The private legal practitioner said he took the decision after much soul searching, prayer and consultations with well meaning Ghanaians, loved ones and family.

"I have decided to abate my push for the presidency come 2020 and throw my weight behind His Excellency John D. Mahama," he wrote on Facebook Friday evening.

Admitting his decision was unexpected, he said there is much wisdom in taking this decision.

"It is also in line with the majority of the views in our great party that he is the best person to lead us into battle come 2020."

He continued: "Beyond that, our own future vision and ambitions must be anchored on a broad based support that will make it easy to unite the party when it is time for us to lead.

"In the circumstances, I will not be picking up nomination forms by the deadline set by the National Executive Committee. I encourage my campaign team and all supporters to submit to the vision of the GO4JM Campaign for total and a resounding victory of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in 2020.

"I will like to thank God for His direction at every step of the way and express my profound gratitude to the National Council of Elders, the National Executive Committee, Friends ( far and near) #FriendsofEli2020 and my entire family for the various roles played in this short but momentous campaign to lead the youth of GHANA into a prosperous future. The future is bright and we will lead at God’s appointed time."
