Addressing the media in Accra on Wednesday, February 23, 2023, Richard said the NPP will again beat Mahama and win the 2024 polls election.

“We have beaten him twice, so you conclude for yourself if we are afraid of him. It is all mathematical, and we have defeated him twice. He is even afraid to plainly declare whether he is going to contest or not. We are ready for him.”

He added that the party is currently saddled with ways to improve the Ghanaian economy and is not perturbed about Mahama, who has no solution to the current economic crisis.
