- Mr Bagbin was at the laying-in-state for the late former vice president, Amissah-Arthur on Thursday
- The deputy speaker of the House is thought to have presidential ambitions
The Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin has criticised what he claims is the lack of leadership in the National Democratic Congress (NDC). Mr Bagbin believes the death of Former Vice President Kwesi Bekoe Amissah-Arthur should have united the party.
Alban Bagbin was at the laying-in-state for the late former vice-president. He said he wished the NDC would have take advantage of the death of its leading member to unite the party.
He said, according to Myjoyonline.com: “…as at now we should have seen the party together attending the funeral arrangements but I haven’t seen that yet. It’s just various organisations and groupings coming and going, I haven’t seen any call from the party for us to regroup and do things.”
He further lamented that the party had not made any arrangements for what the members should do after the funeral. He was unhappy with the factionalism within the party.
The Nadowli-Kaleo MP added that the NDC is losing the good leadership it was noted for in time past. He said it was his fervent hope that order will be restored.
He argued that the recent crop of the party is cut in pieces and owing to the visionary leadership that has been lost. Many expect him to contest for the flagbearer position for the elections in 2020.
