Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) leading Member and ardent supporter of former president John Dramani Mahama, Stephen Atugiba has impressed upon delegates of the Party not to vote for Professor Joshua Alabi as the Party’s presidential candidate.
According to him, the learned academician and politician is an albino and cannot go to Tanzania to transact business on behalf of the country, alleging that he will be used for rituals if he dares go there.
“If you vote for Joshua Alabi as NDC candidate and he becomes President of Ghana, he can’t go to Tanzania to negotiate, he will be used for rituals there because he is an albino’’.
The professional electrician turned politician who dropped out of the NDC presidential candidacy race and threw his weight behind former president John Dramani Mahama said albinos are an endangered group of people in Tanzania and that should Professor Alabi be elected NDC flagbearer and eventually wins the general elections, Ghana will have to cut ties with that country because the president cannot go there.
The NDC goes to the polls today, Saturday February 23, 2019 to elect presidential candidate to lead the party into the 2020 elections.
In all, six persons are contesting the position, with political watchers tipping former president John Dramanu Mahama to emerge victorious.
