Former President John Mahama believes he is the only person the New Patriotic Party (NPP) fears as the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) presidential candidate for the 2024 election. He stated this during his campaign tour of the Eastern Region at Somanya in the Yilo Krobo Constituency.
Mr. Mahama emphasized that his political experience and past achievements make him the best candidate to lead the party into the upcoming election, urging the NDC to avoid trying another candidate.
“We don’t want experiment again. Let nobody tell us to try him. If I was sure that they can stand against NPP and win the elections, I wouldn’t have contested but we can’t take the risk because the only person the NPP are scared of in the NDC is John Dramani Mahama,” he said.
According to him, the NPP suffers from sleepless nights at the mere mention of his name. He added that the ruling party’s attempts to persuade the NDC to choose a fresh candidate stem from their fear of his candidature.
Mr. Mahama is seeking reelection as the NDC’s flagbearer ahead of the 2024 presidential election. He faces competition from former Finance Minister, Dr. Kwabena Dufuor, and former Kumasi Mayor, Kojo Bonsu.
The former president’s campaign tour of the Eastern region is part of his efforts to secure a victory in the upcoming NDC primaries, scheduled for May 13th. He will spend three days in the Eastern region canvassing for votes.
