Former President John Dramani Mahama has issued an alert about a fake statement announcing his decision to contest the primaries of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
The statement captioned ‘Fake Alert’ by Mr Mahama on Twitter claimed that he had heeded to a resounding call to contest as a candidate to lead the NDC ahead of the 2020 general elections.
The opposition party on August 2 opened campaigning for its flagbearer hopefuls. The General Secretary of the NDC, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketiah announced that the date for the election of the flagbearer of the party is December 7 and urged all aspirants to inform the party of their intention to contest.
Six persons including, Dr Ekwow Spio Garbrah, Prof Joshua Alabi and Sylvester Mensah have informed the party of their intention to contest but Mr Mahama is yet to officially announce his decision.
“Declaring for the declarant?’ Mr Mahama quizzed about his purported statement.
