The Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC
), Bernard Allotey Jacobs has predicted that scores of party members will die if former President John Dramani Mahama fails to contest the 2020 presidential election.
Others, he said will also suffer stroke as a result of what he considers a bad decision from the former first gentleman of the land.
“If John Mahama decides not to contest, we will be highly disappointed, people will faint, people will be shocked, others will get stroke, in fact others will die…,” he said.
The educated fisherman said these things will happen because many are anticipating that the former President will return to lead the NDC
in the 2020 polls.
President Mahama claimed that he is still thinking of how best to respond to calls on him to contest the primaries of the NDC
This notwithstanding, Allotey Jacobs told Adom News’ Shine Acquah that his declaration is overdue and will come as a surprise and disappointment if he fails to contest the flagbearership slot of the party.
