Kojo Bonsu, a former mayor of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (AMA), has claimed that if he is chosen as the National Democratic Congress (NDC) party’s flagbearer, it will be simpler for the NDC to win the 2024 elections.
In an interview with Raymond Acquah on UpFront, he said, “I’ve told you that as an Ashanti that will bring the votes; it will add on because Ashantis want their own as the leader.
He claims that the NDC will easily win the 2024 elections if it receives more votes in the Ashanti area, and he believes this is one of the main reasons he should be given consideration to lead the party.
Kojo Bonsu announced his intention to compete for NDC flagbearer earlier this year at the Manhyia Palace during the Akwasidae Festival, when he asked the Asantehene’s blessing to become the party’s first Ashanti flagbearer.
“If I take the lead, we’ll triumph with ease. We will still work hard and succeed [if I am not], but it will be simpler if I take the lead. The votes are recorded, the data is present, etc. You can easily win the election in Ashanti if you receive more votes. He insisted, “This is not rocket science.
Meanwhile, former Finance Minister Dr Kwabena Duffuor has also announced his intent to lead the NDC in the 2024 election.
