Aide: Mahama Supports No Parliamentary Candidate
The aide to former President John Dramani Mahama has debunked reports that he supports a particular parliamentary candidate to the sitting MP for Asawase constituency, Muntaka Mubarak.
In a statement, Joyce Bawah Mogtari said the report is false.
“Our attention has been drawn to yet another false publication by the NPP’s Daily Guide Newspaper suggesting that President John Dramani Mahama is supporting a candidate against the incumbent Member of Parliament for Asawase, Hon. Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak.”
She noted that the former President has no preferred candidate.
According to her, the “unintelligent and false” publication is only meant to stoke confusion among the party folks.
She said Mr Mahama trusts delegates to choose a candidate of their choice.
“The NDC has always trusted and relied on the ability of its delegates to choose, out of the many excellent NDC candidates ready to serve the people of Ghana in various offices, the very best to lead them. President Mahama has no doubt that they would continue to do so without any difficulty.”
It concluded, “The NDC will secure an emphatic working majority of seats in the next Parliament that will support the next NDC government to fix the mess created by the NPP and build the Ghana that we all want, together.”
