Former President John Dramani Mahama believes he is the best person to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) into the next general election.

According to Mr Mahama, the current state of the country is at its most dire level and for that matter, the party cannot risk presenting a candidate without the know-how to confront the challenges head-on.

“Ghana at this time does not need a ‘try-me-too-leader,” he said on Thursday, March 2 as he officially declared his candidature to lead the NDC into Election 2024.

“[Ghana needs] a leader who accepts responsibility and works to fix the problem and not one who shifts blame to others.”

He made these comments during the launch of his flagbearership campaign themed ‘Building The Ghana We Want Together’.

Addressing party faithful in Ho, John Mahama explained that trust in the Akufo-Addo-led government has been eroded due to the economic mismanagement resulting from incompetent, inefficient leadership and general non performance he described as abysmal.

“Our present state and its effect on our people trouble me a lot,” he said.

The former President said he has over the period monitored the country’s problems and “of course, I know how to deliver that badly needed change,” he added.

The flagbearer-aspirant insisted that “We will not run a government of slogans, instead we will run a government of action.”

Mr Mahama joins former Finance Minister, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, former Mayor of Kumasi, Kojo Bonsu and businessman, Ernest Kwaku Krobea as personalities who are in the running to be elected the NDC’s flagbearer into the 2024 election.
