The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has indicated that the decision by Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom to step down from contesting in the 2020 general election will not affect the Party’s fortunes for the 2020 elections and beyond.

According to the Party’s Communication Director, Paa Kow Ackon the PPP has a lot of Dr Nduom’s type both in and out of the country capable of leading the party.

“If Dr Nduom is not contesting in the 2020 elections, I don’t think that should be the end of the party. The party has a lot of Dr Nduom’s type both in Ghana and abroad,” Mr Ackon told ABC News.

Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, who is a three time flagbearer of the PPP since 2008 announced to state-owned Daily Graphic that he won’t be partaking in the 2020 general election as a flagbearer due to his ill health.

Following this declaration, some Ghanaians have expressed worry that the PPP will collapse since the Party seemed to have revolved around the founder of Groupe Ndoum.

Speaking to ABC News on the back of this development, Mr Ackon said, “So far 4 people have picked forms which tells you without Dr Nduom, there are a number of people who are capable of leading the party into the 2020 elections.”

He however maintained that Dr Nduom not contesting in the election “doesn’t mean he is out of the campaign.” he added that, “he will be there to support the candidate.”

He advised that political parties must have succession plans in order to allow people to take over from ‘Stars’ of the party.

“People think that once the ‘star’ of a party leaves, the party will collapse, it may be said of other parties but not the PPP, we’re a formidable force. And what we must also consider is that Dr Nduom won’t be there forever, he may be sick, he may die, something can happen, we are mortals and we won’t be there all the time so i think that it’s even good that other people are also given the opportunity and become even greater than him.

“Political parties need to have succession plans so that if you’re not there, others can take over and run the affairs of the party.”
