Johnson Asiedu Nketia

The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has been warned against accepting any opportunity to serve as John Mahama’s running mate in the 2020 general elections.

A group calling itself the concerned youth of Brong Ahafo region who issued the warning has urged Mr Nketia to rather concentrate on his job as the chief scribe of the party.
