The campaign team of opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential candidate hopeful Professor Joshua Alabi is predicting a runoff in the primaries.
According one of the campaign coordinators, Richard Quashigah who is the NDC Member of Parliament for the Ketu South Constituency in the Volta Region, the NDC presidential primaries is no cool chop for any particular candidate as is being speculated by sections of the party folks.
According to Mr. Quashigah who is also a former Propaganda secretary for the NDC, Professor Alabi is poised to give former president John Dramani Mahama a good run for his money, adding that the grounds and party grassroots supporters have shown their support for Prof. Alabi and will ensure that he emerges the party’s presidential candidate for the 2020 elections.
“The actual face off on January 19, 2019 which will be between former president John Mahama and my candidate professor Joshua Alabi will be very interesting. You know all the aspirants are aiming at getting 50 plus percentage of the votes that will be cast and I can assure you that nobody will even get the 50percent. There is a likelihood of a second round anyway. We have also been to the grounds and if they say they are holding the grounds then they are living in self-denial” he said.
