Former President John Mahama is keen on making history as the first former President to be re-elected as Head of State.

He is already looking beyond the National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential primary on January 26, 2019 as his party’s prospects “are very bright” saying “I believe the NDC will write a page in the history books of the country with the re-election of a person who has been president before.

“My brothers and sisters, I believe we can make history, and that is the history of the re-election of a person who was president before, it is a rare phenomenon,” he stressed in a meeting with National Democratic Congress (NDC) legislators on Tuesday.

“The party must start strategising for what they will do when they assume the mantle of governance, when I do get elected, it will be for just one term, it must be an administration that hits the ground running, a lot of the strategy and preparations must be done in advance of January 7, 2021, because that will be a government in a hurry.

“The preparation will be needed to stabilise the economy the New Patriotic Party (NPP) leaves behind, in the event of an NDC win, but that’s the history of NDC, we always have to do the heavy lifting and then when we have done the heavy lifting, things are stable, then our opponents come in and then they enjoy a free ride and take us back to where we came from,” former President Mahama bemoaned.

Ninety-six members of the NDC caucus in Parliament purportedly raised GHȻ 600,000 for former President Mahama’s bid to become the NDC flagbearer. –
