The former President, John Dramani Maham, who is seeking to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) a third time has engaged the party’s parliamentarians in a secret meeting at the State Tower Block, popularly known as Job 600.
Mr. Mahama called for the meeting for one purpose, to solicit their votes and support in their upcoming flagbearer primaries scheduled for January 26, 2018.
Mr. Mahama who is keen on making history as the first former President to be reelected as Head of State in his interaction with the NDC MPs said the party has to work hard and be ready to run the country in 2021.
“My brothers and sisters, I believe we can make history, and that is the history of the re-election of a person who was president before. It is a rare phenomenon,” he said in a meeting with National Democratic Congress (NDC) legislators on Tuesday.
“I believe the NDC will write a page in the history books of Ghana with the reelection of a person who has been president before.”
Mr. Mahama is already looking beyond the NDC presidential primaries in January 2019 as he says his party’s prospects “are very bright.”
Some 96 members of the NDC caucus in Parliament purportedly raised over GHc 600,000 for Mr. Mahama’s bid to become the NDC flagbearer
He stressed to the NDC MPs that the party must start strategising for what they will do when they assume the mantle of governance.
