Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu says former President John Mahama is his preferred candidate to lead the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2024 election.
There were rumours going round that the Member of Parliament for Tamale South was interested in becoming the flagbearer of NDC in the 2024 election but he has come out to deny the reports, stating that his wish is for Mahama to lead the party.
Speaking to Accra-based CITI TV in an interview, Haruna said as much as it is wish for Mahama to lead again, it is more important for the NDC to join forces and be vigilant at the polling station to prevent the NPP from stealing their votes.
“The NDC will call for greater transparency, especially at the collation of the results. Zero-tolerance for 2024 will be our declaration, and we will police the ballot.
“I always say that for persons who love President Mahama and want his return just as I want, go to your polling station and make sure he wins. Nothing more. If he wins at the 33,000 polling stations, he will be the next President of the Republic.
“It is not about running to take photographs with him thinking that is how you are contributing to the success of the NDC; I don’t think going to take pictures with him means he has won. I think we should go back to our roots as NDC with ‘Operation win your ballot box,” he said.
