The opposition National Democratic Congress has warned its members to stop campaigning for people interested in the party’s flagbearership slot ahead of the 2020 elections.
According to the party’s National Organizer, Mr. Kofi Adams, the party is trying to reorganize itself ahead of the 2020 election and that should be the focus for each member.
Speaking to Accra based Okay FM, the National Organizer explained that the Kwasi Botwe committee’s report has asked that the party be reorganized and rebranded for 2020 and that’s is what they are committed to do.
“Those aspiring to be flag-bearer and are outdooring their posters should focus on reorganizing at the grassroots and constituency levels,” he stated.
Some names such as a former Trade and Industry Minister, Dr Ekow Spio-Garbrah; a former Vice-Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), Prof. Joshua Alabi; a former Vice-President, Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur; a former Chief Executive of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Mr Sylvester Mensah, and the current Minority Leader in Parliament, Mr Haruna Iddrisu are popping up as possible prospects.
However, only one person, Nii Amasa Namoale, a former Member of Parliament (MP) for Dadekotopon, has been bold enough to state that he will contest the NDC flagbearer race, on condition that the former President declines to join the race.
