I endorse Mahama’s decision to run again – Terkper

Former Finance Minister, Seth Terkper, has endorsed former President John Dramani Mahama’s 2020 Presidential ambition.

Speaking on Citi TV’s Point of View, Mr. Terkper said: “I believe Ex-President Mahama has credentials that will make him win the NDC flagbearship position. I do endorse his decision to run again .”

John Mahama last Thursday[August 23] officially declared his intention to contest in the party’s presidential primaries, despite the fact that he led the party to one of its worse election performances in 2016 as an incumbent president.

Mahama’s decision, although anticipated, has left some party supporters surprised as they believe Mahama needed not after the humiliating defeat.

Others have however declared their support for John Mahama and welcomed his decision, indicating that he is the best among the about 11 flagbearer hopefuls to make a significant impression and possibly claim victory in the 2020 elections.

Support from Regional Chairmen, MPs

The 10 Regional Chairmen of the NDC have also backed the candidature of Mr. Mahama for election 2020 before he had even made an announcement.

The 10 regional chairman, after a meeting at the time, issued a communique in which they urged the former President to consider running for the 2020 polls.

Ninety-four NDC MPs out of the Minority Caucus of 106 also endorsed Mr. Mahama as the flagbearer for the 2020 polls prior to his announcement.

The list of the MPs backing him was made public after he made his intention to contest public.

The 94 MPs welcomed the decision and promised to support Mahama’s campaign.

A statement from the MPs said: “As Members of Parliament, we would like to express our profound gratitude to His Excellency, John Dramani Mahama for hearkening to the cries of our Constituents which we presented to him when we met him four (4) months ago. Our Constituents had one simple message – President Mahama should avail himself to the people of Ghana to salvage the sinking ship under Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. Today He has heeded the clarion call of the people and we are grateful.”
