John Dramani Mahama, a former president of Ghana, claims that he chose to submit his nomination to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) into the 2024 elections because he stands out among his rivals as the best candidate to defeat whoever the New Patriotic Party will put forth in that year’s elections.

The former president claims that the NPP is utterly terrified by even the mention of his name.
Speaking to party members in Somanya as part of a three-day tour of the Eastern Region, Mr. Mahama said that other candidates have no chance of defeating the NPP in the 2024 elections, which is why he decided to return. He also said that now is not the time to take a chance with a new person.
We cannot take the chance, thus I wouldn’t have run if I thought my candidates for the NDC presidential position could defeat the NPP in the general elections in 2024. I, John Dramani Mahama, am the only member of the NDC who the NPP fears.
“When they [NPP] hear my name, they can’t fall asleep. They have been asking for a new person because of this. Are you the ones to advise us on what to do? I think God has already given us the power, so it’s none of your concern,” he replied.
