According to US-based vlogger Kevin Taylor, Prof. Rita Akosua Dickson, Vice Chancellor of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), is set to become Dr. Bawumia’s running mate.

On his X timeline, the US-Ghanaian journalist stated that, barring any last-minute alterations, the academic may be the running partner.

“Barring any last minute changes Rita Akosua Dickson, Vice Chancellor of KNUST is expected to be named running mate of Dr Bawumia,” he said.

However, reports suggest that this information is unverified, as there has been no formal or informal contact inside the party about a definitive nominee.

It is worth noting that Prof. Akosua Dickson’s term is set to expire next month, with no word on when the renewal process will begin.

The academic is from the Ashanti Region and attended St. Monica’s Secondary School in Asante Mampong. She also belongs to the Amakom branch of a prominent church.
