Mr Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin, Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament and MP for Nadowli Kaleo has stated that he had done a lot in politics and was, therefore, having a towering influence over other politicians in the country. “I have seen a lot in politics, especially in Parliament and former President Mahama and President Nana Akufo-Addo both met me in Parliament.

“Former President Mahama is my political God-son, and he is not the only one. I have helped him along with many others from both political divides of our country to shape out their political careers. “I have served so many years from behind, and it is now time to serve as a frontline Politician.”

Mr Bagbin, who was speaking to journalists at his office in Accra in connection with the 2020 flagbearer hopefuls of the opposition National Democratic Congress explained that he had seen it all and was capable of handling the highest position of the land. He said although his relationship with former President Mahama was cordial, he criticised him when he was President and would continue to do same if any of the aspirants went wrong.
