The former chief of staff of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Julius Debrah, has categorically said that he has no interest in serving as John Mahama’s running partner in the upcoming 2024 election.
Mr. Debrah has taken intentional action to disassociate himself from this idea, claiming that he has never expressed such an objective in any venue.
In a formal statement, he clarified, “I want to disassociate myself from the statements circulating in the media attributed to certain groups and individuals. While I recognize the genuine trust and confidence these parties may have in my abilities, I want to emphasize that I have not made any such commitment anywhere.”
Mr. Debrah also voiced his confidence in Mr. Mahama’s ability to choose his running companion when the time is right.
Therefore, he has pleaded with various interest groups and people to abstain from forcing the candidate into making a snap decision about his choice of running partner.
Drawing from his close collaboration with former President Mahama, Mr. Debrah emphasized, “Having closely worked with [former] President Mahama and continuing to share a strong bond, I can attest to his astute judgment in making timely decisions. He is not swayed by lobbying for such a position.”
In recent weeks, speculation around the former Muhammad administration appointee’s probable nomination as a running mate has gathered steam as a number of interest organizations and people have made public mention of his name in media debates.
