‘I’m in the race’ – Alabi writes to NDC

256views

A former Vice-Chancellor of the University for Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), Professor Joshua Alabi has officially written to the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to announce his intention to run for president on the party’s ticket.

Some party stalwarts have already thrown their weight behind Prof Alabi. Ambassador James Victor Gbeho, former Deputy Speaker Ken Dzirasah and Keta MP Richard Quahsigah, for example have called on members of the party and its grassroots, to support Prof. Alabi to become the next flag bearer of the party.

The NDC has set 7 December 2018 for its presidential primaries ahead of the 2020 polls.

This was announced by General Secretary Johnson Aseidu Nketia at a press conference in Accra on Thursday, 2 August 2018.

Mr Nketia, who said the date is in line with the party’s constitution, explained that: “We have taken note of our constitutional requirement to choose our flag bearer 24 months before the next elections and the constitution, not having been amended yet, we can safely calculate our timelines from 7th December 2020, so that will bring us back to 7th of December 2018 for a choice to be made on who leads our party into the next general elections.

“Ordinarily, we would have concluded all the internal elections before opening the space for campaigning and declaration of intentions, but we realise that if we are to wait till we finish our elections by September, the time will be short for some aspirants, so on behalf of the national executive committee and on my own behalf as the Chief Executive of NDC, I wish to declare the campaign period for our presidential primaries officially opened with immediate effect.”

Mr Nketia, has directed all hopefuls to first inform the party of their intention to contest before campaigning.

He also warned the would-be aspirants to be wary of the comments they pass during the campaign and to be modest.
