- Amasah Namoale asked delegates to take into consideration that Mahama can be president for only one more term
- Namoale is the campaign aide to a flagbearer aspirant, Prof Joshua Alabi
The former Member of Parliament (MP) for La Dade Kotopon, Mr Nii Amasah Namoale, has explained that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will be mistaken to vote for John Mahama to lead the party in the general elections of 2020.
Mr Namoale is the campaign aide to another aspiring flagbearer of the NDC, Prof Joshua Alabi. Together with about 10 more, Prof Alabi has written to the party expressing his intentions of contesting the flagbearer position in December this year.
As reported by Mynewsgh.com, Mr Namoale was speaking in an interview with Kumasi-based Hello FM.
The former MP reportedly said: “When you vote for Professor Joshua Alabi, NDC will be in power for eight years. He is not going to be a one-term president like former President John Dramani Mahama.”
Mr Namoale also tried to explain why John Mahama lost in 2016. According to him, Mahama “only campaigned on his legacy without telling Ghanaians his vision for the country hence his defeat to Nana Addo in the 2016 polls."
Nii Amasah Namoale has for the last few years been a vocal critic of John Mahama.
Dating back to the days of the first Mahama administration, the campaign aide to Prof Alabi retorted several times before the elections of 2016 that a defeat of the NDC would not be surprising.
