Calls for presidential candidate premature – Mahama to NDC

“I believe people calling for leadership and presidency, it’s absolutely premature. If you ride a lame horse into a race and you lose the race, your priority must be to cure the lameness of the horse and not about who will ride the horse again. You have to cure the horse and make sure it’s no longer lame,” he said.

According to him, once those matters were settled, it would be easy to determine who should or should not lead the party.

“And once you have a fit, healthy horse, it will throw up who the jockey should be. And so absolutely, I believe that the issue of leadership is based on the dynamics of the time. If we do our work well, if we do good branch reorganisation, bring it to the constituency level, to the regional level and have a strong healthy party, the dynamics of the time will determine who will lead the party,” he added.

Mr Mahama further stated that he would support anyone who is considered to lead the party in the next election once a decision is made.

“Whoever leads the party, I am a committed member and I will support that person to the hills.”
