A stalwart of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwesi Ahwoi, has issued an apology to the party’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, and his running mate, Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang, following his remarks in a viral video.

At an event in Accra for Prof. Opoku-Agyemang, Mr. Ahwoi suggested that she should be prepared for any scenario that could lead to her presidency.

However, his comments were criticized by some NDC members who interpreted them as implying that he did not expect Mahama to complete a potential four-year term.

In a statement on Sunday, March 24, Kwesi Ahwoi clarified that he had no intention of wishing harm upon the former President. He acknowledged his mistake and expressed regret over the misunderstanding caused by his comments.

“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 called on the party’s supporters to move beyond the incident and rally behind Mr. Mahama for the upcoming 2024 elections.

“Comrades and friends, let us put this unfortunate incident behind us and unite behind our flag-bearer, the visionary Nation Builder, to rescue our beloved country in the December 2024 elections.”
