“ I can’t wait for what am hearing out there to be a reality, As to JDM coming back to contest others and myself this Congress to lead NDC. I have news for JDM and Ibrahim Mahama. I will give them a run for their money. I will match them boot to boot, dollar to dollar, cedi to cedi, Euros to Euros”, he stated.
He promised to give the former President and his brother Ibrahim Mahama a run for their money expressing optimism in leading at the close of polls.
Below is the comment he posted on his wall.
“Interesting days ahead. Lots of strange posters /names are popping out for NDC presidential race. Wow, I welcome them all on board. Especially my respectable former Veep. I hope they can handle the heat when the whistle is blown .
The quest to lead NDC and Ghana as a nation demands strength in taking firm and strategic decisions ,Thinking outside the box , A team player, And respecting the structural structure s that gave you the opportunity to leadership of NDC .(examples are grassroots, foot soldiers, businessmen and women, steak holder, and more)
People could not manage or run some sectors entrusted to them, And want to be Presidents or Veeps . Are you kidding me? Do they know what is takes to run a country like Ghana? Especially moving this country forward and creating jobs. How many people did you help or support when you got an appointment? How many towns and villages did you visit when you were in office? What was your contributions to the NDC /president physically and financially towards this our past ( past defeated election)? People should be bold and ready on their own to lead , Not to be pushed and promoted by others for their own interest .
I can’t wait for what am hearing out there to be a reality , As to JDM coming back to contest others and myself this Congress to lead NDC. I have news for JDM and Ibrahim Mahama.I will give them a run for their money. I will match them boot to boot, dollar to dollar, cedi to cedi, Euros to Euros,
I hope the NDC will give us an early Congress in the interest of the party. Time will”.
