The former President John Dramani Mahama has disclosed his intention to contest the 2020 general elections.
Mr Mahama who has been mum about rumours of his interest in a Facebook post said his interest is borne out of the numerous calls by his teeming supporters and sympathizers.
“I want to congratulate the rank & file and executives of our party, the NDC, at all levels for the commitment and work rate 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,’ Mr Mahama said.
Mr Mahama woefully lost the 2016 general elections to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
He is likely to wrestle for the presidential candidate position for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) with some party gurus such as the former Minister for Trade and Industry Dr. Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, Alban Bagbin, Sylvester Mensah and former Vice Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies Accra (UPSA), Prof. Joshua Alabi who have openly expressed interests to contest when the party opens nomination.
