Ousted La Dadekotopon MP, Nii Amasah Namoale, has bragged that he would win the party’s Presidential nomination in 2020 – and he would beat any candidate that dares faces him, including John Mahama.
Namoale, a three term MP who was beaten in last year’s polls, said on Kokrokoo Tuesday that he is ready to lead the party in 2020 and nobody can stop him.
“I will beat anyone who would contest with me including John Mahama…,” he confidently said on Peace Fm’s flagship morning show.
Former President Mahama, who is the defacto head of the party, has been the subject of immense speculation over his future and whether he would return to lead the NDC in the next elections, having served only one term in office.
The NDC seems to be split over whether he should come back, as some like Nii Lante Vanderpuye have said Mahama would be forced to run even if he doesn’t want to, whilst another faction seem intent on moving on from his era – Mahama himself has been noncommittal on his political future so far.
According to Namoale, though, only one person can stop him from running in 2020.
“2020 Nii Amssah Namoale would contest for the presidency if Professor Joshua Alabi is not contesting…,” he added.
