Before that, the member of parliament for Nadowli West will first have to contest the presidential primaries of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
In a interaction with the media in the Upper West Region, the 59-year-old said people should not be surprised if he decided to contest.
According to him, it has been a life-long dream for him to be president.
“Won’t you be happy if I contest,” he responded to a question that sought his interest in the position.
“But for me, if you even ask my teacher M.A Seidu he will tell you that my dream from childhood has been to become a president, so people won’t be surprised, but you will be happy to see me contest the presidency," he added.
