Former President John Dramani Mahama got a massive endorsement at the National Democratic Congress headquarters in Accra where a special voting centre was created to enable national executives to vote.
Out of the total 42 votes at the head office, Mr Mahama secured 33. About 57 were expected to vote but only 42 turned up.
His closest challenger was Sylvester Mensah who polled four (4) votes while Goosie Tanoh got two (2) votes.
Alban Bagbin and Professor Joshua Alabi recorded one vote each.
Alhaji Nurideen Mohammed and Ekwow Spio Garbrah got no votes at the NDC head office. There was one rejected vote.
Mahama, who is eyeing a comeback after losing the 2016 elections to archival Nana Akufo-Addo, has taken a giant leap at the centres.
Former President John Mahama’s popularity in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) came under test today as he battled six other aspirants for the flagbearer slot of the party ahead of the 2020 elections.
Over 260,000 delegates of the NDC voted across the 275 constituencies in the country to elect a leader for the party in the 2020 general election.
