Singer Mzbel has admonished Ghana’s immediate past President, John Dramani Mahama, to stay away from the NDC’s next primaries to select the party’s 2020 election’s Presidential candidate.
According to the staunch Mahama supporter, he should stay away because he was betrayed by some elements within the party and those elements should find their own leader.
The conversation over who leads the NDC into the next election has already heated up massively despite the last election only occurring six months ago. Mahama’s name has been bandied about, although he has not made any official announcement over whether he’ll run or not.
Other names like Alban Bagbin and Prof Joshua Alabi have been thrown into the ring, with long time names aspirants such as Spio Garbrah also in there.
But Mzbel wants the former President to stay away from the clamours for his return and remain the elder statesman he’s currently seen as.
She wrote on Fb:
“Hmmm so soon people are already asking for u to return in 2020… Medi3 i’m really against that! I dont support cos i believe u should rise above the betrayal and pettiness of Ghanaian politics. U have been accepted by the international community as a spokesman for Africa. Daddy please don’t descend into the Ghanaian gutter. Let those who betrayed you come up with their flagbearer. #MyOpinion #StillNDC“
Mzbel went all in for the NDC and Mahama in the last election, a decision which brought her all sorts of problems when the NPP won.
