Former President John Mahama

A short code and a mobile money number have been announced on Monday to raise funds for former president John Mahama to pick forms and file to become the flagbearer of the main opposition.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is demanding a whopping GhC420,000 from each flagbearer hopeful to contest the internal poll in a bid to lead the party in the 2020 general election.

Two groups – Committee for Mahama Election Two (COMET) and MPS4MAHAMA – have outdoored electronic means to solicit funds from the general public to support Mahama.

“Given the extraordinary level of interest shown in the fund-raising effort, we wish to announce an official short code and mobile money account through which contributions can be made.

“All members of the public willing to contribute can do so through the shortcode, *713*2020*amount# on all networks or MTN mobile money number 0540 842 021.

“All pledges of GHC1,000 towards the Filing Fee should be sent by mobile money to 0540 842 021. The shortcode *713*2020*amount# is opened for all contributions no matter the amount,” Ato Ahwoi said in the statement.
