I have no desire to contest Mahama for NDC flagbearership – Ofosu Ampofo

National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has said his attention has been drawn to a social media publication by a leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Gabby Octhere Darko to the effect that he intends to challenge former President John Dramani Mahama for the NDC flagbearership post ahead of the 2024 elections.

He said he has no such intentions, therefore, the comments of the former Executive Director of the Danquah Institute should be ignored.

In a statement, he said he is focused on throwing his weight behind Mr Mahama in the Presidential election petition.

“At the moment, together with the leadership of the party, I am focused entirely on throwing my fullest support behind His Excellency John Dramani Mahama in the presidential election petition that is being litigated in the Supreme Court.

“It is of the utmost importance that I spare no effort whatsoever in doing whatever is necessary to prosecute the petition to its logical conclusion.

“In addition, I have no desire to challenge His Excellency John Dramani Mahama either today or tomorrow for the flagbearership of our great party.

“The times we are in demand that we deploy all our energies in order to ensure that the rigging that characterized the last presidential election is exposed and God-willing, the opportunity is granted to the voters once again to choose the right and proper person to steer the affairs of our beloved country, Ghana.

“I call on the teeming supporters and sympathizers of the great NDC to treat the effusions of the unruly cousin of the President with contempt. There is no truth whatsoever in it,” the statement said.
