A Presidential Aspirant of the National Democratic Congress Party (NDC), Mr. Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, has in recent statement suggested that former President John Dramani Mahama is not good enough to lead the party to victory, come 2020.
According to him, Mr. Mahama in the past had been dented with both an “incompetence” and “corruption” tag―the very label that plunged the NDC to defeat in during the 2016 elections.
Speaking on Accra based TV3, yesterday, Mr. Spio-Garbrah said the delegates of the party do not want a leader who has the tendency of being called corrupt or incompetent.
“We lost the 2016 elections and now the party is reflecting on its losses…the delegates when I asked them what were the reason we lost the elections say…we were accused of being incompetent by NPP and we were also accused by NPP for being corrupt.
“So, I asked them what is the solution to that and they say we must make an effort to find a candidate who is neither corrupt nor someone who can be deemed to be incompetent,” he explained.
