Some Constituency Executives of the Tema East branch of the opposition NDC, led by Stephen Ashitey Adjei aka Moshake have thrown their weight behind Mr Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin to win the Party’s flagbearership race
The officials touted the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament as the true choice of the people and urged other delegates who support him secretly, to come out and declare their stance.
“Even our opponents in the NPP acknowledge that our best asset for 2020 is Mr Bagbin. Within our party too, the majority of delegates acknowledge this.
“However, there are many pro-Bagbin delegates and executives who have kept their allegiance private and we want to assure them that if they wish to come out like some of us have done, they will have our support,” Moshake said at a news conference held in Accra.
The conference was held to boost morale of all Bagbin fans and admirers towards the Nadowli-Kaleo MP’s flagbearership campaign.
“I will urge every executive who is given free money to oppose Mr Bagbin’s candidature in the media to take it because times are hard, but at the end of the day, such an acceptance of cash will only be bad if you allow it to influence your decision to vote,” Moshake said.
The event also sought to celebrate late President Mills, whose incorruptibility and forthrightness, they claimed was being branded by Bagbin.
Another executive Philip Yankey said the supporters of Bagbin who were still in the closet were free to choose to remain in the shadows, but pleaded with them not change their minds about voting for Bagbin.
He stressed that six, out of the ten former Chairmen who endorsed former President John Dramani Mahama in 2017 were voted out of office and it was an indication that most NDC charges were yearning for a change in the forthcoming Presidential primaries .
Mr Amarh Evans, the Deputy constituency organizer said, “A.S.K Bagbin has been minority leader for two terms and the whole NDC was full of praise for his excellent performance, when he became the majority leader, Health Minister and Water Resources Minister.
He said Ghanaians saw how he worked perfectly with President Mills to build Nursing Training schools and Regional hospitals with modern facilities, how he managed to solve Ghana’s water shortage problems among many other things,
“In fact, we have decided to celebrate Mr Bagbin and Late President Mills because of their good works.”
