Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has urged the two unsuccessful presidential candidates in the party's recent primaries to work together with him in order to reclaim the seat of government from the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Confirming the phone calls he received, Mahama stated that former Finance Minister Dr Kwabena Duffuor and former Kumasi Mayor Kojo Bonsu congratulated him on his victory.
In a tweet, Mahama emphasized the need for cooperation, stating, “The internal competition for flagbearer is over. Cooperation is what we need to build the Ghana we want together.”
During his post-primaries acceptance speech at the University of Development Studies in Tamale, the former President called for cooperation among elected parliamentary candidates, unsuccessful aspirants, and party members.
Mahama highlighted the importance of transitioning from competition to cooperation to achieve a better Ghana and a stronger NDC.
In the NDC primaries, Mahama secured an overwhelming 98.9 per cent of the votes, with Dr Kwabena Duffuor and Kojo Bonsu as his competitors.
Dr Duffuor withdrew from the race shortly before the primaries, citing irregularities with the voters' register and the photo album.
Following Mahama's victory, Kojo Bonsu congratulated him on his landslide win and personally called him to convey his congratulations.
