Former President John Mahama will, in the coming days, embark on a nationwide tour on a visit to the 275 constituencies across the nation.
He is expected to meet winners and losers of the just ended Regional Executive elections of National Democratic Congress (NDC).
In a Facebook post on Sunday, he said:
”I have spoken to our newly elected Regional Chairmen and asked them to pass on my congratulatory wishes to all who won positions in the Regional Executive elections.
I have also called and expressed my personal message of encouragement to many of the candidates who were not successful in the elections.
As I have always said, there are no losers in this contest. Our great party, the NDC, is the winner. It is time for the new executives to reach out and bring every one on board for victory in election 2020.
The real work has just begun and we must all put our shoulders to the wheel going forward.
I look forward to meeting you all when I begin visiting the constituencies and regions in the coming weeks”.
Mr Mahama’s intended nationwide tour is to rally for support as he has declared the intention to contest again for the leadership of the party in the 2020 elections.
Others contesting Mahama on the ticket for the flag bearer position ahead of the 2020 elections include the former Vice-Chancellor of the University for Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), Prof. Joshua Alabi, Former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Sylvester Mensah; former Trades and Industries Minister, Ekwow Spio Garbrah; Cape Coast South MP, Kweku Ricketts-Hagan; and PNDC/NDC stalwart Goosie Tanoh.
The rest are: Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin; Handyman Stephen Atubiga, private legal practitioner Elipklim Agbemava, Mr David Doste Kwame Kuwadah and a banker and oil and gas consultant, Nurideen Iddrisu.
