Presidential hopeful, Stephen Atugiba has described as ‘sycophants’ the 10 Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) who have endorsed former President John Mahama.
According to him, their action is borne out of their resolve to stay in power to continue milking the merger resources of the party.
10 NDC Regional Chairmen on Thursday, November 9, 2017 appealed to Mr. Mahama to consider calls on him to contest the flagbearership position of the NDC.
Led by Central Regional Chairman, Bernard Allotey Jacobs, they urged him to consider the requests of the teeming supporters” and lead the party into contest in the next elections.
But their action has been condemned by political pundits and some NDC members who believe it is politically suicidal.
