Former President John Dramani Mahama, is the best candidate for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), former Ghana’s Ambassador to China, Horace Ankrah, has posited.
The diplomat told Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, the rank and file of the umbrella family is yearning for the return of Mr Mahama.
Mr Mahama he said is more than qualified, competent and skilled to win the 2020 polls for the NDC.
‘’The NDC needs former President John Dramani Mahama as candidate. He will win the 2020 polls for NDC.’’
In his view, you don’t stop serving and when you are capable of serving people, you don’t have to reject that opportunity because you don’t stop serving.’’
He also disclosed on the show he declined to contest the presidential race because he did not want to betray the man who appointed him and boosted his political career.
To him, contesting Mahama will be an act of betrayal and ungratefulness.
According to him, his presidential ambition has not been abandoned but will at the appointed time, declare his intension to run for president.
He has also accepted to partner Mr Mahama as vice presidential candidate if given the opportunity.
‘’Former President Mahama was the one who gave me the opportunity. I believe in something and that is, if you have to be great, then you have to be grateful. I will not contest Mr Mahama as a sign of my gratitude to him for the opportunity he gave me to serve under his administration.’’
