An initiative launched by some NDC Members of Parliament to raise GH ¢420,000 for Former President John Mahama to pay his filing fee to contest for the 2020 NDC flagbearership position has yielded GH¢500,000 in less than 24 hours, far exceeding the amount required by GH ¢80,000!

And the incredible aspect of it is that the amount was realized less than 24 hours after it was launched!

Recommended: GH₵420k filing fee outrageous – Namoale

The initiative began by the MPS4MAHAMA group aimed at getting NDC MPs and former appointees in the Mahama administration willing to donate GH¢1,000 each to realize the amount do so. However, within a couple of hours, persons who are not MPs nor were they appointees in the Mahama Administration began to plead to be allowed to also donate. And when this was allowed, the number of those donating increased by the minute, with members and non-members of the NDC scrambling to donate to ensure the amount is realized.

It started at 9:00 pm on Saturday, December 1, 2018, by 8:05 pm yesterday, Sunday, December 2, 2018, the 420th person had made her donation. Forty five minutes later, at the time of going to the press, the list of donors had reached 500, bringing the total figure realized to GH¢ 500,000!

Meanwhile, further reports gathered by this paper indicate many Ghanaians living abroad are calling their relatives in Ghana to enquire how they can also donate to the cause of the Former President. The enthusiasm to volunteer cash towards Mahama’s campaign is no different among Ghanaians living in Ghana. Some have taken to their facebook pages to enquire how they could make their donations.

The scramble by Ghanaians to donate cash to the cause of Former President Mahama has not surprised many. After the laziness, incompetence and recklessness that President Akufo-Addo and his appointees have exhibited so far, Ghanaians are in a hurry to have Mahama back in the saddle of affairs to bring sanity back in the affairs of the state!
