The Northern Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party Lawyer Sulley Sambian has describes the decision of John Dramani Mahama to contest the NDC Party’s presidential primaries as quite refreshing and good omen for the NPP electoral victory come 2020 .
The former President John Dramani Mahama lasted Thursday after a meeting with the founder of the Party, former President Jerry John Rawlings declared his intention to run for the party’s flagbearership for the 2020 elections.
Mr. Mahama subsequently, presented his letter of intent at the NDC headquarters at Adabraka in Accra Thursday amid a rousing support from some party faithful.
Northern Regional scribe of the NPP in an interview said, “the decision of Mr. Mahama is quite refreshing. Our prayers are with him. We just hope he scales over their primaries to represent the NDC in the December 2020 polls. I can assure you he will be a walk over. Ghanaians certainly do not have short memories”.
According to him, Ghanaians certainly have not forgotten, and time has not covered all traces of the nefarious past of the previous administration of which Mr. Mahama presided over.
“The culture of impunity and corruption that overwhelmed this nation when Mr. Mahama was in charge of this country. Certainly we would exhume the long buried dossiers of corruption that he presided over, and the careless manner in which affairs of government was handled. We are patiently waiting for the outcome of their primaries, and as I said we in the NPP wish him well”. He said
Eight men have already tendered in their letters to contest the flagbearership race of the opposition National Democratic Congress. December 7, 2018 has been set aside by the party to choose the 2020 flagbearer.
