Reports circulating in the local media had suggested Mahama was considering picking Dr. Zanetor Rawlings, the legislator for Korle Klottey constituency and daughter of former president Jerry John Rawlings, as his running-mate.

However, the statement said all speculations suggesting Mahama has selected his running mate are false and urged the public to disregard such reports.

“Mr. Mahama is presently focused on both his NDC flagbearer campaign and his official duties, therefore, Ghanaians should disregard all such conjectures,” it read.

“We wish to state that the reports are false,” the statement added.

The ex-president will, however, face competition from 10 other candidates, including Alban Bagbin, Goosie Tanoh, Ekow Spio Garbrah and Kojo Bonsu.
