Mr Mahama further added that the NDC does not seek power for the sake of it but to return NDC into governance come 2020.

Mahama will be addressing the media on later Monday after submitting his presidential nominations at the NDC headquarters in Accra.

The media encounter will take place at the Trade fair centre shortly after the forms are submitted, his campaign spokesperson announced.
