A pressure group known as Volta Youth for Development says President John Mahama should replace Vice President Amissah-Arthur with the Speaker of Parliament, Doe Adjaho, as his running mate ahead of the 2016 elections.
Replace 'incompetent' Amissah-Arthur with Doe Adjaho - NDC Volta youth
The group said President Mahama should "console" the region with a running mate position
According to the youth, "Ghanaians have seen Amissah Arthur to be very 'incompetent' as the Vice President to President Mahama and so, our believe which has sprung out of a research is that, his pair again with President Mahama as his running mate can only reduce the votes of NDC drastically."

The group in statement said the continuous strong support of NDC by Voltarians despite the neglect in developmental projects, the youth deemed it necessary for Mahama to "console" the region with a running mate position.
Their call follows an order from the National Democratic Congress’ National Executives for the party’s flagbearer Mahama to initiate processes that will lead to the naming of his running mate for the general polls.
Below is the full statement:
MAKE DOE ADJAHO THE RUNNING MATE- VOLTA YOUTH FOR DEVELOPMENT
We the members of Volta Youth For Development demand from President Mahama to select the Speaker of Parliament, Hon. Doe Adjaho as his running mate to secure victory for the party in the 2016 elections.
The fact is, Ghanaians have seen Amissah Arthur to be very incompetent as the Vice President to President Mahama and so, our believe which has sprung out of a research is that, his pair again with President Mahama as his running mate can only reduce the votes of NDC drastically.
Secondly, with the continuous strong support of NDC by Voltarians despite our continuous neglect by the NDC when it comes to development and ministerial position assignments, we as a result deem it fit for the President and all the national executives of the NDC party to at least "console our soul" with this running mate position.

Even though Hon. Doe Adjaho has no hand in our demand, we have chosen to nominate him to be considered for this position because we see him as the best out of all the Voltarians in NDC, which has been proven through a research of ours with respective to a majority of Voltarians in and out of the Volta region.
We hope our request will be given a consideration by the leadership of NDC.
Thank you and may God be praised always
