Ghana’s former High Commissioner to Egypt and Saudi Arabia, Alhaji Said Sinare, has casted doubts on the performance of other candidates competiting John Dramani Mahama to lead the NDC in 2024.
The astute politician has said a candidate like Kwabena Duffour will put up a relatively good fight but wouldn’t win, but the performance of Kojo Bonsu, a former Mayor of Kumasi, would be beyond abysmal.
According to him, the former football administrator cannot even poll a percentage after the National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential primaries.

“I doubt someone like Kojo Bonsu will even get 0.01%. Yes, 0.01% he won’t get you can mark my words. Kwabena Duffour will perform better but Kojo Bonsu will not,” he told Captain Smart on Maakye Wednesday, March 1, 2023, on Onua TV/FM.
The former 1st Vice Chairman of the NDC is rooting for former President Mahama to win the primaries and lead the party to the 2024 elections.
He says NDC stalwarts have not abandoned the other candidates for Mahama, but have rather chosen to support him because his competence surpasses the other contenders, despite admitting Dr. Duffour is not a bad candidate either.
He indicated Mahama is a tried and tested candidate who did so much for Ghana as President and placed the economy on a better pedestal than the Akufo-Addo government.
Meanwhile, Mr. Mahama will on Thursday, March 2, 2023, launch his campaign in his bid to lead the NDC as its flagbearer for the 2024 general elections.
Mahama made the announcement in a post on social media Tuesday, February 28, 2023.
The former President is contesting the NDC flagbearership race together with three other persons including former Finance Minister, Dr. Kwabena Duffuor, former Mayor of Kumasi, Kojo Bonsu and 43-year-old businessman based in the United Kingdom, Ernest Kobeah.
The NDC opened nominations for presidential aspirants on February 22 and closed it on February 24.
The John Mahama 2023 campaign launch will be held at the Cedi Auditorium of the University of Health and Allied Sciences in Ho, in the Volta region dubbed “Building the Ghana we want together.”
Meanwhile, the party is expected to hold its presidential primaries on May 6, 2023.
