The former Ghanaian President, John Dramani Mahama, has said he is sure of winning the presidential primaries of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) with a huge margin.
Mahama, who is the favourite to lead the party in the 2024 general elections, spoke to the press after voting in his home constituency of Bole Bamboi today.
He said that he was not worried by the withdrawal of Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, a former Finance Minister, from the race at the eleventh hour. He said he had anticipated a landslide victory regardless.
“It will be a massive win. It will be a landslide. Many delegates don’t even know that he has quit, so we are still looking forward to our win,” he said.
Mahama is facing a lone challenger, Kojo Bonsu, a former mayor of Kumasi, who also voted at the Jubilee Park, Subin Constituency, in the Ashanti Region.
Bonsu said he was hopeful about his chances and called on the party members to vote prudently and unite for the 2024 general elections.
“I want to tell everyone in the party that 2024 is our main objective, so we should all come together, vote prudently and make sure that this party has the strength to fight in the 2024 elections very well. My chances are very positive,” he said.
He also remarked on Duffuor’s withdrawal, saying that it was a matter for the party. “We are one big family, what has happened is our family matter.”
