“All the contestants for the NDC flagbearer position are people I know and have respect for. But this is a democratic dispensation and a process, so I have come out to support Alban Bagbin,” he said.
Mr Baffour made the comment when he was introduced at a press conference in Accra as the new Director of Campaign and Communication for the ASK Bagbin Campaign team.
