Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin is an indispensable asset to the opposite NDC and deserves respect and support from the party, Women Organisers of the NDC in the Western Region have said.
The women ‘Akatamansonians’, mainly made up of branch Women Organisers have asserted that the Nadowli Kaleo MP and Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament is a worthy Presidential material.
“Bagbin is a great politician and a thoroughbred we the ‘Akatamansonian’ can vest our future in,” Madam Gladys Agyiri, the Women Organiser for Tarkwa Nsuaem said.
Speaking at a meeting in Tarkwa over the weekend, Gladys Agyiri and the rest of the Women Organisers welcomed Mr Bagbin’s promise to make party executives benefit under his leadership.
She said as a thoroughbred party woman herself, who is unshakable in her faithfulness to the NDC, and thus could identify well with Mr Bagbin.
Gladys Agyiri, who is currently, preparing to contest for the position of Regional Women Organiser for Western Region is one of the financier of the recent Unity Walk in the region.
“Honourable Bagbin is a great politician indeed, and it shows openly; this is the MP who has been able to maintain the Nadowli Kaleo seat for us since he became MP in 1993, this shows he has his house in order.
“It also shows that he has good interpersonal skills that win people over,” the unsung heroin of the party added.
The Tarkwa Nsuaem NDC Constituency Women Organiser explained that, what has made many party executives fall in love with Mr Bagbin was his straight forward promise to make executives of the party benefit from his leadership if he was elected Flagbearer.
“I experienced first-hand, the neglect by our own National Organiser, who knew our contributions to the party, but when my husband died, not even a phone call from the National Organiser, it was the National Chairman, Dr Kofi Portuphy, who came to the funeral and showed love.
“As a businesswoman, my source of livelihood has become a target for this current administration which is doing everything to collapse my business, but I say I do not care, because NDC runs in my very blood and I am prepared to die for my party.”
She decried the neglect that party executives suffered under their own government saying those who had suffered the most were the branch executives.
According to her, she mostly encountered the branch executives at functions where they vented their frustrations.
Madam Agyiri blamed the neglect many suffered on the likes of current National Organiser, Kofi Adams, saying she hoped the bitter defeat that the NDC suffered in the 2016 election had taught everyone a good lesson.
Responding to why she helped organise the Western Regional Unity Walk even though it was under John Mahama’s Presidency that she suffered neglect, she said she did so out of her faithfulness to her party and it was a thing she will never regretted.
She however advised that the neglect must cease going forward.
Mrs Evelyn Cobbinah, Women Organiser for Tamso Compound “A” said Mr Bagbin is a great politician who is humble, very respectful and deserves to be Flagbearer, anyone who doesn’t know Mr Bagbin is a novice in politics”.
