Read full statement below:
My attention has been drawn to a publication trending on Ghanaweb and other social media portals that I,
Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, am preparing to contest for
the flagbearership position of the party in readiness for the 2024 presidential elections.
Nothing is further from the truth.
At the moment, together with the leadership of the party, I am focused entirely on throwing my fullest support
behind His Excellency John Dramani Mahama in the presidential election petition that is being litigated in the
It is of the utmost importance that I spare no effort whatsoever in doing whatever is necessary to
prosecute the petition to its logical conclusion.
In addition, I have no desire to challenge His Excellency John Dramani Mahama either today or tomorrow for the
flagbearership of our great party.
The times we are in demand that we deploy all our energies in order to ensurethat the rigging that characterized the last presidential election is exposed and God-willing, the opportunity isgranted to the voters once again to choose the right and proper person to steer the affairs of our beloved country,Ghana.
I call on the teeming supporters and sympathizers of the great NDC to treat the effusions of the unruly cousin of the President with contempt. There is no truth whatsoever in it.
ISSUED IN ACCRA THE 17TH DAY OF JANUARY, 2021.
(HON. SAMUEL OFOSU-AMPOFO)
