Former Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu is the greatest presidential candidate for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), according to Chairman Wontumi, the regional leader of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) for Ashanti.
The NPP chairman stated that the NDC’s strongest candidate for the 2024 election is Haruna Iddrisu, Member of Parliament for Tamale South, and he urged with the party to disregard former President John Mahama if they want to win the election.
The opposing party made a mistake by presenting the later candidate rather than the first, who, according to Chairman Wontumi, was just a master at motivating party members to disparage others.
He argued: “Look, the NDC’s best candidate couldn’t pick forms; their best candidate is Haruna Iddrisu,” in a March 3, 2023 interview on Wontumi TV. His political and parliamentary abilities have been hindered by the party.
“Trust me when I say these are jokes. Haruna Iddrisu is their strongest candidate. Their best candidate, even if they won’t be able to win the 2024 elections, is Haruna.
“You don’t let people see that you’re an aggressive guy if you want to be in politics. What does Mahama bring to the table? Claiming that everyone will die in 2024—how? We should perish because you want to be president, right?
But if you thoroughly verify each candidate the NPP is bringing, you’ll find that they are all qualified for the position and in good standing.
He added “…but for the NDC, if you’ve realized, they don’t now speak about policies but insults. They have recruited people both locals and foreigners to insult. If Mahama likes, he should talk about policies or things that he did, but still, he’s going to lose.
So, they are without a candidate at all, and their finest candidate has suffered political harm at the hands of the party; he is now on the injury bench. He had been sitting on the sidelines for all of football, he remarked.
A few months ago, Harruna Iddrisu’s position as Minority Leader was eliminated by the NDC leadership.
Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, a lawmaker for Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam, has taken his seat.
The party claimed that the adjustments are a part of its process of restructuring in preparation for the election in 2024.
“It has become essential for you to deploy you from your existing post as Deputy Minority Leader with immediate effect,” a statement issued by General Secretary of the party Fiifi Kwetey said on Tuesday, January 24.
