Former President Of the Republic of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has observed that losing the 2020 elections marginally to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) was actually a blessing in disguise.

In his opinion, if they had won, the NDC would have found it difficult because of a ‘big hole’ dug by the Akufo-Addo-led government which he claimed the NPP has fallen into themselves.

“[But] what God has said no one can change so God said, ‘NDC, stand aside. Let those who dug their hole fall into the hole. And today, they have fallen deep into their own hole.”

Mr Mahama made this known while addressing party delegates at the Amazing Hotel in Zebilla in the Upper East Region as part of his campaign tour.

The former President is on a campaign tour, canvassing for votes ahead of this month’s presidential primaries.

He is seeking to lead the NDC for the fourth time. Mr Mahama insisted on Tuesday, May 2 that 2024 “will be a different election”, pointing out how the branch executives will be leading the charge.

He made this statement days after the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) predicted that the NDC will win the 2024 elections. According to the EIU, the NDC, which will undoubtedly be led by John Dramani Mahama, is the overwhelming favorite to win and win a majority in the legislature.

This was stated in the organization’s national report, which was made public on Friday, April 28.

EIU said the contests for both parties will be highly competitive “with several high-profile figures expected to contest.” The report also said there will rather be an anti-incumbency sentiment and public dismissal for the government, virtually handing power over to the largest opposition party.
