According to the former NHIS boss, he is still consulting some big shots in the National Democratic Congress (NDC), and will make right decisions before the party opens nominations into the 2020 election.
Speaking in a media interview today, the one-term La-Dadekotopon MP insisted he hopes to “walk into the Flagstaff House” one day if the NDC finds him worthy of occupying the high office.
“There have been a number of calls on me to consider the high office. I guess if the appeal crystalizes with the general demands and expectations I will go for it,” he confirmed in an interview.

“We have a party that is above all. I guess that the mistake we do as individuals is that we think we can carry the party into power. It is the party which carries one into power”, he pointed out.
He stressed that, when given the nod to lead NDC into 2020 elections, he will bring on board “long years of experience, managerial expertise and bring vision and competence to the party.”
There have been several names as possible candidates to lead the NDC into election 2020 after President John Mahama lost the 2016 elections in a humiliating defeat to the NPP.
