As the race for a winnable candidate to bear the flag of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the upcoming congress in Sunyani, a National vice chairperson of the party Alahaji Said Sinare, has predicted a seventy percent victory for the incumbent president and leader of the NDC.

He said his own survey and opinion polls places President Mills in a pole position to lead the party to victory again in the 2012 election presidential elections. According to him it will be disastrous for the NDC if President Mills is substituted for any other candidate.

The battle of who leads the NDC has seen two vice chairpersons of the party, former first lady Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings and Dr. Ekow Spio Garbrah resigning their positions and had picked up nomination forms to contest the sitting president for the July 9th congress in Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo region.

But Alhaji Said Sinare tells Gold News, it will be in the interest of Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings to annul her decision and rally behind the president for a decisive victory against the New Patriotic Party (NDC) in 2012.

A national vice chairperson of the NDC Alhaji Said Sinare urged the Rawlins’s to be careful not to trade their hard won credibility and integrity for a fruitless effort that has the credibility of loosing respect in the eyes of the general public.

‘’President Mills should be left alone; there is no need to change the driver. It’s just not ideal and politically strategic to change the party’s leader now’’. Sinare said.

The former Member of Parliament for the Ayawaso Central Constituency maintained that, most members of the NDC including members of the general public were of the view that it will be ‘’politically catastrophic to change a leader who is on course to making Ghana a better place.

Alhaji Sinare indicated that ‘’it will be much, much better for her not to contest, it’s just not a good starter’’.

He said, the candidate to win at congress should win with at least 70% to send a signal to the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) that 2012 is a done deal for Professor John Evans Atta Mills.

‘’I hate to say this but I have to say it, I am an NDC, I eat NDC and a principled man and believe in the truth, I tell you what! Nana Konadu can’t win congress or National elections it’s just not her time’’. Alhaji Said Sinare said. A vice Chair of the NDC was however quick to call on all the candidates to hold and embrace and rally behind the winner for a decisive victory in 2012. He urged all party faithful to remain patient and support the President for success. ‘’Allah is always with those who are patient.

He said, it will be sad to see President Mills win the July Congress without the Rawlins’s on the campaign trail or should the NDC go into the National elections in 2012 and win, ‘’ it will be disastrous for the former first family’’. Alhaji Sinare, admonished the Rawlins’s to rescind their decision and the advised the President of the 31st December women’s movement to back to safeguard the family’s hard won integrity and credibility.

He was of the view that thought President can’t employ everybody at a time he is very optimistic that there is light at the end of the tunnel.

‘’President Mills and the NDC government are working very hard to achieve the objective of building a better place for all. His good works can be seen across the length and breadth of the country. He is the man to lead the NDC to the Promised Land’’.
