Bagbin must resign from the Speakership position, if he would want to contest in the primaries, Asiedu Nketia has said.
Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, popularly known as General Mosquito, is a Ghanaian politician and the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress made the disclosure during an interview on Citi TV’s Face to Face.
The General Secretary was heard saying:
“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?
“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?”
