Deputy National Organiser of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joshua Hamidu Akamba has abandoned his close pal at the crossroads after he announced his decision to run as the flagbearer of the party.
Mr Kojo Bonsu who hitherto his shocking announcement yesterday was working in concert with Mr Akamba in the party’s Unity Walks which many claimed was a move to fly the kite about the intention of former President John Dramani Mahama, was believed to be working in the interest of the former President.
Following his official announcement on Friday, the National Organiser Aspirant has dissociated himself from him and disclosed that he has no knowledge or hand in whatever decision he is making
“I must confess, that I have been taken aback by this traitorous, self-seeking and wicked hidden Agenda by Kojo Bonsu and wish to emphatically indicate, that I Joshua Hamidu Akamba, has absolutely nothing to do with this self-centered Agenda”, he stated in a statement copied to MyNewsGh.com

For Immediate Release
29th September, 2018
JOSHUA AKAMBA DISTANCES HIMSELF FROM KOJO BONSU AND HIS SUPPOSED FLAGBEARERSHIP CONTEST.
My attention has been drawn to a news item on citinewsroom.com, suggesting that Mr Kojo Bonsu, intends to join the Flagbearership contest of our dear party.
I must confess, that I have been taken aback by this traitorous, self-seeking and wicked hidden Agenda by Kojo Bonsu and wish to emphatically indicate, that I Joshua Hamidu Akamba, has absolutely nothing to do with this self-centered Agenda.
I wish to, therefore, distance myself from Kojo Bonsu and his supposed Presidential Bid.
My Choice for the Flagbearership of our dear party is known by all and Kojo Bonsu himself can testify to my unflinched loyalty to H.E John Dramani Mahama and the Family.
I am appalled by the betrayal of trust he has exhibited and wishes to use this medium to distance myself from him and his supposed Presidential Bid.
I remain focused on helping to rebuild, restructure and reposition the party on the right footing for Victory 2020.
“When you have a Ladle, you don’t use your hands to fetch hot soup”.
Obviously, our Presidential Candidate for the 2020 elections is known by all and I am committed to this Gracious COME BACK
Long Live the NDC!!!
Joshua Hamidu Akamba
Aspiring National Organizer
National Democratic Congress
