Former Member of Parliament for La Dade Kotopong says he is no more interested in contesting the flagbearership race of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) anymore.
Although the umbrella family is yet to open nominations for interested candidates to apply, Namoale said his decision to withdraw from the race is to ensure party unity.
According to him, if he goes ahead to contest, he would be compelled to reveal certain secrets in the party which may go a long way to affect party cohesion.
To him, the unity walk being embarked upon by the party is well orchestrated and geared towards imposing a particular candidate on the party faithful, a move he complained does not give a level playing field for the other candidates to contest the flagbearership race.
Interacting with Accra-based UTV, Tuesday, Namoale said what transpired in Cape Coast on Sunday during the 3rd edition of the NDC Unity Walk was telling, especially, comments passed out by the Central Regional Chairman of the party, Allotey Jacobs.
This, together with others, has informed his decision to withdrawn from the party’s flagbearership race.
Having withdrawn from the race, he therefore declared his support for Prof. Joshua Alabi, another candidate who has expressed interest in contesting the race.
