Details: The 3 Candidates Likely To Lead NDC In 2024 If Mahama Refuses To Contest

Published

on


With the 2024 contest for the Presidency already gaining momentum, Ghanafeed takes a look at the three persons most likely to lead the NDC should former President Mahama decline to contest again.

The race has already began in the NPP with the Vice President, Mahamudu Bawumia and Minister for Trade and Industry, Alan Kyeremateng leading the pack, even though persons like Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto and Joe Ghartey have also announced interest.

In the NDC though, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama remains the favorite considering his popularity among the grassroots both within and outside the NDC.

However, this portal has also picked up credible reports that the former President may not run for the Presidency again, even though some elders of the NDC are still persuading him to rescind his decision to retire.

As it is still unclear if Mr Mahama will contest for the flagbearership of the NDC again, below is a look at the 3 main contenders who are likely to lead the NDC in 2024 in case the former President retires:

  1. Haruna Iddrisu: Widely tipped as the ideal replacement for John Mahama, Mr Haruna Iddrisu has distinguished himself as a staunch politician, having worked his way from student politics through to the mainstream. A man with considerable grassroots support, especially in his home region, Haruna Iddrisu has also earned the respect of even his political opponents with his candor and humility. Recent events with regard to the Minority caucus’ approval of some appointees of the President has left a minor blip on his reputation as far as party foot soldiers are concerned. Mr Iddrisu needs to work hard to once again gain the trust of the Core of the Party support.

2. Samuel Ofosu Ampofo: Probably the most underrated of the three, Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, the current National Chairman and leader of the NDC is an astute politician and one whom you underestimate at your own peril. Having worked his way from his humble beginnings as a photographer to occupy the topmost leadership position of one of the largest political parties in Ghana, it is no doubt that the man knows his way around the political environment. Though he has kept a low profile, persons close to him have claimed that Mr Ofosu Ampofo is actually nursing his ambitions for 2024. In fact, Allotey Jacobs, the expelled former central regional chairman of the NDC has alleged that Mr Ofosu Ampofo is part of a cabal who sabotaged former President Mahama in the 2020 elections in order to see the materialization of their own selfish interests in 2024. Stephen Atubiga and Gabby Asare Otchere Darko have also claimed separately that the Chairman of the NDC is planning to contest for the flagbearership of the NDC in 2024.

3. Prof. Joshua Alabi: An astute academic and former rector of the UPSA, Prof. Joshua Alabi contested the flagbearership of the NDC prior to the 2020 elections and lost to John Mahama. He was eventually made the campaign manager for the NDC in the 2020 elections. After the Party’s defeat in the 2020 elections, posters and fliers announcing Prof. Alabi’s candidature were spotted online, even though he declined knowledge. He has been one of the persons who have received the most bashing in the aftermath of the NDC’s defeat in the last election. Prof. Alabi has some serious work to do to gain the confidence of the NDC grassroots if he really desires to contest the party’s flagbearership slot.

We’ll Lay Down Our Lives To Ensure Bawumia Contests As President – Raphael Sarfo

Published

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia cannot be stopped or hindered in anyway from contesting as Presidential candidate on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 elections, Raphael Sarfo Patrick, communication team member of the NPP has said.

According to him, Mr Bawumia has played a critical role in the NPP since 2007, warning that any plan to frustrate the Bawumia’s Presidential ambitions would be met with brute opposition.

“From 2007 till date, we know the contribution of Dr. Bawumia to NPP as flagbearer. As a PhD holder, he could have decided to leave the party and sought greener pastures after the party failed to win power with him as running mate to Akufo-Addo. Dr. Bawumia has been a backbone to President Akufo-Addo from opposition to the government. We will make sure nobody impedes his right to contest flagbearership position in the party”, Sarfo Patrick was reported by mynewsgh.

He continued: “We are not going to sleep. We’ll defend and protect Dr. Bawumia 24/7 from insults and lies that might emanate from the people. We will expose people if we have to. Those hatching a plan “B” should rescind their decision.”

‘Hypocrite’ Chief Justice Should Rather Be Dragged To Disciplinary Committee, Not Ayine – NDC MP

Published

on


Lawmaker for Tamale Central, Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed has slammed the Chief Justice for dragging Bolgatanga East MP, Dominic Ayine to the disciplinary committee of the Ghana Legal Council for some comments made.

Speaking to Citi TV, Murtala Mohammed said the Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin Yeboah is guilty for the same purpose of which he had dragged Ayine to the GLC.

According to him, the Chief Justice had also participated in programmes that sought to attack a decision made by Justices of the Supreme Court on a specific case.

“The hypocrisy of the Chief Justice is telling. Just a few weeks before this petition, the Chief Justice participated in a similar political programme that was considered to be attacking a decision made by the Justices of the Supreme Court. The purpose [of the programme] was to challenge the decision of the Supreme Court. I am just exposing the hypocrisy- that he participated in a programme that sought to attack the decision of the Supreme Court in the Re: Akoto case,” Murtala Muhammed explained.

Dr Ayine at a CDD roundtable discussion on ‘Presidential Election Petitions and their Impact on Africa’s Democracy’ reportedly questioned the independence of Ghana’s judiciary.

Dr Ayine said: “I expected the Supreme Court to apply faithfully the rules of procedure to – in terms of adducing evidence – prove the petitioner’s case and so on. What we saw was a Supreme Court that was constantly putting hurdles in the way of the petitioner in terms of adducing evidence to prove the petitioner’s case.

However, the statement did not go down well with the Chief Justice, Anin-Yeboah who referred to the General Legal Council for investigation comments made by the former deputy Attorney General.
