Former president John Mahama today, Wednesday 20, 2019 is set to wrap up his final campaign by meeting with delegates of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Drobo in the Jaman South constituency in the Brong Ahafo Region.
Mahama has met with NDC delegates in every constituency in the country except Jaman South where he skipped his scheduled meeting during his campaign tour of the Brong Ahafo Region, following skirmishes between two towns in that area.
The former president is seeking the mandate of NDC delegates in Saturday’s flagbearer elections to lead the party to victory in the 2020 elections.
Mr. Mahama is among other high profile aspirants within the NDC who have submitted nomination forms to contest including the former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Sylvester Mensah, and Nadowli Kaleo MP, Alban Bagbin.
Other aspirants are Dr. Ekwow Spio Garbrah; a former Trade and Industry Minister; Former Vice Chancellor of the University for Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), Prof. Joshua Alabi, Goosie Tanoh and Nurudeen Iddrisu
There was speculation that Mr. Mahama had named Dr. Zanetor Rawlings, daughter of former president and NDC’s founder, Jerry John Rawlings as his running mate.
But his campaign team has since denied such reports.
The team said Mr. Mahama is currently focused on his official duties and his campaign to be flagbearer of the NDC.
