Dr Edward Nasigre Mahama, the five-time presidential candidate of the People’s National Convention (PNC), will not be contesting this year’s presidential election.
“I am stepping aside as the presidential candidate of the PNC. I will not contest either the party’s presidential primary or the national elections,” he told the Daily Graphic in a telephone interview yesterday.
Dr Mahama, who is the leader of the PNC and currently Ambassador at Large appointed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, was sharing some insights on what the PNC was doing in preparation towards the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections.
In a video making rounds on the internet, Kofi Adoma, highlighting the news bulleting on Angel FM broke the news that Mahama over obvious reasons has bowed out the 2020 presidential election.
