Flagbearer aspirant of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Prof. Joshua Alabi says he is the only one to end the dream of a second four-year term by President Nana Akufo-Addo.
Therefore, Prof. Alabi wants NDC delegates to vote him to lead them into the 2020 presidential elections and take the party from opposition back to government.
“If you promote [vote] me as your flagbearer, by the grace of God I will give President Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo-Addo one term,” the former University for Professional Studies (UPS) Vice Chancellor spoke in the Akan dialect to delegates in the Eastern Region where he had been touring this week.
He was addressing the executives at separate meetings at Okere Constituency and New Juabeng South Constituencies of the NDC Tuesday, October 23.
He continued: “And after I give him one term, by the grace of God I will not be president for only one term [but] I will be President of the Republic of Ghana for two terms.”
Buoyed by the acknowledgments from the delegates in response to his message, Prof. Alabi then turned up the heat on President Akufo-Addo to begin to pack out of the Presidency (Jubilee House) the day he [Alabi] is pronounced winner of the NDC flagbearers race.
“The day he [President Akufo-Addo] will hear that I have won the flagbearer ship contest of the NDC, he will start packing his goods from the Flagstaff House [seat of government],” he fired.
Prof. Alabi on Monday, October 22, began a tour of the Eastern Region by speaking to the constituency and branch executives in Asuogyaman, Lower Manya, Upper Manya and Yillo Krobo constituencies.
