Each National Democratic Congress (NDC) delegate will receive GH 40 from the John Dramani Mahama campaign to help them get to the polling places for Saturday’s presidential and parliamentary primaries.
The campaign manager for John Dramani Mahama, Professor Joshua Alabi, is cited as saying, “There must be no discrimination in the disbursement of the GH40 per delegate T&T money.”
According to a statement released by John Dramani Mahama’s office on May 12, the sum won’t be a substitute for what the party will provide.
“The Campaign believes supporting the delegates to travel to the centers will ensure a high voter turnout and every voter will be empowered to vote and return home without financial impediment in these difficult economic times,” the statement signed by the Spokesperson of Mr Mahama, Joyce Bawa Mogtari, said.
On Saturday, May 13, candidates for the NDC’s 2024 elections will be chosen through primaries held across the nation.
When Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, one of the candidates for flagbearer, filed a lawsuit in the Accra High Court to enjoin the election, the process was almost put on hold.
On Friday, May 12, he retracted his lawsuit and subsequently his candidacy.
As a result, Kojo Bonsu, his appointee, and former president Mahama will compete for the single ticket of who will represent the NDC in 2024.
