NDC is not desperate for power - Koku Anyidoho
Deputy General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho has debunked claims that they are desperate for power hence, the reason why they are using the Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah in their campaign. The NDC has intensified its campaign ahead of the 2016 general election.
The Vice President is currently on tour of the Eastern region convincing voters to massively endorse President Mahama's second term bid. Julius Debrah is also in the Northern party of the country where he has admonished voters to retain President Mahama to continue with his good works. Some have described the campaign approach by the NDC, as an act of desperation for power.
But speaking in an interview with Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, Koku Anyidoho said, they (NDC) are not taking anything for granted until the final results are declared.
The deputy scribe of the umbrella family revealed, they have adopted this form of campaigning ahead of the election, to ensure victory for the party. He said, no member of the party is going to rest but hit the ground and campaign vigorously for the party for victory 2016.
He said, they are leaving no stone unturned but will go out in their numbers and campaign.
''We are not desperate for power. We have decided as a party to use the remaining two months ahead of the election, to campaign across the length and breadth of this country. We will not relax but work hard to retain the president.''
According to him, a diplomat called him to commend the party for their style of campaign. He said, the diplomat was surprised that a party that claim to have achieved unparalleled records, are rather on grounds campaigning vigorously than their counterparts.
Koku Anyidoho stated further that, the unprecedented achievements of President Mahama is the core message they will continue to hammer on.
He noted that, a vote for the NPP will retrogress the country hence voters should be careful and resist the fake promises from the NPP if they want Ghana to move forward.
The incompetence of the erstwhile Kufour administration he said, compounded the energy crisis, brought about judgement debts and worsened our economic crisis.
