Former presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress, (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has expressed optimism in regaining power ahead of the 2024 elections.
John Mahama who embarked on a tour to appreciate supporters of the party for voting for him in the presidential games addressed some executives and supporters in Bolgatanga in the Upper East region, and he assured them that NDC will win 2024 elections because they have learnt their lessons.
According to him, the NDC won the parliamentary and presidential polls but power eluded them because their arms were twisted.
Addressing party executives and supporters in Bolgatanga in the Upper East region, President Mahama said the NDC has learnt its lessons and will be ready to snatch power from the governing party in 2024.
“That lesson has been painfully learnt and shall not be forgotten. Elections are won or lost at the polling stations and collation levels and doing everything right, not at the Supreme Court” he added.
He also hailed the people of the Upper East Region for their contribution to the NDC’s effort by giving the party 14 out of the 15 seats in the parliamentary elections.
The former President also said the NDC increased its votes from around 4 million to over 6 million votes in the Presidential elections adding “but for arm twisting, we would have had 145 seats, and won a clear majority in Parliament.”
He stated that “we have learnt from our mistakes. Next time we’ll score 15 over 15 in this region.”
