The contest for the flagbearer position of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the 2020 election is likely to be keen as the former Trade Minister under the erstwhile John Mahama administration Ekwow Spio-Garbrah has launched the ‘Forward Agenda’ to help him lead the party ahead of the 2020 elections.
This is the second time the former Communications Minister is making an attempt to lead the NDC.
Mr. Spio-Garbrah addressing the media Wednesday evening said the Forward Agenda will carry the message of sacrifice and commitment to help in the development of Ghana.
The Agenda, he said, “is not one that can be led by just anybody. It is not just a matter of your talents, it is not a matter of the nature of your educational attainments or your financial capacity, it is the motivation in your spirit which is very difficult to measure.”
This latest move by the former Education Minister comes after a statement by the Spio-Gabrah Fan Club (SGFC) called on the former Ghana ambassador to the United States and Mexico to consider contesting for the flagbearer slot of the NDC.
