NDC needs bold and courageous leadership – Bagbin

By on

An aspiring presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Alban Sumani Bagbin has called for calm in the party as they re-strategise ahead of the 2020 general elections.

He has, therefore, urged disgruntled members of the party to bury their differences and support anyone who is elected to lead the party in the next general elections. 
According to him, the party now needs bold, courageous leadership to be able to solve the problems confronted the nation. 
He added that, “Competition is the spirit of democracy and so wherever there is competition, it is a show of how competent or how better you are than your opponent. 
“This is the time you have to show commitment to the vision. And so whatever is happening in NDC should not discourage any persons; it is a family contest,” and assured the electorate that whoever is elected the parliamentary and presidential candidate, “they all have to give support to that person”. Mr Bagbin made the call when he addressed a mini-rally at Asawase in the Ashanti Region and also welcome members.
Mr Sumani Bagbin called for a united front, and encouraged members to rally behind the vision of the NDC to enable them regain power from the governing New Patriotic Party in the next election. 
Mr Bagbin, who also reiterated views held by many in the NDC that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) lied its way into power, advised politicians to stop what he described as “politics of deceit and lies”.
“We have one goal, and that goal is that in 2020, we must win the election.” Mr Bagbin said, “Politics is service to the people; if you deceive the people to win power, it is like pregnancy; tomorrow it is the lies that will lead to your downfall.” He, therefore, appealed to all in politics to let truth prevail. 
The Member of Parliament for the Sagnarigu Constituency, A.B.A. Fuseini, who also addressed the teeming NDC members, accused the governing party of continuously throwing dust into the eyes of the Ghanaian populace. Dignitaries present included the Member of Parliament for Odododiodioo, Nii Lante Vanderpuye; Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Sam George; Member of Parliament for Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak; Member of Parliament for Asawase, Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak; and other Members of Parliament from the Minority side.
