Former President John Dramani Mahama has announced that he will officially launch his bid to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) again on Thursday, March 2.
Favourite to win the May 13 Presidential Primary of the NDC, Mr Mahama faces opposition from three aspirants – Dr Kwabena Duffuor, Kojo Bonsu and Ernest Korbeah – who picked forms when the party opened nominations between Wednesday, February 22 and Friday, February 24.
The former President’s bid to reclaim power for the NDC will be launched at the University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) in Sokode, Ho.
“I invited you to either join me at the Cedi Auditorium at UHAS or watch a live stream of the launch on my Facebook page or Youtube channel from 9:00am,” he stated on Facebook on Tuesday, February 28.
The launch will be the start of a campaign to lead the NDC for the fourth time despite losing the last two elections.
The former President won his first bid to be President in 2012, having finished the term for his predecessor, John Evans Atta Mills, who died in power.
Mr Mahama, however, lost in 2016 and 2020.
His comeback, if successful, will be his historic for not only the NDC but in the annals of the country.
