The New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Director of Communications, Richard Ahiagbah, has stated that the NPP is prepared to face Mr. John Dramani Mahama in the 2024 general elections.
He claimed that Ghana experienced extreme hardships during the Mahama administration.
“We are ready for him, we are interested in how we can build the economy. What we are interested in is whether or not he has the solution because we saw him vanquished gains that he got, we saw him collapse our economy, we saw him collapse our banking sector, we saw him cause Ghanaians to live in absolute difficulties in this country without electricity, ” Mr Ahiagbah said at a press conference on Wednesday, February 22 to react to Mr Mahama’s decision to pick the forms to contest for the NDC flagbearer position of the party.

Professor Joshua Alabi, former Rector of the University of Professional Studies in Accra (UPSA), chose the nomination forms on Mr Mahama’s behalf on Wednesday.
“We are here to pick up the forms for his HE John Dramani Mahama,” he explained. As you are aware, we are living in extremely difficult times in this country; the economy is in shambles, people are suffering, and the bottom line is that people are pleading with the NDC to return.
“The NDC has gone through all of its structures and elections, and now it is time for the flagbearer to deliver the elections in 2024,” he said.
“Ghanaians are asking for a well-experienced leader, leadership counts,” he added. If experience counts, then choose someone who has done it before and is very humble, someone who loves people and believes in people-centered policies. Fortunately, we have someone like that in the NDC as a country.
We are here to select his form and to work for him, the NDC, and the people of Ghana.
“January 2025 NDC will be forming the new government under the leadership of HE John Dramani Mahama,” the former contestant for the flagbearer post said.
Mr Mahama informed the Minority caucus of his intention to run for president at a meeting in his office in Accra on Tuesday, February 21.
