A former National Communication Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Solomon Nkansah has cautioned party members against openly supporting John Dramani Mahama as flagbearer for the party ahead of the 2024 polls.
Speaking on Okay FM, he insisted the party is still trying to reorganize after the 2020 election defeat and therefore some members may have unresolved issues.
“As we speak, we are not in a Presidential Primaries; we are in the process of the party’s reorganization and primaries at the party level and so as a former national executive officer hoping to contest again, if you ask me that who should be the Presidential Candidate for the NDC and I mention a name, I am destroying the party in the sense of unity and the progress of the party,” he argued
“…if we want to approach everyone in the party and be able to go their houses, we should be circumspect about some of the things we say publicly… if John Mahama becomes the NDC Flagbearer today which is about 90 per cent sure if he decides to, it will be difficult for anyone who will contest him…but I want to be able to approach every member of the NDC who has issues within the party and so I don’t have to openly and publicly declare my support for Mahama,” he explained.
“That open declaration of support for John Mahama will affect the party, and that is our inability to tolerate divergent views. When you stand as a unifier, you will suffer vilification but you should not worry,” he encouraged himself.
