“I will be the happiest person if Mahama contests the 2020 elections and win hands down. I know Mahama has not expressed his desire to contest but I will personally lead a demonstration against him and force him to contest,” he said.
Baba Jamal was speaking on Adom TV’s morning Show “Badwam” Thursday.
President Mahama lost in last year’s presidential elections to Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
That notwithstanding, Baba Jamal indicated that he expects the ex-President to make a comeback in 2020 adding that he (Baba Jamal) would be hurt if he fails to contest the polls.
He insisted that Mahama will be ‘forced’ by party members to stage a comeback because he is the obvious choice to lead the NDC.
The former Akwatia MP was of the firm belief that former President Mahama will run on the ticket of the NDC due to his love for the party and the people of Ghana.
He again mentioned that the achievements of former President Mahama is comparable to none in terms of leaders of the country; thus making him the obvious choice for the party, especially when Ghanaians have already regretted electing President Akufo-Addo.
