Race to the Top: Former President John Mahama to Face Rigorous Vetting for NDC Flagbearership


Former Ghanaian President John Mahama is set to be vetted today for the National Democratic Congress (NDC)’s flagbearership contest. The vetting will take place at the party’s headquarters in Accra and is expected to commence at 10 am.

The exercise will be conducted by the Chairman of the elections committee of the party, Kakra Essamuah, who has indicated that the committee will thoroughly vet the aspirants on their qualifications for the position, ideologies, and vision for the party.

Speaking on the upcoming vetting exercise, Essamuah expressed his excitement about the process, stating that the filing of nominations was an exciting ceremony. He further revealed that the parliamentary vetting would be held in the next two weeks, likely in the first week of April.

In addition to John Mahama, three other aspirants, former Finance Minister Dr Kwabena Duffuor, former Kumasi Mayor Kojo Bonsu, and businessman Ernest Kwaku Kobeah, have successfully filed their nominations for the flagbearer position.

The filing of nominations for all flagbearer aspirants hopefuls ended last week, marking a crucial stage in the party’s preparations for the upcoming elections. The vetting process is expected to provide an opportunity for the aspirants to showcase their suitability for the position and their plans for the party’s future.

John Mahama, who previously served as Ghana’s president from 2012 to 2017, is considered a leading candidate for the NDC’s flagbearer position. He has been actively campaigning for the position, touting his achievements during his previous term in office and outlining his plans for Ghana’s future if he is elected.

The NDC is one of Ghana’s major political parties and has a significant following across the country. The upcoming flagbearer contest is expected to be closely watched by political analysts and the public alike, as it will determine the party’s candidate for the upcoming elections and potentially impact Ghana’s political landscape for years to come.
