Former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly, Kojo Bonsu, has officially joined the flagbearership race of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
He, in a letter of intent addressed to the General Secretary of the NDC, said his versatile experience in entrepreneurship and corporate leadership can be harnessed by the party for victory in 2020.
“It is with a sense of unwavering commitment and dedication that I submit my intention to run for the position of NDC flagbearer and to commence my publicity campaign. I do this in accordance with your announcement that those wishing to contest the upcoming NDC election should notify your office in writing.”
“I am of the belief that my broad experience as entrepreneur, businessman, corporate leader, sports administrator, life-long social democrat and public servant, can be used to make a meaningful and lasting contribution towards unifying the NDC and leading it to victory in 2020,” he added in the letter.
Kojo Bonsu had declared his intention to contest the flagbearership race when he called on former President Jerry John Rawlings.
Eleven others including former President John Mahama and former Vice Chancellor of the University of Professional Studies (UPSA), Prof. Joshua Alabi are also in the race.
The party has scheduled to hold the primaries in December 2018.
