The former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama, has vowed to lead the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to a decisive victory in the 2024 general election.
Mahama secured 98.8% of the votes in the NDC’s presidential primaries over the weekend, making him the official flagbearer of the country’s biggest opposition party.
In his formal acceptance speech on Monday, May 15, Mahama told President Akufo-Addo to prepare his handing over notes, as he was confident that the NDC will oust the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) from power next year.
“I appreciate your trust and your firm belief that I am the best person with the vision and experience to lead our party, the NDC to victory in 2024.
“We have to win the election to enable us to build the Ghana we want together. I promise to lead you to a triumphant victory come December 2024,” Mahama said.
He also promised that when the NDC returns to power, his administration will revive the country’s economy and restore hope to the people.
