Majority Leader predicts first round victory for Mahama

At the onset of the Mahama administration, Bagbin criticized the president over his leadership, saying he is not enthused about how he is “leading us.”


“I am more than confident that this election will not go a second round,” Bagbin told party supporters in the Upper West Region.

He added that the president has failed to root out corruption.

“I have been part the global fight against corruption, right up from the first parliament and so I have been part of that crusade in this country and so I expected that on the assumption of power, His Excellency President Mahama will have been employing those instruments to fight corruption,” he said.

But Bagbin says a lot has changed since his criticism of the president.

He said with “extreme humility,” the president has made sure proper things were done in an interview Citi FM.

He said: “I am among the first voices to raise the alarm bells about the need for his Excellency to review some things and move in the right direction, which he, with extreme humility complied with and made sure proper things were put in place; and in doing that I saw the humility in this gentleman, he did not in any way try to show that he had the whole power of the nation at his disposal.”
