Former President John Mahama has asked members, supporters and leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to allow those who are qualified and want to contest in the party’s primaries ahead of the 2024 elections.
He stated that the NDC, is a democratic party and qualified people who want to show interest in the primaries must not be prevented but allowed to contest to make it competitive.
The former president’s comment comes after the former governor of the Central Bank, Dr Kwabena Duffuor, announced his intention to contest as flagbearer of the party in the upcoming primaries.
Former President Mahama called for a united, peaceful, resolute and focused front which should be a major contributing factor to the 2024 general election because from next year, the NDC would begin branch, constituency, regional and national elections before the flag bearership elections.
He maintained that the NDC is a democratic party and all members, supporters and faithful who have shown interest and were qualified to contest must be allowed to do so and not prevented because they were also part of the umbrella family to exercise their democratic rights.
“The NDC is a democratic party, so all those who show interest and qualify to contest must be allowed to do so however, we must all support and assist whoever emerges in the 2024 elections, and I am certain that God will give us victory,” former President Mahamastressed. –myjoyonline.com
