Former Minister of Power under NDC, Dr. Kwabena Donkor, has said he cannot tell for certain whether former president John Mahama, under whom he served as a minister, is the right person to lead the National Democratic Congress into the 2020 elections.
When asked on Tuesday, 27th November,2018 if he thought John Mahama was the best choice for NDC ahead of the 2020 polls, Dr Donkor told Accra-based Starr FM that: “I don’t know.”
He continued: “I don’t know because if with him we win 2020, he would have been the best choice. If we don’t win, it would have been a wrong choice”.
“There are people who think that he should be a kingmaker rather than a king. There are others who also think that he is the most marketable NDC candidate at the moment”, Dr.Donkor noted.
Mr. Mahama is being challenged former mayor of Kumasi Kojo Bonsu; former Minister of Trade and Industries Ekow Spio-Garbrah; former Greater Accra Regional Minister Prof Joshua Alabi; former CEO of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) Sylvester Mensah; former Central Regional Minister Kweku Ricketts-Hagan; former aide to Mr Jerry John Rawlings, Goosie Tanoh; Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin; legal practitioner Elikplim Agbemava; businessman Nurudeen Iddrisu and ‘the political electrician’ Stephen Atubiga.
