Former President Jerry John Rawlings appears to mock at some of the aspirants in the upcoming flagbearer race of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Mr Rawlings thinks that some of the aspirants including those who are nursing ambitions as running mates are not persons who should be entertained at the presidency since they have nothing to offer.
To him, those people “spend a little too much time grooming their moustache and dyeing their hair.”
In a tweet on Monday, Mr Rawlings questioned whether the presidency is not too busy for such individuals.
He quipped, “Isn’t the Presidency too busy a place for hopefuls/running mates who spend a little too much time grooming their moustache and dyeing their hair?”
While Mr Rawlings names no names, his Monday tweet points to the fact that the former President thinks that some of the flagbearer aspirants cum potential running mates should spare the presidency of their desires.
A total of 13 aspirants have as of now declared interest in the vacant flagbearer position of the main opposition political party ahead of Election 2020.
They are former President John Dramani Mahama, Professor Joshua Alabi, Ekwow Spio Garbrah, Sylvester Mensah, Alban Bagbin, Goosie Tanoh, Kojo Bonsu, Elikplim Lorlormavor Agbemava, Nurudeen Iddrisu, Kweku Ricketts Hagan, Stephen Atubiga and David Dotse Kwame Kuwadah.
