A leading Flagbearer hopeful of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin, continues to win hearts within the party with his pro-party executive campaign message.
His promise to depart from previous leadership styles that alienated executives of the party has caught on in the Volta Region too.
Executives of the NDC in Southern Volta have joined their Greater Accra, Ashanti and Western Region counterparts to welcome the ‘Bagbin-Way’.
This came to light during a meeting of party members at Keta on Wednesday, where Mr Bagbin was hailed and endorsed as the NDC’s best choice for 2020, while former President Rawlings was also singled out for praise for his contributions over the years.
Mr Christopher Mensah, NDC branch chairman in the Keta constituency said: “It is a well-known fact that Mr Bagbin is incorruptible and therefore in the 2020 election, he would be the obvious choice for many Ghanaians.”
He said Mr Bagbin was becoming acceptable in the rank and file of the party, not only because of his rich political history and career, but on account of his promise to carry every member along, if he got the slot.
“Like Mr Bagbin himself has said, those who got the opportunity to go to Flagstaff House through the party’s ticket and then turned round to justify their alienation of the party, forgot that it was politics that took them there in the first place.
Infact Mr Bagbin and former President Rawlings have over the years helped the NDC in diverse ways and deserve to be hailed by the rank and file”.
Mr Wisdom Kukubor, executive member in Ketu South said, “Mr Bagbin is perfectly cut for 2020 because as a Northerner, he would pick up from where President Mahama, another Northerner left off.
He said Mr Bagbin and former President Rawlings enjoyed a lot of support in the Volta Region because of their good works.
