Flagbearer hopeful of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kojo Bonsu, has said his decision to contest the flagbearership race of the party is not borne out of a desire to discredit former President, John Dramani Mahama.
Kojo Bonsu’s decision to contest in the race has raised questions about his loyalty to the former President, given that he served as Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly under his government.
Speaking on Point Blank on Eyewitness News on Friday, Mr. Bonsu however clarified his stance, saying his decision to contest was not influenced by hatred for Mahama.
“I want to clear this; I have the greatest respect for John Dramani Mahama. I have strong successes with him, but we are looking at democracy and the future of the party. It is neither about John Mahama or any other person.
“My campaign is focused. I do not want to talk about anybody and anything. He has been my former boss and we should accord him that respect but we are not enemies. It is only democracy.”
