Second Deputy Speaker and flagbearer hopeful of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Alban Bagbin has unveiled Fritz Baffour as his director of communications and campaign.

The former Chairman of the Defense and Interior was introduced at a press conference held in Alban Bagbin’s campaign head office in Accra.

Speaking to the media on Monday, the former Ablekuma South lawmaker said he had known the second Deputy Speaker over thirty years before he went into politics and had always admired his sense of duty and purpose, and again his sense of service.

According to him, his choice to support Mr Bagbin “was not based on any malice. It’s because I feel he’s a good man. All the contestants for the NDC flagbearership are people I know and I have a lot of respect for. But this is a democratic dispensation and a process and so I have come out to support Alban Bagbin.”

“I am a staunch believer in the values of the NDC transparency, probity and accountability and Alban Bagbin among all the about 13 persons hoping to lead the NDC into the 2020 elections is the only embodiment of those values”, he said.

He noted that, Alban Bagbin upholds all the values of the NDC. “Again we are the party of the vulnerable, we are the party of the voiceless, we are the party of the man in the street and we believe in equal opportunity for all and that we should be the ones to ensure means for people to have access to best things in the society I do not believe in adversarial politics”.

“I’ll not hurl insults to anybody or manufacture insults and invectives at anybody”, he pointed out.
