Award-winning actor, Prince David Osei has said that the decision of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), to elect John Dramani Mahama as its flagbearer for the second time “is an insult to Ghanaians.”

Speaking in an interview monitored by ABC News, Prince David Osei questioned if the NDC had no competent candidates to represent the party for the upcoming December 7 elections aside former President Mahama.

Explaining his reasons for saying that, Prince David Osei said former President Mahama was actively involved in the eight-year administration of the NDC-led government as a Vice President and subsequently a President, so coming back to stand on the ticket of the party again “makes me wonder if there are no eligible people in the NDC.”

He argued that ex-President Mahama become a President, finished his term and was voted out, so it beats his mind that he is coming back again, adding however that “I might be wrong.”

“So the whole of Ghana – the whole of NDC, there’s nobody to stand apart from him – I don’t know but there’s nobody – No eligible, no efficient leader?” he quizzed.

Prince David Osei said if John Mahama is the only option the NDC has then there is a leadership crisis in the NDC because it is not possible that out of a population of about 35 million they cannot get even one other person to represent the party.

“I don’t know but you’ve been President and just after four years, you want to come back to become a President again – I feel like it’s an insult to the nation – it’s an insult because for a flagbearer they could have nominated any other person,” he added.

The actor said he would have supported the NDC this time around if they selected anyone but Mahama.

He mentioned people like Alban Bagbin, Ekow Spio Gabrah, saying if NDC had selected any of them or anyone else, he would have probably rooted for that candidate.

He thinks John Mahama should have excused himself from the 2020 race, having served as Vice President and President in previous NDC governments.

Prince David Osei therefore entreated Ghanaians to vote for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in the December 7 elections to “continue with the good work he has started”.

He said, judging from the structures and policies that the current NPP administration have put in place, he believes they deserved four more years to extend the benefits of those structures and policies so that Ghanaians will enjoy the fruits thereof.
