Former President John Dramani Mahama has cautioned the general public and members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to stop associating his name with ongoing campaigns.

This according to Mr. Mahama is because neither he nor his family has endorsed any candidate in the NDC national executives election which will climax on December 17.

In a press release sighted by JoyNews, the 2020 flagbearer of the NDC stressed that his only interest is the victory of the party in 2024, hence he is ready to work with “whoever the delegates choose and elect.”

“The office of HE John Dramani Mahama condemns a publication in a tabloid newspaper that the family of the former president is in support of one of the aspirants for National Chairman of the NDC,” his statement added.

He therefore used the opportunity to caution the rank and file of the party to disregard the claims since they are untrue.
