Alban Bagbin for president in 2020?

The second deputy speaker of parliament, Alban Bagbin, appears to be throwing his hat into the ring for the 2020 presidential election.

Before that, the member of parliament for Nadowli West will first have to contest the presidential primaries of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

And Bagbin is giving indication that he may well contest that election.

In a interaction with the media in the Upper West Region, the 59-year-old said people should not be surprised if he decided to contest.

According to him, it has been a life-long dream for him to be president.

“Won’t you be happy if I contest,” he responded to a question that sought his interest in the position.

“But for me, if you even ask my teacher M.A Seidu he will tell you that my dream from childhood has been to become a president, so people won’t be surprised, but you will be happy to see me contest the presidency," he added.
