You Lack The Necessary Experience To Lead NDC As Flagbearer-Dr.Samuel Sarpong Tells Kojo Bonsu


Former Ashanti Regional Minister, Dr.Samuel Sarpong, says his compatriot Kojo Bonsu lacks the necessary experience to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as flagbearer for Election 2024.

He says Mr.Bonsu lacks the pedigree to challenge former President John Mahama in the party’s presidential primaries.

The former Mayor of Kumasi, Kojo Bonsu, has asked the blessings of the Asantehene in his quest to emerge the first Ashanti flagbearer of the NDC.

He told the Asantehene of his desire to increase the fortunes of the opposition party in the Ashanti region.

“I went to inform Otumfuo Osei Tutu II that when the NDC opens nomination for the flagbearer race, I would want to contest.

The former Kumasi mayor  indicated,
NDC as a political party has never had an Ashanti flagbearer that’s why he was  at the ASANTEHENE’s palace  to ask for his prayers and support to lead the NDC for the Ashantis for victory 2024″.

According to Dr.Samuel Sarpong,Kojo Bonsu who now wants to challenge the former President Mahama was appointed as a Mayor for Kumasi by former President  John Dramani Mahama.

He said,even other political parties support the bid of  John Mahama to win the 2024 elections to continue his good works but don’t understand why Kojo Bonsu wants to unseat him(Mahama)

What experience does Kojo Bonsu have to challenge Mahama to lead the NDC to be president of Ghana? What experience do you have to be president of Ghana?.Dr.Sarpong further asked.

Dr.Sarpong revealed that those who are advising Kojo Bonsu should do it well to make him rescind his decision because it is not possible for Kojo Bonsu to lead the party.”

Meanwhile, Mr Sarpong, also a former Mayor of Kumasi, says it is inaccurate to give credit to Kojo Bonsu as the initiator of the Kejetia Redevelopment Project.

Mr Sarpong says he initiated the framework for the project take off in 2009.

“Some people want to twist the fact, and I am setting the record straight. I started the Kejetia Project in 2009, and Kojo came to continue. So it is never true that Kojo Bonsu started the project.”

Samuel Sarpong spoke to Nhyira Fm’s Obidehyie Ofori Amanfo on Kuro-Yi-Mu-Nsem as monitored by The Punch Newspaper.
