Former President John Dramani Mahama is the most marketed person in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at the moment to lead the NDC into the next general elections, Member of Parliament for Buem, Kofi Adams has said.
He asked all persons who have ambition of being the flagbearer in the 2024 general elections to accept the fact that Mr Mahama’s name resonates with the people by reason that he has been a sitting president and also presidential candidate for the NDC in past elections.
Speaking on the Key Points with Dzifa Bampoh on TV3 Saturday June 11, he asked persons not to accuse leadership of the party of bias if Mr Mahama receives loud applause at NDC events and other functions because, in his view, people recognize him more than any other person in the party.
Even if he attends an event and people don’t see him, they can recognize him by his voice, Mr Adams said while advising that “people must accept to live with this.”
He was speaking on the 30th anniversary celebration of the NDC marked on Friday 10th June.
Mr Adams further asked all party members to work and explain to new members what the NDC stands for. The former Deputy General Secretary of the party said “we have a bigger responsibility to let people know who we are. We can only do so if all of us will identify with the party.”
He added “We can’t leave that to the flagbearer, the National Chairman, General Secretary, communicators, but all of us.”
