Former President John Dramani Mahama has rescinded his decision for going on a boot-for-boot campaign as he believes winning election demands giving out reasons why one needs to be voted for.

He, therefore, appealed to the delegates of the NDC to give him the nod to lead the Party to victory in 2020.

Mr Mahama said this when he met delegates and constituency executives of Adaklu at Waya.

He said 2020 was the best time to take power from the NPP and asked the delegates to consider his experience and achievements and give him the chance to do more for the country.

Mr Samuel Dorfe, Adaklu Constituency Chairman of the NDC said the constituency would give “all the votes” to Mr Mahama and asked him not to forget Adaklu when elected.

We’ll match NPP boot-for-boot in 2020 – Mahama

Former President John Mahama has warned the governing NPP that the NDC will match them in the 2020 elections if they decide to be violent.
“I am sounding a warning to the NPP: we are going to march them boot for boot. We respect the constitution of this country and the NDC is a democratic party and that is why we abide by the rules of the constitution.
“But the same constitution says that Ghanaians should resist anybody who attempts to subvert the Constitution. And when you go rampaging with forces and intimidating people when they should come and vote, you are subverting Ghana’s constitution. And we have a right to resist you,” he told a gathering in the Volta region.
He added the NDC has a revolutionary background and can be more violent if they choose to be.

The comments come after violence and gunshots marred Thursday by-election in the Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency in Accra.
