Join forces with Mahama to kick NPP out - Ofosu Ampofo to defeated aspirants

National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has called on all six defeated flagbearer aspirants of the party to come together and work with former President John Dramani Mahama for a win in 2020.

The National Chairman made this call when he met with all seven candidates who contested for the party’s flagbearership position last week to strategise ahead of the 2020 elections.

Speaking to the six defeated aspirants, Mr. Ofosu Ampofo said the time has come for the aspirants to join forces with the current flagbearer, John Mahama.

He said: “We believe that you’re major stakeholders of the party, your contribution to our forward march will be very critical because you bring diverse experience and input into the work of the party. We want to appreciate you and to assure you that as we move forward towards 2020 in our campaign, we have a place for everybody and a role for everybody to play so that together we work assiduously and capture power from the NPP."

“I want to commend all of you and to assure you that we will work hand in gloves with you and support our flagbearer to deliver a massive victory for the NDC come December 2020. We believe that by the 7th of January 2021, this country will be swearing in a new president and that new President will be no other president than His Excellency John Mahama”, he added.

Speaking on behalf of the other defeated aspirants, Prof. Joshua Alabi pledged to support the cause and make sure Mahama captures power in 2020.

He noted: “In this case our objective is 2020 and I strongly believe that with what we’ve just started, we’re getting ready and very soon we shall be ready to move out there to start work and make sure we take power from the NPP. I’m very confident 2020 is for us but then we have a lot of work to do."
