General Secretary for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia says the party will not stop former flagbearer aspirants and new candidates from contesting John Dramani Mahama for the flagbearership in the 2024 polls.
Speaking on Class FM Monday, he noted that nothing within the party’s constitution disqualifies Mr Mahama from contesting again and therefore he’ll be allowed to lead the party if the structures permit.
“He was one of the people who contested the presidential primaries and won and proceeded to lead the party in the general election and the party claims he did not lose. So, if he decides to come back, there’s nothing within the party that disqualifies him”, Mr Asiedu Nketia said.
“The party does not impose candidates or the leadership of the party does not impose candidates”, he said, adding: “We allow the structures to make their decisions and we implement the decisions”.
