The former Deputy Ashanti Regional Joseph Yammin insists that the former President John Dramani will be forced to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2024 general elections even if he is unwilling to contest.
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in the current report on the 2024 elections said “The next parliamentary and presidential elections are due in 2024. Under the constitutionally mandated term limits, Mr. Akufo Addo cannot run for a third term. Mr Mahama is reportedly considering whether to run again, but we expect the NDC to seek to revitalize its prospects with a fresh candidate. After two terms of NPP government, we expect the NDC to win the 2024 presidential election and gain a small majority in parliament.”
Joseph Yammin responding to EIU Report in an interview with Pure Fm’s Osei Kwadwo said “Mahama is already the flag bearer of the NDC and NDC will win the 2024 elections massively with John Dramani Mahama”
When asked what will NDC do if the family of John Mahama prevents him from contesting the 2024 elections he said “John Dramani Mahama doesn’t have family members as we talking now because his family members are NDC members and Ghanaians”
“Kwadwo, let me make this clear to you that not even the blood brother of John Mahama, Ibrahim Mahama and the wife of John Mahama, Lordina Mahama can stop John Dramani Mahama from contesting the 2024 general elections” Yammin disclosed
“Ibrahim Mahama is a nice gentleman and has Ghana at heart but he can never prevent John Dramani Mahama from contesting the 2024 general elections because NDC are bringing John Dramani Mahama whether they like it or not”.
“I respect EIU report because they spent huge amount of Money to do their survey but EIU report cannot change the minds NDC from making John Dramani Mahama as their flag bearer”
Joseph Yammin added that “John Dramani Mahama’s achievements when he was a president will secure him a victory in the 2024 general elections because Nana Addo and Dr Bawumia’s achievement can never match the achievements of John Dramani Mahama”
“Not even John Dramani Mahama himself can say he won’t contest the 2024 elections or be a flag bearer for the NDC because Ghanaians are crying for his good leadership” he added.
