Former Presidential Candidate for the Convention Peoples Party (CPP) Dr Abu Sakara Forster has denied reports suggesting that he has endorsed the candidature of the sitting President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
There were reports suggesting that Abu Sakara had endorsed the President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s second term bid describing the opposition NDC as “wounded and tired”.
But in a post on his social media pages, the former flag-bearer said his post shared on his Facebook page was an analysis of the current trends and does not amount to an endorsement.
To him, what is analysis sought to do was to “advise his Facebook followers and friends not to vote on the basis of only who they think is likely to win. They should STOP following the crowd and think hard about what they want in return for their vote!! They should think hard about how their vote will influence the well being of the country over the next four years. They should consider whether there will be inclusive government or not? They should think about whether the government will operate by meritocracy or not”.
He indicated that with time, he will make his choice of candidate known to the public.
“Abu Sakara’s choice will be made known directly at the appropriate time since he is not a candidate in this election. Abu Sakara has not endorsed any candidate at this time, he has firmly set the parameters that will guide his choice so that those who follow him will understand and hopefully make an equally informed considered choice that does not just follow the crowd.”
