Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential hopeful, Stephen Atubiga has said that one of his contenders in the NDC flagbearership race, Professor Joshua Alabi , will be a threat to himself and the country should he become a president.
According to him, the country would have to spend a lot on security intelligence to protect him when he [Alabi] travels out of the country because culturally, he is not welcomed in certain countries.
“Alabi is a threat to himself and the country, should he become president, a lot of money would have to be spent on his security. When he travels to some specific countries, we can’t guarantee his come back,” Atubiga told Kwame Afrifa–Mensah on Happy FM’s ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ show.
He also dared Alabi to go and campaign in other countries like he is currently doing in Ghana.
“Let him [Alabi] go to other countries to go and campaign or walk free and let see if he will return to Ghana,” he added.
Mr. Atubiga again reaffirmed that, “Joshua Alabi will not be safe, because there is an eminent threat to his life in certain countries so he should stay in Ghana and become my special Advisor.”
Atubiga with his ‘power to the people’ slogan observed his opponents and their traits and gave them position in his ‘hypothetical ‘Government.
“Sylvester Mensah who has a quiet disposition will do well as a Foreign Affairs Minister. Ekwow Spio-Garbrah whose wisdom is like the shape of a schnapp bottle, can play any role given to him.
He also said he will make Alban Bagbin the speaker of Parliament because of his experience as a seasoned Parliamentarian spanning several years.
Already, eleven candidates are said to have declared their intention to contest, as directed by the party. Among the eleven includes former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), Sylvester Mensah and former Vice Chancellor of the University for Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), Prof. Joshua Alabi, as well as former Trades Minister, Ekwow Spio-Garbrah, Alban Bagbin, Former President John Mahama.
