This follows a closed-door meeting by ten regional chairmen of the party who all signed to approve on Mahama leading the party. What this means is that John Dramani Mahama could be contesting the elections again.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported of how John Mahama declined to state whether he will contest the elections or not. But Mahama's statement attracted disagreement from key party executives who say he is the best candidate for the party in 2020.
YEN.com.gh has come across a statement signed by the party chairmen from all 10 regions of the country.
The statement is also impressing on Mahama to embark on a thank you tour across the country so as to familiarize with Ghanaians.
Aside this statement by the NDC, some key members of the opposition party have also expressed interest in becoming flagbearer of the NDC.
One such person is the former ambassador to the US, Spio Garbrah who claims he has what it takes to lead the party.
