Former President John Mahama has picked forms to contest the upcoming National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential primary.
Mr Mahama’s 2020 Campaign Manager and NDC stalwart, Prof Joshua Alabi, led a delegation to pick the form on his behalf on Wednesday.
Prof Alabi was joined by several party Regional Chairmen and supporters at the NDC headquarters at Adabraka.
“The country is sinking and needs a very experienced hand to rescue it from sinking. I am very confident that come January 2025, NDC will be forming a new government under the leadership of his Excellency John Dramani Mahama.
“We have done it before and we have experienced hands to assist John Mahama to do it again. Somewhere in the 80s when it was difficult for the country, it was the experienced hands of the NDC that moved the country into prosperity.
