Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama has revealed that his decision to run again as president was influenced by several reasons.
According to him, he did not just jump into taking that very important decision.
Former president Mahama made this known at a press briefing ahead of the NDC's manifesto launch on Monday, September 7, 2020.
“In all honesty, I didn’t take the decision to run for a second term as President neither easily, nor quickly. I didn’t jump into it. I did it out of a sense of urgency, after I began to contemplate more and more thoroughly about our vulnerabilities as a nation,” he said.
Mahama said he wants to leave a legacy, one of the burning desires that drive him to lead the country again.
“I run for President because I want to leave a legacy: a solid infrastructure, with 100% access for all. With this legacy, we will build a truly developed Ghana, on a par with the advanced nations.
“I know how to do it, part of it I’ve already accomplished, and since I know how to do it and the current government doesn’t, I feel I have the moral duty to ask for a second term. This is not about me, it’s about Ghana and Ghanaians.”
In other news, the National Communications Director of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi, has revealed that his constant attacks on the Akufo-Addo government form a part of his job description.
According to Sammy Gyamfi, he would keep being persistent in his critique of this current government and would not relent to ensure good governance.
In a report filed by Pulse.com, Sammy Gyamfi said no one in the NPP should see him as a threat, as he is only doing his job.
