The race for Flagbearership in the NDC for the next elections has generated dialogue among Ghanaians in recent times.
Many are of the view that after the "dissappointing performance" by former President John Mahama during his term in office, a new leader should be at the helm of affairs for the next elections in 2020.
Some names including those of the past Vice Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies, Prof. Joshua Alabi; former Chief Executive Officer of the National Health Insurance Authority, Mr. Sylvester Mensah, and the immediate past Chief of Staff, Mr. Julius Debrah, have emerged as possible names of candidates for the race, the latest being former Majority leader and current 2nd Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin.
