense pressure on President John Mahama, which is why Professor Kwamena Ahwoi was compelled to state last week that John Mahama should retain Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemand,’’ Adom Otchere alleged.
But speaking in an interview on TV XYZ, which was monitored by 1Family Radio, Domelevo said he is not interested in politics and that his function is primarily in the field of transparency and rectification.
“I would like to make it clear that on the political one, where somebody is talking about running mate, I am not a political animal,’’ he said.
“I don’t think any party that makes the mistake of choosing me as a running mate will win the election, because on the platform where we are campaigning, I will be correcting them, and we are not going to be successful,’’ he added.
