Aseidu Nketia ,the general secretary of the NDC recently said on Citi news that the current speaker of parliament Alban Babin might not contest to lead the NDC to the upcoming general election in 2024 .
He said Alban Babin will regret ever to do that since he knows this chances of winning is very low and he will consider such an action to be foolhardy since he would have to loss his seat as the current speaker of parliament and that action would not be in his favour.
I don’t think that Bagbin will resign his position as a Speaker of Parliament to go and stand in the race to become the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress. If you were the third-ranked person in the country, will you resign from your position to go and stand contest in primaries?” Asiedu Nketia said
“If he is there as a Speaker, he will be a Speaker for four years. Why would anybody resign from a speakership, two years in, go and contest presidential primaries where there is a high chance of losing and then go and stay home after losing the primaries for the two years when he can be a speaker for four years till the next election?” he added.
