Former President John Mahama continues his rallying calls within the National Democratic Congress (NDC) promising that in 2024, the party’s victory at the poll would be unquestionable.
After vowing in the Bono Region that the 2024 elections will be “do or die” Mr. Mahama has said in the Ahafo Region that that same election will provide NDC a victory that no one can question.
“When two sheep knock their heads in a fight, each goes back, prepare and comes back with a bang,” said the ex-President whose may likely emerge at the flagbearer of the NDC to contest for his second term.
“I want to assure you that, this is the stage the NDC is in now. In 2024, we are coming back with a well-prepared force for a victory that no one can argue about. We are just like the sheep which has gone back and coming back with a victorious bang,” he said.
The former President said this in a meeting with the Ahafo Regional House of Chiefs as part of his Thank You tour.
It would be recalled that earlier on Akina FM in the Bono Region, Mr. Mahama had reiterated emphatically that the 2020 elections had been rigged by Akufo-Addo and his NPP and that in 2024, the NDC was not going to allow another rig.
According to him, the upcoming election therefore will be a “do or die” affair.
Mr. Mahama reiterated his rigging argument in the meeting with the Ahafo chiefs.
“We went into a contest in the year 2020. The results has been clear to each and every one of us. We went into an election we know we didn’t lose, (but) what happened at the various collation centres and in court is now behind us,” Mr. Mahama said.
He further revealed national executives of the party will go round to reorganize and rebuild the party from at the regional level.
“Under normal circumstances, I should have come with just two words; “Thank You” and return. However, we must take stock of the various contributions you gave us for you to know we really appreciate it,” he said.
He added “We all come out to vote looking forward to a better life. But look at the economic situation today, unemployment amongst the youth, etc. The NDC cannot fold its arms in despair, but will be willing at any time to help in building our nation.”
“After 5 years, we still have abandoned road projects, school projects, hospitals amongst others. We must speak out on all these issues because it was not my money that was used to construct these projects but our collective taxes. The NDC will surely be back to take this country to a higher height,” he said.
