Nana Akosua Dua Sika Asor Brayie II, the queen mother of the Sunyani Traditional Council, has urged National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer John Dramani Mahama to select a Bono Region candidate as his running partner for the 2024 election.
It is the Bono Region’s turn to have a vice president, according to Nana Sika Asor Brayie II, who made this announcement to a group on Sunday, November 19, 2023, in a video that UTV uploaded.
She said that vice presidents of Ghana have always been picked from other regions except the Bono Region.
“Bono is on his (Mahama’s) heart because his wife is from this place, his chairman is also from this here; in fact, all the strong people behind him are from Bono. So, if we support him well, we are going to make progress in our development.
“… we have had vice presidents from different parts of the country… I want to plead with my father (Mahama) that his time around he should choose one (a vice president) from our region, Bono,” she said.
He urged the people of the Bono Region to vote ‘wisely’ and vote for someone who has the Bono Region at heart and would help transform the region.
The queen mother described Mahama, the NDC’s presidential candidate, as a very modest individual. She continued by talking about a meeting she had with the former president after she was crowned queen mother. She said that the majority of those there, including those from the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), had “changed their minds.”
