Former President John Dramani Mahama has noted that his decision to seek reelection was a matter of urgency after considering the nation’s vulnerabilities.
According to him, his decision to come back to Ghanaians to give him another chance did not come easily or quickly as he contemplated over it.
In a statement ahead of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) manifesto launch today Mahama said, “In a sense, our manifesto will provide the answer, but it will be a collective answer, coming from all the fabulous NDC members and supporters, men and women, who participated in its formulation”.
“In all honesty, I didn’t take the decision to run for a second term as President neither easily, nor quickly. I didn’t jump into it. I did it out of a sense of urgency, after I began to contemplate more and more thoroughly about our vulnerabilities as a nation”.
“No country can aspire to become developed; no society can be truly resilient in the face of crisis and adversity without a solid economic and social infrastructure.”
