Kojo Bonsu, a former mayor of Kumasi and potential flagbearer for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has formally submitted his candidacy form to run in the flagbearer election on May 13 at the party’s headquarters.
Mr. Bonsu is vying to represent the NDC in the general elections of 2024 as its flagbearer.
On March 22, his Special Assistant Mohammed Alhassan filled out the form on his behalf.
He was accompanied by a few followers who were dancing and blowing vuvuzelas while drumming.
After submitting the nomination form, Mr. Bonsu addressed the media and said, “I want to thank my team for having time to come and receive me today. I’m grateful for everything you’ve done. The NDC is one party; we must work together to defeat our shared foe, who is not any one party member, in order to go and sever the golden fleece in 2024. I appreciate being here with you this afternoon.
He charged the party faithful to come together to ensure that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) are kicked out of office come 2025.
The former mayor of Kumasi emphasized that he is the NDC’s best chance of winning.
When he considers the flagbearership crown, he urged the Muslim Community to remember him in their prayers.
Kojo Bonsu’s forms were accepted, and NDC General Secretary Fiifi Kwetey wished the Presidential Candidate well in his endeavors to lead the NDC.
He urged supporters of Kojo Bonsu and other contenders to unite behind whoever becomes the party’s leader after May 13.
Fiifi Kwetey declined the chance to urge the various supporters to use good manners in order to avoid reflecting poorly on their candidates and the party.
