NDC flagbearership: Former Assemblyman joins race

The number of people seeking to lead the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) into the impending General Elections in 2020 has increased by one as David Dotsey Kwami Kuwadah, a former Assembly member at the Edzranawo Electoral Area in the Ketu South Municipality of the Volta region is the latest to declare his intentions to join the race.

The flag bearer aspirant of the NDC, David Dotsey Kwami Kuwadah, has said his decision to seek the frontal role of the party stems from a divine call by God to change the old order of things in the party and ultimately the nation.

At a press conference in Accra on Monday, October 1, 2018, the presidential candidate hopeful said he has already presented his letter of intent to the National Secretariat of the Party and has met all the requirements.

According to him, his call to the flagbeareship contest is divinely inspired because he has on several occasions met an angel who impressed upon him to come and deliver the people of Ghana from hardship and to change the old order of corruption and monetization of the political landscape in the country.

He believes he is the modern day David who is inspired by God to defeat the Biblical Goliath of our time, decapitate him and finally redeem the people of God from the hardships the country is undergoing under the current administration.

“David Dotsey Kwami Kuwadah, being president of Ghana on the ticket of the NDC come 2020, will place God and Ghana first in everything that we will do as government. The wisdom of God will be used to steer the affairs of the country. As you all know, the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God,” he noted.

Kwami Kuwadah, who was a onetime a Branch Communications officer for the NDC at the Hedzranawo RC Mission ‘B’ said he is going to lead and operate a Civil Democratic Revolution that will clear out all the mess and wipe out corruption which he considers to be the worst enemy of development in the country.

“I am seeking to lead the NDC because I strongly believe in equality. Our 1992 constitution states that every Ghanaian is equal before the law, but you will agree with me that, that is the opposite of the reality and not practical under our current political dispensation,” he noted.

Throwing more light on his vision, he said economically, a government under his leadership, with the NDC taking over power in December 2020, would give priority to industrialisation but certainly not the empty promises as others did like the 1D1F by the current New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.

Under his administration, he said, technical parks would be established in every district and the youth would be encouraged and motivated to venture into self-reliant enterprises.

“My government shall also run an effective agriculture system, not just to produce for consumption but put an end to most of the things that we import.

My government will also expand the production of all that we grow locally so that we can also have an excess and glut to also extend into their exportation,” he stressed.

He added that his government would establish effective and easily accessible complaints units across the country that would be monitored by the presidency so that the seat of government would be very close to the citizens.
