The Minority Caucus in Parliament are backing former president John Dramani Mahama to be elected flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) ahead of the 2024 elections.
According to Odododiodio lawmaker, Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye, all lawmakers in the Minority Caucus have agreed to make him the party’s next candidate.
“To me, as I sit here and I know with 137 Members of Parliament that he is our next flagbearer. I am talking of 137 MPs who are leaders of our constituencies, we have resolved already. He is our next candidate,” he said on Citi TV.
“We have a lot of people but he is we have marketed most, he is the one most Ghanaians trust, he is the one Ghanaians have come to appreciate the difference between somebody who believes in good governance, somebody who has a vision for his country… and someone who just came for self-aggrandizement, to satisfy his capricious belief that he was born to be president,” he added.
