Ghanaian actor, Prince David Osei, is not happy about former president John Dramani Mahama’s candidature as flag-bearer for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Speaking in an interview with ZionFelix on the Uncut Show, Prince stated that it is an insult to the nation for the NDC to choose Mahama to lead them in the forthcoming 2020 general elections.
The actor did not see the need for the party to bring him back after he has served a term.

He also revealed he would have rooted for any other person chosen by the NDC.
Prince David further assumed there is a problem with the leadership in the NDC since they have not proven that someone else could have been selected instead of ex-president, John Mahama.
He queried if there is no better person in the National Democratic Congress apart from him.
The well-known actor added that Mahama should have blessed someone to take the baton from him and thank Ghanaians in the name of statesmanship.
