Nominations for presidential and parliamentary elections of the NDC have opened for three days at a cost of GH¢30,000 and GH¢5000 respectively.
In an interview on VOA’s Straight Talk Africa in October 2022, Mr Mahama said he had not decided whether or not he will contest in the primaries.
He noted at the time that he will make his decision known during the party’s primaries.
Mr Mahama is yet to declare this officially to Ghanaians.
The presidential and parliamentary primaries of the NDC will be held on May 13, 2023.
