“Some of us have to know his fate before we can take a bold decision whether to contest or not,” he told Accra-based Kasapa FM.

Mr Namoale, who has publicly said he will run for president, said he is not disturbed if the former president decides to run for president again.

He, however, advised Mahama that he still needs 50 plus one vote to become president.

“I am not disturbed when former President Mahama contest for the flagbearership race and I don’t know if he will go,” he said. “But my piece of advice to him is to have in mind that he needs 50 plus 1 votes to get him there.”
