The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has stated that it is not alarmed by former president John Dramani Mahama’s plan to compete for office in the general elections of 2024.
Richard Ahiagbah, the NPP’s director of communications, stated that the party is unconcerned about a guy who had no prior experience as president.
After failing to head the NDC in the elections of 2016 and 2020, Mr. Mahama announced on February 21 that he would do so once more in the elections of 2024.
On Wednesday, February 22, a group of his supporters gathered up candidacy papers on his behalf.
After the ballots were chosen on Mr. Mahama’s behalf, Mr. Ahiagbah told media in Accra that the NPP would win the 2024 elections.
When asked if the NPP was concerned about Mr. Mahama’s plan to run in the elections of 2024, Mr. Ahiagbah responded that the NPP had already defeated Mr. Mahama twice, so doing so wouldn’t be difficult or unexpected.
According to Mr. Ahiagbah, the NPP is not concerned about John Mahama, whom they are certain will be defeated, and is instead only concerned about how to strengthen Ghana’s economy.
“We are interested in how we can build our economy, and we want to know whether he has the solution because we saw him vanquish the gains that he got, and we saw him collapse our economy and banking sector. He doesn’t have what it takes to improve Ghana because if he had what it took to do that, he wouldn’t have vanquished our economic gains and taken us to the IMF.”
On behalf of former President John Mahama, former campaign manager Joshua Alabi and a few Regional Chairmen of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have selected presidential candidacy papers.
Today, Wednesday, February 22, 2023, Prof. Alabi gathered up the nomination papers for the former president John Mahama from the offices of the major opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
As a result, Mr. Mahama will run for re-election to continue serving as the party’s flagbearer leading up to the 2024 Presidency elections.
For the general elections in 2024, the NDC has opened applications for both its presidential and parliamentary candidates.
