Belinda Bulley the Campaign Manager of the newly-outdoored running mate of Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has indicated that the party has absolute confidence in Brigitte Dzogbenuku to deliver the numbers the party needs to garner the votes its expecting in 2016 election.
She insisted that the running mate has what it takes to deal with the hard political knocks that confront several women who step up to hold political positions in the country.
Brigitte Dzogbenuku a former beauty queen and a member of Occupy Ghana Movement was yesterday officially inducted as the running mate to Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom.
Speaking on Ultimate FM’s Fact File hosted by Julius Caesar Anadem, the Second Vice Chair of the PPP explained that Madam Bridgette is well prepared for the task ahead.
According to her, PPP would not be the first political party to set the precedence where unknown faces are selected as running mates or drawn into politics.
‘We do know that Ghana’s politics has been quite patriarchal environment for sometime now, we also know that it has many women venturing into politics, so you get prepared, she is prepared, and we have no doubt that she is going to do it very well, nobody knew the vice presidential candidate of New Patriotic Party (NPP) Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, the Vice president. PPP would is not the one setting the precedence where unknown faces in the political circles are brought on board,’ she explained.
The party has indicated it will be taking its newly outdoored running mate on a national tour from next week.
