- An aspiring NDC flagbearer, Alban Bagbin, has revealed that some party members built mansions and bought cars in 4 years
- According to him, a majority of the party's foot soldiers were neglected when the party was in power
- He however promised to change that if he becomes NDC's flagbearer and then president of Ghana
The Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has described the neglect of the grassroots during the John-Mahama administration as improper.
Addressing constituency executives in the Volta regional town of Keta, he argued that the then government could have done more for the youth.
He explained that this contributed to the loss of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2016 general elections.
“The pillars that support you when you’re up there, are the pillars you have to fortify to continue to carry you up there when you weaken them, you fall. You cannot put something on nothing. We have to change”, he argued.
He went on to say that some people suddenly drew closer to Former President Mahama during his term of office.
According to him, they built mansions and purchased land cruisers in 4 years, and one often wonders where they had the resources from, as it was certainly not their salaries.
Bagbin further noted that the base of the party has been weakened, as the neglect of the supporters had pushed many of them of them away.
Calling for a change in the trend, he added that the hard work and sacrifices pf the party youth will be rewarded if he becomes the flagbearer of the party and the president of Ghana.
