The former President, John Dramani Mahama, has said he has no favourite candidates in the upcoming elections of the National Democratic Congress.
He has cautioned the aspirants to desist from associating him with their campaigns, emphasising his neutrality on the respective candidates and his readiness to cooperate with persons who will come out as victors after the Congress.
Of keen interest as indicated in a statement issued from his outfit Tuesday, December 13, 2022, was the claim that the Mahama family is in support of a particular candidate for the position of Chairmanship.
The Joyce Bawah Mogtari-signed release indicated Mr. Mahama is ready to work with any candidate that would emerge victorious to help “Build the Ghana We Want.”

John Mahama cautions aspirants & denies Mahama family story
Former President John Dramani Mahama wishes to once again caution, in the strongest terms, aspirants and their campaigners who deliberately continue to associate his name with their campaign.
As has been publicly stated by Mr. Mahama, he has no preference and has not endorsed any candidate in the ongoing NDC national executive elections, which climaxes on Saturday at the 10th National Delegates Congress.
Mr. Mahama has noted the attempt by some candidates to push a narrative, despite his previous cautions, that he supports their candidature.
Of paramount interest to President Mahama is Victory for the NDC in 2024 to work with expectant and suffering Ghanaians to “Build the Ghana We Want.” He, like other supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), will work with whoever the delegates choose and elect.
Meanwhile, the Office of HE John Dramani Mahama condemns a publication in a tabloid newspaper that the family of the former President is in support of one of the aspirants for National Chairman of the NDC.
The said claim and the publication are false, and the rank and file of the party are encouraged to disregard them.
