Former President John Mahama is scheduled to speak on the transparent and ethical financing of political campaigns today, Wednesday, March 22. 

The programme will be on the theme “Financing political campaigns in Ghana we want: A case for more transparent and broad-based citizen participation.”

It will be organised at the UPSA auditorium between 5 pm to 10 pm. In a Facebook post on Wednesday, Mr Mahama said he is upbeat about the event.

“I look forward to this evening’s engagement at the UPSA on transparent and ethical financing of political campaigns, ahead of the 2024 elections.”

The former president also added that he will be using the occasion to “launch my campaign fundraising platform to illustrate how politicians generally and political parties can broaden and make more transparent, their sources of financing.”

He thus expressed his appreciation of the organisers.

“My thanks go to my friends in Civil Society who have worked with my team to make this dream possible.”

Mr Mahama has officially filed his nomination form to contest in the National Democratic Congress’ flagbearership race. His forms were submitted on his behalf by a team led by the NDC’s Campaign Manager for the 2020 general elections, Professor Joshua Alabi.

While filing the forms, Prof. Alabi urged NDC delegates to give John Dramani Mahama a 99 per cent endorsement to become the flagbearer of the party.
