- Top ranking NDC member, Julius Debrah, has allegedly 'disowned' Mahama for Alban Bagbin
- The former Chief of Staff is said to have described Alban Bagbin as a great leader for the NDC
A close confidant of Former President John Mahama, Julius Debrah, in a subtly way has thrown his support behind the National Democratic Congress (NDC), presidential hopeful, Alban Bagbin.
According to a Todaygh.com report, the former Chief of Staff under the erstwhile Mahama administration, has declared his full support for the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament ahead of the NDC presidential primaries.
Alban Bagbin who called on Julius Debrah on Thursday to commiserate with him on the death of his mother was said to have received huge admiration and welcome from the former Chief of Staff.
Julies Debrah who is noted to be a close ally of Former President Mahama in a meeting with Bagbin allegedly switched focus to pledge his support for Alban Bagbin.
Further reports reveal that Mr Debrah during the meeting described Alban Bagbin, as a man of exceptional leadership qualities.
“Mr Bagbin is a great leader, he is a man who seldom talks, but when he does, he speaks the unpalatable truth,” Mr Debrah said.
He also added that, “Mr Bagbin is a man who belongs among the greats. I consulted him many times when I was Chief of Staff, because he is like an elder brother to me. This is the man who encouraged me a lot when I was in the Eastern region, rallied a lot of support for me and pushed for my elevation within the party.”
Mr Debrah is not the only NDC stalwart to have seen Mr Bagbin as a ‘saviour’ for the NDC party ahead of 2020 general elections.
It could be recalled that a former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice under the Mills administration, Betty Mould Iddrisu last year at an NDC gathering in Tema declared her support for Mr Bagbin, describing him as presidential material.
According to Betty Mould Iddrisu, who doubles as the National Vice Chairperson of the NDC, Mr Bagbin is a seasoned lawyer with vast experience in governance and politics who will be NDC’s surest bid in the 202 election.
Mr Bagbin who confirmed the warm relations with Julius Debrah, assured him of his support towards the funeral rites of his late mother.
A number of top ranking members of the NDC including, Alban Bagbin, Pro. Joshua Alabi, Sylvester Mensah and others have declared their intention to contest Former President Mahama in the next NDC flagbearership race.
