Nurideen rejected the suggestion his 0.231% garnered does not make his interest a joke unless that is also to suggest that 1.03% managed by Alban Bagbin also shows he and others were joking.
The outcome, he said, is only confirmation, Mahama’s victory is “the will of the people,” something he could not have seen ahead of the polls until it happened.
Ekwow Spio-Garbrah trying his second shot at leading the NDC, found his ambition shot down again. Like Goosie Tanoh, he maintained the process was skewed to favour the eventual winner.
But Goosie Tanoh would not readily gush about supporting Mahama. He insisted he would support the party which he said is “indirectly” supporting Mahama.
In his concession interview with Joy News, he spoke as the presumptive nominee drawing attention to the economy and the exchange rate, lamenting “Ghana is not at a place where it should be.”
He was clear in his mind the way forward for the NDC should be if it is to have a “fairly good run” in 2020. The NDC needs to achieve “internal cohesion” by drawing up a program of policies which the grassroot can buy into and run with.”
Leaning on his notable strength in talking policy, he revealed his immediate focus is using his Organise for Ghana (O4G), a “progressive platform” to incubate “very specific policy intervention”.
These policies will be very well thought through he said and had a dig at the government suggesting its policies and implementation are guess-work inspired.
