Deputy Minister for Transport, Nii Kwartei Titus Glover has said President Akufo-Addo will once again beat former President John Dramani Mahama in the upcoming 2020 elections.
Speaking in an interview in Accra, the Member of Parliament for Tema East said the predictions are in favour of the incumbent NPP government.
According to Mr. Titus-Glover, the lead up to the 2020 election will be similar to what happened in the lead-up to the 2016 election which saw former President John Mahama losing by almost one million votes.
“Just like in the lead up to the 2016 [elections], international research and polling organisations like the Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) have predicted victory for President Akufo-Addo. We all know what even the University of Ghana Political Science Department has also been predicting.”
“Those predictions have not been in vacuum, but what Mr. Mahama should even worry about more is the fact that this time round, even Pollsters like Ben Ephson, who were predicting him as the victor in 2016, are not predicting anymore,” Titus Glover said.
He confidently added that, “in 2020, Nana Addo will whip Mahama in the election to cry. Mahama made a mistake by accepting to come back. He should have left when the applause was still loud.”
The Deputy Transport Minister made the submission while giving his opinion about the NDC’s process to elect Parliamentary Candidates for the 2020 General Election.
According to him, there was a clear evidence of little interest in the NDC’s Parliamentary ticket now, in comparison with what happened in 2015 when people were jumping over one another to pick forms.
