Former vice president Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has said Ghanaians are already searching for alternatives since they are disappointed about how the country is being run, just a year into the Akufo Addo government’s tenure of office.
According to him, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) will choose a suitable leader who will wrestle power from the incumbent New Patriotic Party(NPP) during the election 2020, and make live better for Ghanaians.
The former Vice President, made the statement on the 25th December, 2017 in Ho when he spoke to the media after a visit on the Christmas day to make some donations to children on admission at the Ho Regional and Municipal Hospitals with his wife, Matilda Amissah –Arthur.
Asked if he’ll contest the NDC Presidential race, he said a leader will come from a reorganized party but not a leader imposed on a party that is disorganized. Adding that a reorganized party at the branch level will elect a leader who represents the best interest of Ghana.
He said currently he’s not thinking about that because the NDC is not ready yet in choosing who leads the party in 2020.
“We are not yet there, I don’t know why people are so interested in candidature and leadership”. He stated.
Mr Amissah –Arthur said being out of government now, what he spends his time doing is analyzing what they could have done better looking at the national situation. And also deciding what they can do to move this country forward.
The former second gentleman of the Country further stated that currently the NDC is critically looking at policies and programs that would move this country forward from where it is now.
He said the NDC is currently reorganizing the party to be stronger and a voice that reflects the mood of the people.
