There’re Board Chair, Ambassador, DCE positions; don’t worry if you don’t become an MP – Mahama to NDC PC hopefuls

John Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama has told all Parliamentary Candidate hopefuls of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to engage in a clean campaign ahead of the primaries.

He told that them to rally behind whoever will be elected the Parliamentary Candidate and work to ensure that the NDC wins power in the 2024 general elections.

If the party comes to power, Mr Mahama said, there are several appointments to be done including Board Chairmanship, District Chief Executive (DCEs) and Ambassador appointments which eventual failed Parliament Candidate hopefuls can benefit from.

Speaking to delegates as he resumed his campaign tour in the Eastern Region on Tuesday, April 11, Mr Mahama who is seeking to be elected flagbearer for the NDC said “Let us not resort to insult because we are one family, this is one party, we are looking for one thing, power.

“Let us support whoever will be elected parliamentary candidate and when your time comes you will also be supported.

“It is not only the MP that we have, if we come to power we have board chairmen, we have Ambassadors, DECs, and a lot of appointments and so if you don’t become an MP  you will get an appointment.

“So let us keep the campaign decent and when one person has emerged let us all support that person and let the party come to power.”
