An amalgamation of NDC youth groups drawn from the three Northern Regions loyal to Dr. Spio Gabrah and calling itself the Northern Friends of Spio Gabrah (NFSG) says it will be disappointed in their Presidential hopeful if he pulls out of the hot flag bearership contest between the incumbent President John Evans Atta Mills and former first lady Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings.
The group is convinced that Dr. Spio Gabrah can win the election slated for July 8 to 10 for which reason he should not make any attempt to pull out of the race.
“We the Northern Friends of Spio Gabrah from the three Northern Regions are satisfied with the picking of nomination forms by our preferred candidate Dr. Ekwow Spio Gabrah to contest the flagbearership race with President Mills and Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings.”
Mohammed Mubarik, Secretary to the Northern Friends of Spio Gabrah group on behalf of the entire membership took this stand in a press statement issued to debunk calls on Dr. Spio Gabrah to pull out and support Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawling’s bid.
He is optimistic that NDC delegates will vote massively for Dr. Ekwow Spio Gabrah during the flagbearership election following the open insults and personality attacks by members of the Get Atta Mills Endorsed and Friends of Nana Konadu camps.
“We wish to remind the delegates to observe the uncouth behaviour of some members of the GAME and FONKAR camps and make an informed decision by electing a winnable and the best candidate for our party at the July congress: and that fellow should be someone who can win floating votes in 2012 general election.”
Mohammed Mubarik described Dr. Spio Gabrah as a unifier and the only savior who can unite all NDC members after the congress to retire the NPP flagbearer Nana Akufo Addo in 2012.
“Dr. Ekwow Spio Gabrah should be given the nod to unite both camps in order to propel the party to retain power come 2012 elections as he started his unity campaign by paying a courtesy call on the ex-president last at his private residence on Tuesday ” he emphasized.
The secretary of the Northern Friends of Spio Gabrah reiterated the need for the party’s leadership to expand the Electoral College ahead of the July congress. This in his estimation will convince the aspirants and their supporters to believe the outcome of the congress which is expected to be conducted in a free, fair and transparent manner.
Mohammed Mubarik also maintained that whoever will emerge as the winner cannot win the 2012 general elections without the blessing of the NDC founder former President Jerry John Rawlings.
