Mahama tasks former appointees to join fight to reclaim power in 2024

 Former Presi­dent John Maha­ma has tasked his former appointees to come out of retirement and join him in the fight to reclaim power in 2024.

He stated that now that they were all growing up, the cost of medicine alone was not easy and should not sit down and watch their lives’ work flush down the drain when they had children, grandchildren that they needed to sacrifice for.

“The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has performed abysmally and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) from the records have proven to be the best party that ends up cleaning the mess created by the NPP whenever they come to power and leave,” former President Mahama reiterated.

The Former President on February22, 2023, picked forms to contest the presidential primaries of the NDC and his forms were picked on his behalf by Professor Joshua Alabi, a former Greater Accra Regional Minister under the Mahama-led administration.

Interacting with the former appointees in Accra shortly after the forms were picked, former President Mahama charged them to begin the campaign to bring back the NDC to power in 2024 to restore hope and aspirations of Ghanaians by transforming the economy.

“Now that we are all growing up,the cost of medicine alone is not easy and so are we going to sit down and watch our lives’ work flush down the drain when we have children and we have grand­children that we need to sacrifice for?

“So even though you might be in retirement, I am appealing to you to put those walking sticks down and come out of retirement because this is something we must do together, it cannot be the national chairman of the party, it cannot be just the minority lead­ership, it cannot be whoever is the flagbearer who are going to win the 2024 elections for us, all of us would have to put our walking sticks down and come out of retirement and rescue this coun­try,” Former President Mahama postulated.

He contended that it was easy to take a rest and allow the youth to fight for the NDC to reclaim power in 2024 but since they commanded respect and honour in their respective constituencies, they should join forces with the youth to reclaim power so as to sustain their respect and honour.

“It is easy to just take a rest and say I am old now and I will not take part and let the young people do it but you all command respect and honour where you live and in the constituencies from which you come and, so, all of us need to put our shoulders to the wheel and we must do it by example,” former President Mahama stressed.
