An aspiring presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), who doubles as the 2nd Deputy Speaker of Parliament and the Member of Parliament for Nadowli West, Alban Sumani Kingsford Bagbin has said whether he wins the 2020 elections as president or not he will work for the development of democracy in Ghana.
According to Hon. Bagbin, he believes that there is hope for the NDC despite suffering a heavy defeat in the 2016 general elections.
The member of Parliament for Nadowli West continued “The way things went, particularly getting to the last two years of the NDC government any elderly person see afar that we were likely to lose the election and so some of us were not shocked because it seems we had erred in so many ways and so we have learnt our lessons and I believe that what his Excellency the former President did was the right thing being the leader to accept that it was because of his leadership that we lost”.
”We have also done a scientific research on why we lost and that is why the Dr. Kwesi Botwe Committee did for the party and learning from those lessons, we are now improving on how to reorganize, revitalize, rebrand and recapture power and so 2020 is a “do and die matter I can tell you and I want to repeat we will win 2020”.
”And winning 2020 will mean a lot not just for NDC but for mother Ghana”
He made this known when the Governance and Leadership Excellence Awards board, presented a citation of good leadership and governance to the Parliament of Ghana.
