Former President John Dramani Mahama has launched his campaign for the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) flagbearer in the 2024 general elections. The campaign, with the theme “Building the Ghana we want together,” was launched at the Cedi Auditorium at the University of Health and Allied Sciences in Ho, in the Volta Region. Other contenders for the NDC flagbearer include Dr. Kwabena Duffour, Kojo Bonsu, and Ernest Kobeah. The NDC is expected to conduct its presidential primaries on May 13, 2023. Mahama’s former campaign manager, Joshua Alabi, and some Regional Chairmen of the National Democratic Congress picked up presidential nomination forms on his behalf.
Observers are calling for Mahama to go unopposed in the NDC’s upcoming presidential election to save the party time and resources. However, the NPP is not perturbed about Mahama’s decision to run for president, stating that they have defeated him twice and he has no track record to show when he was president.
