Elect someone who appeals to non-committed members-2nd deputy speaker

An aspiring presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr. Albert Sumana Kingsford Bagbin has appealed to delegates in the northern region to consider making him the party’s flag-bearer to win the 2020 election.

Speaking to the host of Zaa Morning Show. Alhassan Yusahwu Jahafo, the Nadoli Kaleo legislator who doubles as the second deputy speaker of parliament, said the delegates need to elect someone who appeals to non-committed members and voters.

According to Mr Bagbin, none of the seven presidential hopefuls can win the 2020 elections with only the support of their individual candidature.

The NDC flagbearer hopeful also disputed rumours that he has a different agenda aside helping the NDC to capture power back from the ruling NPP. He said anybody with a different agenda will not waste his time to embark on what he called vicious journey of campaign.

Mr Bagbin told Zaa radio that the party is superior to his personal gains and therefore he has no intention of sabotaging the chances of the NDC in the 2020 elections. He appeals to delegates to vote for him in other to be able to win the 2020 elections.

Commenting on the Nana Addo led NPP government’s performance, Mr Bagbin said the administration has failed Ghanaians, especially on the Free SHS and security of the nation.

He believes when elected as president of Ghana, the educational system will be better than its current state when the NPP government seems to be confusing both parents and students.

The second deputy speaker also disputed the fact that he hates former president Mahama and thus the reason he is contesting him.

He told the Morning Show host that his perceived beef with the former president was unfounded; he explained further that Mr. Mahama is aware of the false claims.

Mr Bagbin said he championed the agenda of no contestant to the former president until the sudden demise of the late president Mills.

He said his decision came after the former president on a number of occasions declared publicly that he is not going to contest and also when his brother and one of his sponsors Ibrahim Mahama publicly told media that the family would not support the candidature of the former president.

He appealed to the party faithful to come together and have a united party to wrestle power from the Nana Addo led failed government.
