Speaking on Okay fm’s Ade Akye Abia programme, she reiterated that her respect for all the candidates is unquestionable but In view of the situation currently, John Mahama is the best option to help secure power in 2020.
She also declared support for incumbent General Secretary of the party Johnson Asiedu Nketia who is being challenged by his deputy Koku Anyidoho in the polls scheduled for Saturday.
“We have wonderful people representing the NDC. But I have openly declared my support for John Mahama and Asiedu Nketia even before I became the Women’s Organizer.
Listening to the clarion call of the average Ghanaian, they need the NDC back and we cannot afford to disappoint them. It is the party's duty to restore hope to Ghanaians and that is what we working towards as a party," she added.
