Mahama wasn't matured enough for Presidency - BAGBIN

 Member of Parliament for Nadowli Kaleo and presidential aspirant for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2020 general election, Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin has issued a blame on the party’s poor outcome in the last election on the low quality of its presidential candidate, John Dramani Mahama.

Mr. Bagbin explains the former president ,Dramani Mahama was not thoroughly prepared for the Presidential position making him lack some critical vitals that would have made him perform well when he had the opportunity to lead the country. According to the former majority speaker, Mahama should have spent more time in Parliament to better understand governance. He, however added that certain eventualities had to push the party to rush him unto the Presidential ticket first as running mate to the late John Mills and then by default as presidential candidate.

Mr. Bagbin added that he, however played a significant role in remedying the deficiencies in the former president. He insists that he is the best person for the NDC presidential ticket as he is not only mature for the job but has the requisite experience amongst the other contestants in the race. “It was under his leadership that the NDC was that humiliated in the 2016 election and so he has a baggage to carry…and it was through me that he was able to climb up and he is aware the kind of contribution I did to mould him to get to that state.

“I must say that maybe we had to rush him into that leadership position. He hadn’t had enough opportunity to mature before getting the presidency,” the former Health Minister said during a campaign tour in the Central region.
