Former President John Dramani Mahama’s intention of contesting for the presidency again on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in 2020 is gathering momentum, even though it is shrouded in secrecy.

The ex-president went to Kumasi, in the Ashanti Regional capital, in a private jet last Sunday where he is alleged to have held secret meetings with several top guns in the NDC about his intention of running for the presidency again.

The venue of the said meeting, reportedly held Sunday evening, remains a mystery, as Mr. Mahama’s camp doesn’t want their potential opponents in the party to monitor their actions and strategies.

But credible sources confirmed to DAILY GUIDE that the main agenda for the confab was about what could be done, in terms of strategy and planning, to help Mr. Mahama become the NDC presidential candidate and get the support of the opinion leaders.

Tough Congress Ahead
Unconfirmed reports have it that a group of experts from South Africa, allegedly employed by Mr. Mahama to plan his presidential bid, has advised that he (Mahama) would not have it easy during the NDC presidential primary.

The experts, who left the country on Saturday for their home country, reportedly admonished Mahama to immediately start wooing people who are considered to be influential in the NDC across the country into his camp in order to avert any shock during the NDC polls.

Mr. John Mahama, who is not treating the advice given to him by the experts with kid’s gloves, had since started criss-crossing some parts of the country, with Kumasi being his latest destination, ostensibly to woo top NDC members into his camp. He will soon embark on a nationwide tour to ‘thank Ghanaians’ for supporting his government.

Persuasive Message
Mr. Mahama, who was said to sound very convincing throughout his delivery in Kumasi, allegedly told his audience that he has what it takes to lead the NDC to recapture political power from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2020.

According to sources, the former Ghanaian leader stated that he has unfinished business, regarding the effective and proper management of the country, recounting his contributions towards Ghana’s growth whilst in political office.

The former president, the sources noted, did not sound divisive during his delivery as he did not touch on blame game regarding who in the party caused the NDC’s shocking electoral defeat to the NPP’s Nana Akufo-Addo during the 2016 polls.

The sources indicated that he sounded like a person who had done post-mortem to identify what really caused the NDC’s overwhelming defeat, as he indicated that returning the NDC to political power was not difficult for him.
