NDC Communicator to contest Mahama in 2024 flagbearership race
Former Presidential aspirant on the ticket of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and communications team member of the NDC, Stephen Atubiga has hinted of his intention to contest in the 2024 presidential primaries of the party.
Atubiga was part of candidates who contested John Dramani Mahama in flagbearership race ahead of the 2020 general elections.
Others include Sylvester Mensah, Prof. Joshua Alabi, Alban Bagbin.
He later pulled out of the race to throw his weight behind Mahama.
However, he seems to be preparing to contest in 2024 again.
He was forced to reveal his intention when rumours were rife on social media that Vice President Bawumia is likely to be rejected by the party after President Akufo-Addo’s last term comes to end in 2024.
According to Atubiga, he would love to contest Dr Bawumia in the 2024 elections.
This, he said is something he has been craving for all these years.
“I have been craving so so bad in facing Bawumia in the 2024 presidential election,” he revealed in a social media post sighted by this portal.
He further sounded a word of caution to the NPP not to betray Dr. Bawumia just like they allegedly did to the late former Vice President, Aliu Mahama.
“NPP must not betray Bawumia like they did to Aliu,” he said.
