The Member of Parliament for Keta, Mr Richard Quashigah has said Minority Members of Parliament are being compelled to endorse former President John Dramani Mahama as the flagbearer of the NDC for Election 2020.
The Member of Parliament for Odododiodio, Nii Lante Vanderpuye on Tuesday hinted that out of the 106 National Democratic Congress (NDC) Minority MPs, a total of 94 have endorsed Mr John Mahama’s candidature for 2020.
Nii Vanderpuye said John Mahama is the only candidate who can lead the party to victory in 2020.
However, in a radio interview with Accra based Joy FM Tuesday evening, MrQuashigah expressed doubts about the number 94 being quoted by his colleagues as the number of Members from the Minority side who have endorsed Mr Mahama’s candidature.
“I must say that as of Thursday when the list was handed over to me, in the Volta Region only six Members of Parliament [out of 25 MPs from Volta region] had signed up. I can say for a fact that indeed we have Members of Parliament from the Minority side who have signed up for the document,” but he said many of them have indicated to him they were reluctant but they were compelled to do so.
