2024 Polls: You can’t be an agent for NDC if you’re weak in Mathematics well – Mahama
Former President John Dramani Mahama has said that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is going to recruit university graduates and qualified persons who can work out arithmetic properly as party agents in the 2024 general elections.
Mr Mahama told delegates of the party in Ketu North on Friday, March 3 as part of his campaign to be elected flagbearer for the NDC in the 2024 general elections that agents are not going to be selected on the basis of who joined the first or who has served the party the longest.
It is about who understands numbers and can do proper calculations, he said.
“Our basis for selecting an agent should not be who came to the party first, it is about who can do the job. Today you need somebody who is educated, somebody who can work arithmetic, if you can’t work arithmetic you are of no use to us, you should be able to compare numbers on the biometric machine to ensure it is the same on the ballot paper.
“If you are a chairman or an executive and you are not qualified, you have children who are in the university or training colleges, bring them and let us train them.”
He further told delegates that vigilance is key to ensuring victory in the 2024 general elections.
He added Ghanaians are waiting for the NDC to come to power.
“We dare not to fail them,” he said.
“NDC will win the 2024 general election if you are very vigilant, we need 1005 per vigilance,” he further indicated.
Mr Mahama launched his campaign in Ho, Volta Region on Thursday, March 2 to contest in the internal elections of the largest opposition party.
The 2020 presidential candidate of the NDC said among other things that “We will strictly enforce prudence and responsibility in the management of public finances by cutting out waste and ostentation, which have become commonplace under this administration.
“Together, we will build the Ghana we want. We shall restore faith in our almost collapsed financial system and embark on sweeping reforms at the Bank of Ghana.
“We shall actively pursue policies to ensure robust local participation in our banking, financial, telecommunications, mining, agriculture, agribusiness and manufacturing sectors. This will be anchored on our plan to grow the economy and create sustainable employment for our youth,” Mr Mahama said.
