Former president John Mahama has denied endorsing some NDC candidates ahead of the party’s national delegates Congress.
A statement signed by his aide, Joyce Bawa Mogtari, stated that the 2020 candidate of the NDC ” wishes to once again caution, in the strongest terms, aspirants and their campaigners who deliberately continue to associate his name with their campaign.”
“Mr. Mahama has noted the attempt by some candidates to push a narrative, despite his previous cautions, that he supports their candidature,” the statement clarified.
Mogtari said as has been publicly stated by Mr. Mahama, “he has no preference and has not endorsed any candidate in the ongoing NDC national executive elections, which climaxes on Saturday at the 10th National Delegates Congress.”
“Of paramount interest to President Mahama is Victory for the NDC in 2024 to work with expectant and suffering Ghanaians to “Build the Ghana We Want.” He, like other supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), will work with whoever the delegates choose and elect.”
Mr Mahama’s office also condemned a publication in a tabloid newspaper that the family of the former President is in support of one of the aspirants
for National Chairman of the NDC.
“The said claim and the publication are false, and the rank and file of the party are encouraged to disregard them,” Mahama’s office stated.
The NDC goes to the polls on Saturday, December 17,2022, to elect national executives to lead the party into election 2024.
