I’m likely to contest elections again - John Mahama

Mahama in his Eid-ul-Adha message on 20th July, 2021, said Ghanaians should use Eid-ul-Adha to inspire people to give back to humanity something that is bigger.

The former President also sent a specific message to Muslims in the Bole-Bamboi constituency of Savannah stating that he has always cherished their support over the years and that they should continue to pray for him in all his endeavours.

The message of former President Mahama to the Chiefs, Queen mothers, the Imams and the people of the Bole-Bamboi constituency was delivered by the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Bole-Bamboi constituency Alhaji Yussif Sulemana on Bole based Nkilgi FM on the 2021 Eid-ul-Adha day.

The Bole MP said; the former president who is from Bole has asked me to tell the good people of Bole-Bamboi Constituency that, he has not forgotten of the good things they have done for him over the years and that Inshah Allah (God willing) he is likely to come back to contest elections in his party and so they should use this special Eid-ul-Adha day to thank God and to ask for good health, success and victory for him.”

Hon Sulemana added that Prophet Ibrahim was commanded by God to sacrifice his only son Ismael to God and that Ibrahim made an attempt; which is the highest form of obedience to God and so former President Mahama entreats his Bole-Bamboi constituents to continue to be obedient to their creator, their parents, elders and also respect and love each other.

Former President is extremely popular and always receiving massive votes in his home constituency of Bole-Bamboi where he effectively served as the MP for 12 years (1997 – 2009) before rising to become a Vice-President and President of the Republic of Ghana.

In the 2020 presidential elections, John Dramani Mahama polled 30,443 out of 38,392 valid votes representing almost 80% of the votes of the Bole-Bamboi constituency.

This is in contrast to President Akufo-Addo’s 21,872 votes out of 32,196 valid votes representing almost 68% in his Abuakwa South backyard.

I think the former president should not contest the 2024 election like he did in 2020. It will make him look desperate. I am sure the NDC party have other candidates that are equally qualified to stand on the ticket of the party. He should just resign and let others do the work. This is what leaders do.

Aah :hushed::roll_eyes::roll_eyes: but who is more qualified and well marketed in the NDC than the former president John mahama. He is the best man to contest on that ticket so there’s no Challenger koraa. I think he wants to start his campaign is a subtle way

The 2024 election will be different from 2020. It is the era of the opposition per the trend. Bringing Mahama on board as the flagbearer will only cause agitations and the party might get divided. You saw what happened during the NDC’s last presidential primaries.

The boss man has done his part. He should just pave the way for others to do their parts as well.
If not so, he will be perceive to have an unquenchable desire for power. I think the party has credible people to fit into that position. The likes of Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwah, Sammy Gyamfi etc… are also around.

For Sammy Gyamfi, that’s a bad choice. He is too hot to become a president. “Eka be ba fie”. :laughing: :laughing: Ablakwa is good to go. Not forgeting Haruna Iddrisu. They have the men though.

Hahaha :joy::joy::grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes::joy::joy: the guy is just hot in the blood any way. But I think he has the potential and ability as well.
On this note, there a big men in there as well.
