Former Member of Parliament for La Dadekopotan Nii Amasah Namoale says some strong supporters of former President John Dramani Mahama, are against the statement issued by the ten (10) regional chairpersons of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to him, although it is the democratic right of the regional chairpersons to call on Mr. Mahama to consider contesting the 2020 presidential race, there are serious effects that will follow the statement.
The 10 regional chairpersons in a statement yesterday [Thursday], called on Mr. Mahama to consider representing the NDC in 2020.
But speaking on Rainbow Radio today [Friday], Nii Amasah Namoale said, he wouldn’t want to stress the issue for the sake of cohesion and unity of the party however, when you go on social media, the strong supporters of Mahama are against what the regional chairpersons did.
Nii Amasah Namoale previously expressed his interest to contest as presidential candidate but rescinded the decision because Prof. Joshua Alabi has expressed his interest to contest.
