Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has urged Ghanaian electorates to reject New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in the 2024 general election.

Speaking at a Public Lecture at the Christian Service University in Kumasi, the former president said Ghana’s presidency should not be presented to those who present themselves as the future when they have been at the epicentre of our disastrous present.

In a direct swipe at Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, John Dramani Mahama said the NPP flagbearer should stop his 'comedy'.

“Ghanaians are in dire straits and this is not the time for comedy. This is not for a concert party about passing the mythical steer to somebody. There is no space for stale falsehoods and gaslighting. It is unimaginable the narrative by some people that they have championed everything under this government, and at the same time are not responsible for anything under the same government because they were a self-styled driver’s mate.

“It is simply not tenable and an insult to the intelligence of the electorates and the presidency cannot be presented to those who present themselves as the future when they have been at the epicentre of our disastrous present,” John Dramani Mahama said.

Ahead of the 2024 general election, John Dramani Mahama and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia have been tagged as the favourites to win the presidential polls.

However, the two political parties of the two leaders admit that winning the election will be tough and extra work needs to be done.
