I have taken note of the provisional results being declared by the Electoral Commission around the country in respect of the NDC Flagbearership race as well as the outstanding performance by former President John Mahama. I wish therefore to congratulate President John Mahama’s performance on this resounding victory and to wish the NDC family a period of renewal, regeneration and unity leading to victory in 2020.
As we prepare collectively towards election 2020, it is my hope that the various campaign teams in this flagbearership contest can become fully integrated into an effective fighting force ahead of the next general elections.
The Spio-Garbrah campaign team wishes to thank the many individuals, institutions and organizations who played various roles in the support of our campaign. In particular, I wish to thank all members of my campaign team and our regional coordinators, polling agents, and the many activists who worked hard for our campaign around the country as well as those who voted for me. I hope that the values, ideas and energy which drove our campaign will continue to help in brightening the lives of many NDC members and Ghanaians in general.
I once again congratulate the John Mahama campaign team and look forward to the Party’s victory in 2020.
Our journey remains Forward.
Long live NDC
Long Live Ghana
