Delegates of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have been urged to put party interest above their individual interests in their selection of who leads the party into 2020 elections.
Flagbearer aspirant, Dr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah has said the party is at a cross-roads and needs a winnable candidate to save it from political oblivion.
In his view, the image of the party after the 2016 general elections has been badly dented thus needs a candidate who has the gravitas to rebrand it.
“The people of Ghana are concerned about the reputation of politicians so the NDC needs a fresh face to lead it in 2020,” he stated on Adom FM’s morning show Dwaso Nsem Thursday.
He indicated that the era where NDC delegates vote for a candidate because they are the most-liked or marketed should be a thing of the past.
“NDC delegates must not vote for who they like but who Ghanaians will buy because our performance in 2016 was the worst in Ghana’s history and we need someone to change it,” he opined.
Dr Spio Garbrah is of the view that the party needs a leader “who cannot be smeared with allegations of corruption or incompetence” to win power from the NPP, going into the 2020 general elections.
