He continued: “I’ve worked with them from the transition team in 2009 to working at the ministry with the minister, at NPA, GNPC. I’m working with the party for us to develop our structures, develop our organisation, make it more fit-for-purpose and ready for the election and that is what my job is, so, any role the party deems fit based on my skillset and my background, I’m prepared to assist in it, including the vice-presidential slot”.
He added: “I think there is a process that goes into it”, noting: “The flag bearer has to work with the Functional Executives of the party in consultation with the elders and come up with the criteria. If they call me and nominate me and I pass the criteria, I definitely will accept it.”
