The former president said he was humbled by the support he has received.
The post on his social media pages read: “I am overwhelmed by your generosity- that within 24 hours many of you, not only known supporters of the NDC, have come together and raised more than enough to support the cost of picking my forms and filing the nomination to lead our great party to #Victory2020”
“I am further humbled by the teeming number of you, who gathered in my office to contribute your widows mite to my campaign. Thankyou.”
Some 96 National Democratic Congress legislators have purportedly raised over GHc 600,000 for Mr. Mahama’s bid to become the NDC flagbearer, according to the Kumbungu MP, Ras Mubarak.
“Initially, we thought we would just raise GHc420,00 cedis but very interestingly, a lot of support in terms of raising the funds has come from friends, well-wishers and members of the party. From the last count we’ve raised a little over GHc 600,000.’’
