Mahama lets the cat out of the bag, says he is coming back in 2020
Former President John Dramani Mahama has given the strongest indication yet that he’s going to contest the Presidency in the 2020 general polls.
According to him, he has reflected on the numerous calls by the party's teeming supporters and sympathizers to declare his intention to contest in 2020; adding "I have listened to your calls"
Mahama who has been silent on his intention to contest wrote on his facebook page: “I want to congratulate the rank & file and executives of our party, the NDC, at all levels for the commitment and work we have put into our reorganization efforts.
The zeal and determination of the average sympathizer of our great party is greater and miles ahead of what it was after the December 2016 Elections. We need to keep up with the momentum generated and follow the published timelines.
To you the teeming supporters and sympathizers calling and requesting me to declare my intentions for the future, I wish to assure you today, that as a servant-leader, I have listened to your calls and reflected. I will not disappoint you even as we await the publication of the party’s guidelines for selecting a new leader”
