Presidential candidate hopeful of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Prof. Joshua Alabi, says he will be Ghana’s president for 8 years if he is given the nod by the party delegates to lead them into the 2020 general election.
“I am going to the Jubilee house in 2021 and will be Ghana’s president for 8 good years. So Ghanaians should watch out for me. I will make Ghana the Swiss of Africa when given the nod and I know I will win hands down”, he told Kwame Afrifa-Mensah in an exclusive interview on Happy FM’s Epa Hoa Daben.
Prof. Alabi believes President Akufo-Addo cannot fulfil most of the promises he made before coming to power. According to him, the New Patriotic Party administration has been fraught with promises upon promises with little action towards delivering them hence Ghana needs a transformational leader like him to put the country on the right track
He said in the area of trade and industry, “there is a lot we can do there. We also can do a lot when we come to agribusiness and for all these, we can use science and technology to move trade and agribusiness.”
When Prof. Alabi was asked by the host to rate Nana Addo’s government on the scale of 1 – 100, He asserted that it’s difficult to rate the President because he [Nana Addo] is not living up to expectation.
“It’s difficult to rate Nana because he is not performing well,” Prof. Alabi asserted.
Prof. Alabi is among some NDC stalwarts who have declared their readiness to lead the party into the 2020 polls.
