According to the Asogli State, the "Change Makers Forum" is the most recent organization to contact Togbe Afede about being President Mahama's running partner. According to the Council, Togbe Afede stated that "as a patriotic citizen, he would not reject any opportunity to serve the country, but the choice of a running mate is the prerogative of the flag bearer, who already knows him very well." According to the statement, Togbe Afede felt it a tremendous honor that a group of well-intentioned professionals approached him to express their faith in him, and hence their wish for him to be Ghana's next vice president.

The Asogli State Council has denied accusations that Togbe Afede XIV, the Agbogbomefia of Asogli, has directed persons to advocate for his nomination as the running mate of National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate John Mahama.

The Asogli State Council reiterated on Tuesday that, while Togbe Afede XIV would not reject any opportunity to serve Ghana, he has not directed any individual or group to promote his candidacy as running partner.

The comment comes in response to recent allegations that Togbe Afede might be John Mahama’s running partner in the 2024 presidential race.

According to the Asogli State, the “Change Makers Forum” is the most recent organization to contact Togbe Afede about being President Mahama’s running partner.

According to the Council, Togbe Afede stated that “as a patriotic citizen, he would not reject any opportunity to serve the country, but the choice of a running mate is the prerogative of the flag bearer, who already knows him very well.”

According to the statement, Togbe Afede felt it a tremendous honour that a group of well-intentioned professionals approached him to express their faith in him, and hence their wish for him to be Ghana’s next vice president.

“But Togbe has not mandated anybody or group to “lobby” for his choice as running mate,” it continued.

The Asogli State Council apologised to the chiefs, kingmakers, Asogli residents, and everyone else for any shock and shame they may have experienced.

“The office of the Agbogbomefia has an open-door policy and welcomes communication, comments, and queries from all people and stakeholders. We invite individuals or groups to contact us directly with any issues, problems, or ideas that require consideration,” it stated.

He expressed his hope for the outgoing Majority Leader to have lasted till the finish, calling him tremendously industrious.
