National Organiser of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Kofi Adams has downplayed the decision by five presidential aspirants in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to work against the chances of former President John Mahama.
Mr Adams believes the contenders lack the political gravitas to do any damage to Mahama’s bid.
Speaking in an interview Mr. Adams said, “I laugh sometimes when I hear people saying Mahama is not capable of winning the flagbearership slot. And I hear some aspirants are ganging up against him. In fact, you lack the strength to compete for yourselves, how much more joining forces to beat Mahama. Do they even have that strength.”
The five, all of whom have expressed interest in leading the NDC in the 2020 elections are Dr. Ekow Spio-Garbrah, Goosie Tanoh, Sylvester Mensah, Alban Bagbin and Kweku Ricketts-Hagan.
Two others, Stephen Atubiga and Professor Joshua Alabi, were however not present.
However, Mr. Adams is of the view that Mahama remains the most sellable candidate.
“John Mahama will win hands down, the race to lead the party, and proceed to beat President Nana Akufo-Addo in the 2020 elections to make history. Mahama is best, I will say it again and again, he is the best”, Mr. Adam stated.
