Speaking to journalists after picking the nomination forms on behalf of the former NDC flagbearer, Professor Alabi said Mr Mahama declared his intentions to contest the flagbearership position of the party due to calls from Ghanaians.
“We are here to pick up the forms for John Dramani Mahama. As you are aware we are in very difficult times in this country, the economy is in shambles, people are suffering and the summary here is that people are crying for the NDC to come back.
“The NDC has gone through all its structures, and elections, it is time to come for the flagbearer to deliver the 2024 elections,” he said.[ads4]
