Akpaloo revealed that John Mahama, who was a president of Ghana hailing from the Bole in the Northern Region, did not impress Ghanaians and left a bad impression on the electorate.

He believed that the voting community in Ghana would not have trust in any Northerner to deliver again as president of the nation.

The presidential hopeful was speaking of names that have popped up in the National Democratic Congress political party for the flagbearship position ahead of the 2020 elections.

John Mahama, Haruna Iddrisu and Alban Bagbin are some of the names that have popped up in relation to the flagbearship position.

But, Akpaloo stated that the mentioned persons would not help NDC win back power as they were all Northerners.

He said, "Kwame, no northerner will become president again..at least not in the immediate future or the next twenty to thirty years."

"This is a very bitter truth, but I have said it now. John Mahama got the chance to make a case for the Northerners yet he scattered it with corruption and incompetence."

He continued to state that Alban, who only recently declared his intention to run for the presidency, can never be the president of Ghana.

"I met Alban Bagbin in Ireland where he delivered a paper on politics and governance…Kwame, Bagbin’s presentation was a total indictment on Ghanaians and to some extent, Africans and I immediately said to myself this man can never be a president with such a mentality," he revealed.
