I’ve no intention of becoming vice-prez -Joe Ghartey
Joe Ghartey, former Attorney General and Minister of Justice, has stated that he has no desire to become vice-president. He was one of the 10 candidates who applied last year to run for the governing New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) flagbearer position.
The NPP’s presidential candidate for the 2024 elections, Mahamudu Bawumia, has yet to announce his running mate after being given an extension in December. Ghartey, speaking on a radio show, expressed that while he is not interested in the vice-presidential role, he is open to discussing any other position offered to him by Dr. Bawumia.
There is a good reason why you should support the African Editors. Not everyone can afford to pay for news right now. That is why we keep our journalism open for everyone to read, including in Ghana. If this is you, please continue to read for free. But if you are able to, then there are three good reasons to support us today.
1. Our quality, journalism is a scrutinising force at a time when the rich and powerful are getting away with more and more.
2. We are independent and have no billionaire owner pulling the strings, so your money directly powers our reporting.
3. It doesn’t cost much, and takes less time than it took to read this message.
Help power the African Editors' journalism for the years to come, whether with a small sum or a larger one.
