Mr Mahama filed his nominations after he had his forms endorsed by all the two hundred and seventy five (275) constituencies across the country.
The president remarked that the NDC has a great track record in government which is enough to guarantee them victory.
“Our party has a great track record in government and even despite the challenges and tribulations that we have faced in the last few years, our development record is impressive,” he said.

Mr Mahama however called on party members to unite as the party prepares for the elections.
“We have a battle ahead. And I’ll expect that all of us will in unity and togetherness, go into this battle and by the grace of God, we shall emerge victorious” he advised.
The National Democratic Congress has set its presidential and primaries for November 7.
President Mahama is expected to face competition from George Boateng, a former constituency executive of the party, who has revealed that he will pick new forms after party executives said the initial one he bought was a draft copy.
Meanwhile, the party will on Thursday close nominations to members interested in contesting the presidential and parliamentary primaries.
