Members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have been urged to let go off Kwesi Ahwoi’s statement urging the party’s running mate should prepare to take over as president should the NDC win the 2024 elections.

Boateng Gyan, a Founding Member of the opposition party, challenges followers to instead channel their energies into working hard to ensure the NDC recaptures power come the December 7 general elections.

Mr. Ahwoi while speaking at an event in Accra recently to outdoor Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang suggested to her to prepare herself to takeover in an event that Mr. John Mahama is unable to act as president.

His comments have since been greeted with several interpretations, some to the effect that he does not expect Mahama to complete a potential four-year term if elected President.

However, Kwesi Ahwoi, in a statement on Sunday, March 24, 2024, has apologised for his earlier comment noting that, he had no intention of wishing harm upon the former President.

“I sincerely regret the wrong impression that my comment has created. Indeed, it was not my intention, and never will it be my intention to pray that H.E. John Mahama does not serve his full four-year term when he wins the 2024 general elections.

“I concede that I misspoke on the occasion. I accept the criticisms in good faith, even though some of the criticisms arise out of a deliberate misrepresentation of my statement.

“I hereby render an unreserved and unqualified apology to H.E. John Dramani Mahama, Prof. Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, the leadership and rank and file of the great NDC,” he said.

Speaking on the development on the Angel Morning Show Monday March 25, Yaw Boateng Gyan despite describing Mr Ahwoi’s comments as “very unfortunate” called for cease fire and said the later’s apology must be accepted wholeheartedly.

The former National Organiser who indicated that such developments could potentially affect their chances of wrestling power from the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP), commended Kwesi Ahwoi for his swift apology to prevent any disunity in the party.

“People have started linking this particular matter to that of Professor Kwamena Ahwoi’s one after he published his book in 2020 which many still believe contributed to us [NDC] loosing the seat so while we’re heading into another election in 2024, it should not repeat itself,” he advised.
