Flagbearer hopeful of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Prof. Joshua Alabi has affirmed that he will ride on the corporate legacies of his party to win power for the NDC and not by the successes chalked by any individual.

There have been suggestions from the rank and file of the party for the likes of Prof. Joshua Alabi and other opponents fighting with the former leader in the upcoming flagbearership race, to allow him (John Mahama) to lead the party again.

According to them, it makes no sense selling aspirants that have no records whatsoever in that capacity to Ghanaians rather than a tried and tested leader, who the party can campaign on his past achievements to win the hearts of Ghanaians in 2020 polls.

Prof. Alabi maintained that the goodwill of his party together with his vision will bring the additional 50 per cent plus 1 votes required to win the next elections for the party.

“The NDC from old has built its automatic 45 per cent electoral votes based on the goodwill of the party, for many years so any flagbearer is just using the goodwill of the party to campaign.
“I am going to use the NDC as a party and the good will it has obtained and not any individual’s achievement or whatsoever.
“It’s unfortunate that this benchmark dropped in the last years but I’ll work hard to secure the 45 per cent and the additional 5 per cent plus 1 votes to win elections for my party,” Prof Alabi stated.

The retired Vice-Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies, Accra, who’s confident of winning the primaries said his inclusion in the contest will be “a thriller in the history of our great party (NDC).”

Prof. Joshua Alabi, will face competition from Alban Bagbin, Sylvester Mensah, Ekow Spio-Garbrah and ex-President Mahama who has given the green light to contest the flagbearer slot for the NDC recently. –kasapafmonline.com
