Mr. Kojo Bonsu, a Former Mayor of Kumasi has revealed that he is the best person to lead opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) into the 2024 Presidential Elections.

He believes that the NDC will not be able to win if the party endorses Former President John Dramani Mahama to lead the party again in 2024.

Mr. Kojo Bonsu stated in an interview with Citi TV that he stands a better chance than Former President Mahama because he has not been soiled with corruption and women’s affairs.

“It’s so sad, he is a great gentleman, speaks very well, very affable, but he has been put in the mud so much. They have tagged him with corruption, women’s affairs, and we the NDC have not been able to defend it and get him out of it”, he stated.

“We should have redeemed him long ago, but he doesn’t have a chance now. Let’s bring in someone fresh so that the swing voters wouldn’t have anything to say against President Mahama. I stand a better chance than Mahama because I have not been soiled, so that is where I come in.”

According to him, “if the party had corrected this, we wouldn’t have come to this level. If we want to win the 2024 elections, I think let’s bring someone like me. I am eligible to do it. It’s not an issue of fighting Mahama, insulting the former President, or doing anything, but the situation we find ourselves in, let’s try someone new and see if it will work.”

He stressed that his decision to contest for the NDC’s flagbearership slot should not be misinterpreted for his hatred for former President John Dramani Mahama.

According to him, he has no issue with the Former President.

“There is a vacancy and that is why we are all contesting the seat. It is democracy and our party believes in democracy, so we don’t push people on people to take over. We don’t want that. So if one is given the chance, and he wins it, he will do the job. So it is fair we all do it. One other reason I am contesting is not that I hate President Mahama. No….why? What has he done to me? He was a great President but his time became a problem”, Mr. Kojo Bonsu noted.
