The National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) says he will be leading a campaign to ensure President John Mahama is made candidate for election 2020.
In his view, the outgoing president is the NDC’s sure bet for power in the 2020 general elections.
Kofi Adams who was the ruling party’s Campaign Coordinator for the 2016 elections revealed that, he would lead a group to force President Mahama to contest should he decide to back out.
A lot of people in the NDC are lacing their boots to contest the NDC’s primaries ahead of the 2020 elections.
Given their performance in the just ended elections, many in the ruling party believe President Mahama as candidate will spell doom for the party.
But Kofi Adams on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Tuesday maintained that, no one is better place to lead the party in 2020 than President Mahama.
He stated unequivocally that, it is premature for people to urge the President to give up his ambition to contest again for the presidency.
“If he decides not to run for elections, I will be disappointed…I will mobilise people against that,” the NDC National Organizer stressed.
Kofi Adams is confident with the right strategy and message, the NDC will win the 2020 elections.
