Founder of National Democratic Congress and former president of Ghana, H.E. Jerry John Rawlings has sent his congratulatory message to immediate past president John Dramani Mahama for winning the NDCs presidential Candidate election held on Saturday.
H.E John Mahama won the election with an emphatic 95% as delegates threw their full weight behind him to lead the party into the 2020 elections.
Papa J in a Facebook post wrote: “My congratulations to former President J. D. Mahama on his election as the presidential candidate of the NDC.
My congratulations also go to all the other candidates for the dignified manner they conducted themselves throughout the process and for accepting the results in a mature and good-natured manner.
While congratulating ourselves as a party for a relatively smooth process, we have to remember that this is only the first step of the task to convince the larger Ghanaian electorate.
I urge the candidate, the party leadership and all the grassroots to work together to re-embrace the NDC’s core principles in a bid to carve a positive message and image for the party.
