Defeated Flagbearer aspirant of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Alban Sumama Kingsford Bagbin has promised to work hard in order to make former President John Dramani President in 2020.
The Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament who was seen as a major threat to the Go4JM campaign with series of acerbic attacks at the least opportunity, revealed that elections are over and it was now time the party rallies behind the winner to succeed in 2020 general elections
He denied claims he nursed a personal hatred against Mahama revealing on Accra-based Citi Fm” We are politicians and you have to be in this game for some time to know that anything is possible. Particularly in African because there is so much uncertainty”
“And so, as you go round trying to show who is a better candidate you will definitely disagree with the other contestant… Anytime you disagree, people say you are a critic and sometimes they even say that it is an attack on the person but that is what democracy is about. That is what competition is about.
“But, at the end of the day he knows me very well and he has worked with me for a long time and he knows I don’t harbour ill-will or hatred and so he knew that what I only criticised to improve. So, he was quite receptive, we had a good chat and we know that with that culture we could do more for the party and this country”, he disclosed.
Nonetheless, he has vowed to vigorously campaign for Mahama with the ultimate aim of bringing back the NDC to power after the 2020 polls to improve on the governance.
“The ultimate aim is to get the NDC back to power in 2020 to try and improve on governance in Ghana. I called the former President and congratulated him and we had a chat on how to strategize to bring the NDC back to power. You will see me working very hard with JM to wrestle power from the NPP”, he promised.
