“Aseidu Nketia has given me his endorsement and some bigwigs and I see that as a beauty of the democracy because, if he has decided not to contest, why should I refuse. I will gladly step in his shoes and work for the party,” he said on Accra based Neat FM.

After the NDC lost the 2016 general election most party faithfuls members have been calling for an early congress.

Many people have expressed their intentions to run for positions in the party should it open nominations.

The National Executive Committee (NEC) held a meeting where the party leaders deliberated on the best ways to recapture power in the 2020 elections.

Anyidoho is certain he has the qualities to take after Asiedu Nketia as well as wrestle power from the NPP in 2020.

“Asiedu Nketia has given me the green light and I promise to continue the great work he is doing for the party because, I have what it takes to help wrestle power from the NPP,” he said.
