I'll lead a government beyond 'family and clan syndrome' – Mahama

Former President John Mahama has said he will work day and night to lead the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to victory in the 2020 general elections if elected flag bearer of the party come Saturday, 23 February 2019.

In a short video posted on his Facebook wall, Mr Mahama said: “When you vote for John Mahama, I will fight hard and work day and night with you to ensure our victory and address the problems of unemployment and the high cost of living in the country”.

He continued: “Together we will present to our countrymen and women a renewed and reinvigorated NDC, a party ready and able to lead Ghana beyond the unprecedented economic hardships of the present day, beyond the rising unemployment and despair of our youth, beyond the closure and collapse of financial institutions and businesses, beyond the dishonesty and nonchalance of the current administration, and beyond the family and clan syndrome that has rightly shocked and outraged so many”.

Mr Mahama is contesting six other candidates for the slot. They include Mr Alban Bagbin, Mr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, Mr Sylvester Mensah, Prof Joshua Alabi, Mr Nurudeen Iddrisu and Mr Goosie Tanoh.
