The Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament and MP for Nadowli/Kaleo Constituency, in the Upper West Region, and NDC flagbearer hopeful Alban Sumani Kingsford Bagbin has given an assurance that his administration shall make sure all active party persons play a key role in government come 2021.
Interacting with hundreds of NDC Constituency Executives, Founding fathers, Zongo Caucus, Chiefs and other party loyalists as part of his Region tour to campaign in The Volta Region, the longest serving Member of Parliament since 1993, stated that, he shall make all the Constituency Chairpersons Metropolitan, Municipal or District Chief Executives if The NDC wins power 2020 with him as President.
According to him, “all the current Regional Chairpersons are potential Regional Ministers, this is possible, it can come be done under my leadership”.
Mr. Bagbin, a Lawyer by profession proposed a constitutional amendment to make The National Chairman of The party, The Leader of The Party not the current practice where The sitting President is The leader of The party. The Regional Chairman must be made the leader of The Party at the Regional level as well as the Constituency Chairperson, The Leader of The Party at The Local level.
He said, we must give power to our people for better administration of The Party as separate entity….. “You cannot make your son the leader of the family if you are still alive”, he stressed.
“When you give me power, I shall empower you to continue to give me power to create opportunities, jobs and reduce poverty in Ghana”.
Alban Sumani Kingsford Bagbin, ASK BAGBIN for short entreated delegates to welcome and listen to all other aspirants, but they must vote wisely. He however, asked them to vote for him in the upcoming delegates’ congress to elect The Flagbearer slated for December, 7th 2020 Presidential election.
