The importance of Bernard Allotey Jacobs, the former Central Regional Chairman of NDC to the party’s chances of victory in the 2020 General Elections has been underscored by a former presidential hopeful of the NDC, Stephen Atubiga.
According to Stephen Atubiga, the party cannot afford to lose Allotey Jacobs to the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) since he is a valuable asset to the NDC.
The roles played by the former Central Regional chairman, according to Stephen Atubiga, are very significant in ensuring John Dramani Mahama’s return to lead the party ahead of the 2020 Presidential elections hence Allotey Jacobs cannot be sidestepped as far as the NDC’s chances in the elections are concerned.
With this, he emphasized that the loyalty of Allotey Jacobs to John Dramani Mahama is not in doubt. He, therefore, noted that his[Allotey Jacobs’] alleged misunderstanding with some executives of the NDC should not be enough grounds for him to contribute to the defeat of the party.
In a social media post, Stephen Atubiga expressed that “put me on record, brother Allotey Jacobs contributed a lot to JDM’s victory to lead NDC. Allotey Jacobs is an asset for the NDC, we must listing to his grievances in the party , to bring him back on Bord. Allotey’s Jacobs misunderstanding with some of our national executives, should not warrant him to contribute to our defeat. I have a lot of respect for him.
