Former Member of Parliament (MP) for Ablekuma South and Minister for Information in the Atta Mills administration, Fritz Baffour, has formally endorsed the candidature of Hon Alban Kingsford Sumani Bagbin for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer race.
Hon. Alban Bagbin, he said, has always exhibited a sense of duty, purpose and service, which makes him a formidable candidate to lead the NDC and recapture power from the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
The choice to throw his weight behind the Bagbin campaign, he argued, is without malice to any of the contestants and stressed, “I know all the aspirants and have a lot of respect for them but since this is a democratic dispensation, I have decided to support ASK Bagbin.”
Fritz Baffour indicated that he brings on the campaign his rich experience as a media consultant and communication specialist and stressed that he is a firm believer of the values of the party, which he said sums up the qualities of Hon. Alban Bagbin.
The NDC, he said, is really the only party for the vulnerable, the voiceless and the man on the street and is a party that believes in equal opportunities for all.
“The NDC is the party to ensure the means for people to have access to the best things in society and we are the ones to look out for the right kind of policies,” he stated.
Fritz Baffuor indicated that he does not believe in adversarial politics and therefore the ASK Bagbin campaign will not insult, manufacture abuses or innuendos to throw at opposing campaign teams.
According to him, the ASK Bagbin campaign is going to deliver true messages of the people that will manifest into reality, practice and implementation.
The NDC, he said, is a party that ensures probity, accountability, integrity and justice for all, which is what the team will work for and adding, “And the man to lead NDC to achieve that is ASK Bagbin.”
In his short remark, the 2nd Deputy Speaker noted that his campaign is determined to focus on issues and not personalities and pointed out the Ask Bagbin campaign would try to change the NDC to focus on its core values of probity, transparency, accountability and integrity.
He hailed his new campaign manager, Fritz Baffuor, as a wise counselor, disciplined and focused and a man with an abundance of qualities who has joined the Bagbin movement to fight for a free and just Ghana.
