Dr Kwesi Bekoe Amissah Arthur Is Vice President

Central Bank Governor, Mr Kwesi Amissah Arthur has been confirmed as the Vice to President Mahama.

He beat competition from renowned economist, Dr Kwesi Botchwey to annex the prestigious position.

Sources close to the President have confirmed this to Myjoyonline.com.

In accordance with the constitution, the president after he was sworn into office last Tuesday following the sudden death of President John Atta Mills, has chosen the Governor of the Bank of Ghana the second in command.

With this confirmation, Mr Amissah Arthur will become the natural vice presidential candidate of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the December polls.

Earlier today, academic and political analyst Dr Lloyd Amoah, told Joy FM's Super Morning Show that it would strategically unwise to select Mr Arthur to partner him.

Mr Amoah believes technocrat "will not bring in that fire, that energy that is required" to win the elections for the president.

He said Mr Amissah Arthur had no constituency and would not do much to help the NDC.

But it appears the president and the NDC has other ideas as they have settled on the Central Bank Governor.

Tribalism or regionalism if that is a word plays a huge factor in Ghana politics. He had to go with some Akan man. The top of the ticket is the most important part of the ticket. President Mahama is a communication's man apparently but he's not very demonstrative and lacks a bit of charisma. But they do have momentum with the national sentiment favoring them at the moment. President Mahama just has to avoid missteps and any impressions that he's not up to be the number one guy. If I were him, I would stay low key. Depend on heavy campaign ad rotation but little in public appearances and speeches.

It's a mere formality, the party heads are just going to rubber stamp the team, presumably they've been consulted and given approval.
If you don't know what you are talking about kindly STFU.

Focking backward bastard.

Look at your tribal mentality already.

Who should he go with, a Mongolian or a Yutonkong from Nigeria ?


Did you refer to JJ Rawlings as a tribalist when he appointed Atta Mills as his deputy ?

Seriously, this nkurase ignorant mentality of some of you got to cease kwik.
