On February 21, 2023, he made the declaration during a meeting with the minority caucus at his office in Cantonment.
John Mahama has received the entire support of all NDC members of Parliament to lead the party to victory in 2024.
Professor Joshua Alabi, the former NDC campaign manager for the 2020 general elections, the former chief of staff Julius Debrah, and the former minister of information Kofi Totobi Quakyi were all present at the meeting.
Mahama is anticipated to address Ghanaians in public in the upcoming days.
Assuring the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of their unwavering support for the 2024 elections, around four unions—the Motor Riders Union, True Drivers Union, Concerned Drivers Union, and Abossey Okai Spare-part Dealers Association—had previously pushed Mahama.
The unions argued that John Mahama would be the most effective president for tackling the nation’s present economic problems.
As she presented the petition, Setsofia Quashie, the Motor Riders Association’s public relations officer, stated that Ghanaians are eager for a change in administration because it will revolutionize the country’s economy.
Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, a former finance minister and governor of the Bank of Ghana, and Kojo Bonsu, a former metropolitan chief executive of Kumasi, have already announced that they will run for the position of NDC flagbearer when the party opens nominations for the presidential primary.
The NDC will likely prevail in the general election in 2024, according to a recent research by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU).
The next presidential and parliamentary elections are scheduled for 2024, but due to a constitutionally mandated term limit, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is not eligible to run for a third term. Instead, it was noted that the NDC could only accomplish the feat by electing a new candidate in addition to Mahama.
