National Organiser of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams, has downplayed the decision by five presidential aspirants in the party to work against the chances of former President John Dramani Mahama.
Mr Adams believes the contenders lack the political gravitas to do any damage to Mr Mahama’s bid.
“I laugh sometimes when I hear people saying Mahama is not capable of winning the flag-bearership slot. And I hear some aspirants are ganging up against him. In fact, you lack the strength to compete for yourselves, how much more joining forces to beat Mahama. Do they even have that strength,” he quizzed while speaking on Okay FM in Accra.
It was reported that five (5) NDC flag-bearer hopefuls had held a meeting with the objective of ensuring that John Mahama is not selected as NDC’s flag-bearer.
The five, all of whom have expressed interest in leading the NDC in the 2020 election, are Mr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, Goosie Tanoh, Sylvester Mensah, Alban Sumana Bagbin and Kweku Ricketts-Hagan.
Two others, Stephen Atubiga, and Professor Joshua Alabi, were, however, not present.
However, Mr Adams was of the view that Mr Mahama remains the most sellable candidate.
“John Mahama will win hands down, the race to lead the party, and proceed to beat President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in the 2020 elections to make history. Mahama is best, I will say it again and again, he is the best,” Mr Adam stated.
