“I will stand to be voted for as the flagbearer for the NDC if ex-President Mahama fails to turn up and my main motive will be to win back power for the NDC. If i get the chance in 2020 i will relinquish the seat from Nana Addo,” the former sports journalist told reporters on Tuesday at a programmed dubbed Accounting to the people at the Methodist Church in Accra.
Nii Lantey Vanderpuye is currently the MP for Odododiodio constituency in the Greater Accra region of Ghana.
