Mahama calls on religious authorities to denounce prejudice at the EC in the 2024 elections. Former President John Dramani Mahama has urged the church to speak up about concerns about the 2024 election process as the moral voice of society. 

He asked the church to act on his concerns, which included several issues related to the Ejisu by-election and the current limited voter registration drive.

Former President Mahama stressed the importance of the church supporting neutrality and ensuring a free and fair election during a meeting with the Christian Ecumenical Council on Monday. He emphasized how vital the church is to maintaining democratic values and advancing justice within the electoral system.

“This president is placing people with political experience in positions of trust where they are expected to maintain objectivity and impartiality. Individuals who previously served as the party’s IT support system and communicators are now Commissioners of the Electoral Commission. In what way do you think they will remain impartial and fair in the events? 

Individuals who once attended the TESCON event on campus are Commissioners of the Electoral Commission. We aim to awaken the nation’s conscience and make them see that doing the right thing is necessary to ensure the people’s desire is ultimately fulfilled. 

Consequently, we will continue to do our part leading up to the election. We will raise the red flag whenever we believe something is not going well. Furthermore, we think the church community ought to be watchful and alert to ensure that the proper thing is done.

According to Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, John Mahama of the NDC must also grant him the right to run for president. 

He said the NDC flagbearer had been President before, and it is his duty now to rule the country as well. 

During a visit to the Wa Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV’s palace on Sunday, May 19, Dr Bawumia stressed that while Mr. Mahama has already served as President, he still needs to have the chance to do so. Therefore, he advised Mr. Mahama to maintain caution and let him take his turn. 

“I am [my primary opponent’s] child as well. Since he has served as president previously and I have not, we are both from the North. I have encouraged John Mahama, my elder brother, to be patient with me so that I might also serve as president of this nation.” 

“If the presidency is coming home, then we should have it for eight years rather than four years,” he declared. “I will be able to be president for eight years, and he can only be president for four years.” 

Dr. Bawumia has pleaded with Ghanaians not to support former President John Mahama throughout his statewide campaign journey.
