Written by | October 12, 2018 | 0
Ghanaians are being called upon by New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central to recall the “short memory insult” thrown in their faces by then President John Dramani Mahama and reject his 2020 ambition, MyNewsGh.com has filed. According to Kennedy Agyapong, the fact that there are people who still believe Mahama’s 2020 ambition is viable, is why he is getting convinced that Mahama might have been right in saying Ghanaians have a short memory.

Dr. Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, Presidential aspirant of the National Democratic Congress A flagbearer aspirant of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Dr Ekwow Spio-Garbrah says all indications from the party’s branch and regional level elections point to a move for change within the party’s set up. He believes that high demand by the grassroots members to remove all old executives who supervised the party’s abysmal performance in the 2016 presidential elections makes him the best bet for the party’s flagbearership slot. “There is a tsunami in the NDC which is blowing leaders away and that is why I believe it’s now my time. Only two out of ten Regional Chairmen who declared support for Mahama were re-elected” he claimed. “The fact that people know you doesn’t mean
