Politics of Thursday, 10 January 2019
Former President John Dramani Mahama says the 2020 elections will be a make-or-break one for the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to him, there have been numerous calls from Ghanaians across the nation for the NDC to return to save them from the hardship under the current government.
He said that makes it imperative for the party to put its house in order for victory next year.
The former president charged delegates, therefore, not to try any flagbearer aspirant but to go in for an experienced person come January 26, 2019, when the party goes to the polls.
He was addressing delegates in the Shama Constituency on Wednesday when he made this known.
The immediate past president said Ghanaians listened to the cry of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to try him in 2016 and the consequences have been devastating for all.
Addressing the NDC supporters in Fante, Mr. Mahama stated that there cannot be any other result after the 2020 elections than an NDC win.
He admitted that results of the 2016 election appear to be God-sent for Ghanaians to see the incompetence of the Nana Akufo-Addo-led government.
He said so far nothing significant has been done by the government.
Mr. Mahama promised to be a unifier after the NDC presidential primary and said he will give responsibilities in his campaign to all the losers should he win.
For him, the opponents of the NDC will be the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and not NDC.
“I will give them responsibilities in the campaign so that they can participate.”
