“I have great respect for John Mahama, I have chalked successes with him but the issue is about democracy in the party and the future of the party because if Mahama is not there then who leads the party, so it’s not about him or anyone.

“Mahama and I are not enemies. Has he said no one should contest him,” he quizzed.

Kojo Bonsu’s decision to contest his former boss John Dramani Mahama has drawn a lot of criticisms from a lot of NDC stalwarts.
