Alban Bagbin hints at run for president

Alban-Bagbin2In a recent interaction with the media at Takpo in the Upper West Region, Alban Bagbin says people who know him will not be surprised if he runs for president.

He said as a kid, he had always dreamt of becoming the president of Ghana, saying his teacher, M.A Seidu, can attest to his claim.

He gave the hint when he was asked about his presidential ambition. Responding, he said: “Won’t you be happy if I contest.”

“But for me, if you even ask my teacher M.A Seidu he will tell you that my dream from childhood has been to become a president so people won’t be surprised, but you will be happy to see me contest the presidency,” the second deputy speaker of parliament said.

The veteran National Democratic Congress legislator was the lead voice of the party in opposition during the Kufuor administration when he served as the minority leader.

He later became the Majority leader during the Mahama administration having served as Health Minister under former president John Atta Mills.
