Come for re-match in 2020 – Mahama tells Nana Addo

Former President John Dramani Mahama is calling for a "rematch" with President Nana Akufo Addo in the 2020 presidential election.

Speaking during a recent visit to Lancing Secondary School in the United Kingdom, President Akufo-Addo indicated that he was undecided about leading his party in the 2020 polls.

But former President Mahama, who is on a five-day campaign tour of constituencies in the Brong Ahafo Region to meet with NDC delegates ahead of the party’s flagbearership contest, is urging the NPP leader to contest the next elections.

The former president told delegates of Nkoranza South constituency at a meeting in Nkoranza on Thursday that a contest between the two will be the final decider between them since they both won a presidential election.

Sounding very confident of victory in the 2020 elections, Mr Mahama said a "final bout is not just imperative" but it is also "important for the NDC to work hard to reduce the high cost of living and provide jobs".
