National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) flagbearer aspirant, Joshua Alabi, says he remains hopeful of emerging the winner in the upcoming presidential primaries of his party.
Professor Joshua Alabi is one of the eight candidates seeking to lead the NDC into in Ghana’s 2020 general elections.
Speaking on Adom TV’s Badwam show, Professor Alabi explained that his works and experience, over the years, will speak for him ahead of his victory at the primaries.
“The indicators and signals are clear that it’s my time and my term and I am ready for the time. I have much experience in diverse fields including farming, sports management and education. In politics, I have been an MP, Regional Minister in Accra and the Northern, Chairman of the reorganization of NDC after we lost in 2001,” he touted.
Professor Alabi added that a victory in the election was not dependent on the popularity of a candidate because that only counts for propaganda.
“People are marketing and endorsing someone for popularity but the person himself has never said so. This election is not about popularity because this popularity that gave us victory in 2012 caused us to spend almost 8 months in court, and we eventually lost in 2016,” he said.
According to him, the NDC is ready for victory in 2020 looking at the aspirants contesting for the primaries.

Mr Alabi said the NDC has done a lot of works to correct what led to their loss in 2016, adding “the party members told me they did not vote for the party in 2016 because we did not take care of them,” he explained.
