Election 2024: I cannot confirm or deny if I will contest – Mahama

Former president John Mahama has said he will keep his opponents guessing on his future political plans as the National Democratic Congress (NDC) goes to the polls next year to elect a presidential candidate.

Speaking to VOA in Washington on Wednesday (12 October 2022), Mahama said he cannot confirm or deny whether he will contest again, having lost the last two elections to incumbent Nana Akufo-Addo.

“I haven’t,” Mahama responded to a question whether he has made up his mind to contest. “It’s good to keep your opponents guessing.”

He added: “Even if I am not running, I am not going to say I am not running. A decision will be taken early next year – the first quarter that’s when we’ll hold our party’s primary for the presidential candidacy. So, we’ll see.”
