John Mahama: I’ll not forget painful lesson of Election 2020

The former president says the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will put all measures in place to win the 2024 election on the ground instead of seeking redress at the Supreme Court

The former president John Dramani Mahama has said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has learned its lesson after losing the 2020 general election.

Addressing party executives and supporters in Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region, Mahama assured them that for the 2024 elections, the NDC will put all measures in place to win on the ground and avoid going to the Supreme Court for redress.

“That lesson has been painfully learnt and shall not be forgotten. Elections are won or lost at the polling station and collation levels and doing everything right, not at the Supreme Court,” the NDC’s 2020 presidential candidate said.

Mahama also said the NDC increased its votes from roughly four million to over six million votes in the presidential election, adding that, “But for arm-twisting, we would have had 145 seats, and won a clear majority in Parliament.”

He also hailed the people of the Upper East for their contribution to the NDC’s effort by giving the party 14 out of the 15 seats in the parliamentary elections.

“We have learnt from our mistakes,” he said, and promised: “Next time we’ll score 15 over 15 in this region.”

Mahama is on a tour of the country to thank Ghanaians for their support and for voting for him and the NDC’s parliamentary candidates in Election 2020.
