Mahama declares intention to lead NDC in 2020
Former President John Dramani Mahama has put to rest speculations he may not stage a comeback to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in 2020.
At a unity walk In Cape Coast on Sunday November 5, 2017, the former President gave an indication he will be contesting for the flagbearer slot of the party when nominations are open in the future.
He however advised his colleague contenders to go about their campaigns devoid of acts that may be inimical to party cohesion indicating that it is with a united front the NDC can go into the 2020 polls stronger in order to defeat the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“I have no problem with any of my colleagues who have expressed interest in leading this Great Party. Let us not attack anyone because whoever is elected to lead us to victory 2020 will need the support of each and everyone.
Spio was my Boss and later became my minister, Joshua was my colleague in parliament and later became the Vice Chancellor of UPSA, Slyvester was the NHIS Boss and later a Presidential Staffer… Is not now that they want to contest that I will have a problem with them. Atubiga is even my favourite Presidential candidate. Let us all work in UNITY for Victory 2020”, he said
