Failed presidential aspirant of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Dr. Ekwow Spio-Garbrah has shut down all his campaign social media handles, in a bid to channel his full support for John Mahama.
The former Trades Minister set up a number of social media handles during his own bid to become the NDC’s flagbearer.
However, he has now announced that he is shutting all the handles down in order to focus on supporting Mahama, who has been elected presidential candidate of the NDC.
In a statement, Dr. Spio-Garbrah said he is also closing down his campaign office located in the Airport Residential Area in Accra.
“I would like to announce to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) fraternity and the good people of Ghana that following the recent election of John Dramani Mahama to lead the NDC, I have taken a decision to wrap up and close all operations at my campaign office located in the Airport Residential Area.
“This decision is also to allow me to faithfully support our party’s elected candidate, H. E. John Mahama, to wrestle power from the Akufo-Addo-led government.
“By this decision, all Social Media pages promoting the Spio-Garbrah “Forward agenda” and all groupings in the fold of the NDC that worked and campaigned for me are hereby directed to cease operations and abide by our collective decision to support Ex-President Mahama and the NDC agenda.”
He further called on the rank and file of the NDC to unite, adding that with dedication and hard work, the party will return to power in 2020.
“The battle ahead is by no means an easy one, and we must forge ahead in the spirit of unity, dedication and camaraderie – virtues espoused and championed by our great party. With oneness of purpose and dedication, we can achieve our goal,” Dr. Spio-Garbrah added.
Mahama became the NDC’s presidential aspirant-elect after beating off competition from six other candidates.
He was endorsed by over 200,000 delegates of the NDC during last Saturday’s presidential primaries held at the various constituencies across the country.
The ex-president polled a whopping 213,487 votes, representing 95.23% of the total votes cast.
The other contestants – Prof. Joshua Alabi, Alban Bagbin, Goosie Tanoh, Dr. Ekwow Spio Garbrah, Sylvester Mensah and Nurudeen Iddrisu – had 5% of the total votes combined.
