He received 5,569 votes (65.17% of the vote), as against his main contender, the immediate past chairman of the party, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, who garnered 2,892 votes (33.81%).

“The first thing I will say is that this celebration must be very short,” Mahama said after the elections. “We must cut the celebration short and set to work immediately.”
He said the stakes are high in the 2024 elections.
“Some people say ‘fear delegates’ but I believe that the delegates have the best wisdom and they have spoken and told us what they want and it is our duty to work with the blueprint that they have given us.
“These gentlemen and women here have been elected by the delegates to serve a mandate till 2026,” Mahama added.
