NDC: Kojo Bonsu rescinds decision to contest for flagbearer

Kojo Bonsu who was looking to lead the National Democratic Congress (NDC) into the 2020 election has opted out of the flagbearer race.



In a statement, Mr Bonsu said the decision to opt out of the race is as a result of “considerable deliberation and reflection.”

He was part of the eight aspirants who fought for the reduction of the filing fee from ¢400,000 to ¢300,000.

In his statement announcing his decision not to contest Mr Bonsu said:

“I would like to thank the Council of Elders for their prompt response to our petition regarding the flagbearership election.”

It is with deep regret that after considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided to end my campaign for the flagbearership of the NDC today.

Attached is the full statement

PRESS RELEASE: FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
I would like to thank the Council of Elders for their prompt response to our petition regarding the NDC flagbearership election.
It is with deep regret that after considerable deliberation and reflection, I have decided to end my campaign for the flagbearership of the NDC today.

However, my boundless optimism for the long-term future of the NDC and Ghana at large remains steadfast. The fight is far from over, I am not ending the fight for unity and accountability and I am not ending the fight for victory for the NDC.

As a dedicated member of the NDC, I look forward to working with the Party and the elected Flagbearer to advance issues of importance to our beloved country.

I will use this opportunity wish all the aspirants the best of luck, and I urge them to unite after the election and work together with the eventual winner because without unity we cannot defeat the NPP come 2020.

Lastly, I want to express my sincere thanks to my advisers, campaign team, friends, volunteers and loyal supporters who generously contributed their time
and effort to our campaign; I am honoured and humbled that you placed your trust in me.

God bless NDC
God bless our Homeland Ghana
