NDC Presidential Race: Ade Coker reveals why Kojo Bonsu stepped down
Mr Ade Coker, Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), says Kojo Bonsu does not have what it takes to contest in the flagbearership race of the party.
According to him, Kojo Bonsu lacks "strong ribs" and that was why he pulled out of the race.
Speaking on The Big Issue, Saturday, Mr. Ade Coker said “if you are going to go into a contest, you should have strong ribs. Strong, strong ribs. It is an indication that his ribs are not strong….Ask the boxers, when you don’t have a strong rib and they give you a punch, just one small punch, you are down...the ribs connote everything”.
Kojo Bonsu on Saturday announced his withdrawal from the NDC flagbearership race.
In a statement, Mr Bonsu said the decision to opt out of the race is as a result of “considerable deliberation and reflection.”
"However, my boundless optimism for the long-term future of the NDC and Ghana at large remains steadfast. The fight is far from over, I am not ending the fight for unity and accountability and I am not ending the fight for victory for the NDC" he added.
Mr Bonsu joins lawyer Elikplim Lorlormavor Agbemava who has also dropped out of the race.
