Forget Mahama, I’m the best person to lead NDC to win Election 2024 – Kojo Bonsu
Former Kumasi Mayor Kojo Bonsu believes the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) will have a better chance of winning the 2024 elections if someone like him is chosen as the party’s flagbearer.
He claims that if John Mahama is allowed to lead the party, his personality and image will be severely harmed once more.
Kojo Bonsu, commenting on the NDC’s chances with John Mahama as its flagbearer for the 2024 elections, said it will only take a candidate like him if the NDC is determined to retake power from the NPP administration because Mr Mahama is currently unfit for purpose.
Speaking On Citi TV, Mr. Bonsu contended that John Mahama’s reputation is now in shambles and that he will no longer be a marketable candidate for the NDC in the future.
He blamed the party in part for doing too little to clean up the mud on Mahama, which harmed the party’s political fortunes.
“I stand a better chance than Mahama because I have not been soiled, so that is where I come in. It’s so sad, he is a great gentleman, speaks very well, very affable, but he has been put in the mud so much. They have tagged him with corruption, women’s affairs, and we the NDC have not been able to defend it and get him out of it.”
“We should have redeemed him long ago, but he doesn’t have a chance now. Let’s bring in someone fresh so that the swing voters wouldn’t have anything to say against President Mahama. I stand a better chance than Mahama because I have not been soiled, so that is where I come in.”
“If the party had corrected this, we wouldn’t have come to this level. If we want to win the 2024 elections, I think let’s bring someone like me. I am eligible to do it. It’s not an issue of fighting Mahama, insulting the former President, or doing anything, but the situation we find ourselves in, let’s try someone new and see if it will work.”
