Nobody can stop Mahama’s one-touch victory - Omane Boamah
Communications Minister Dr Edward Omane Boamah is optimistic President John Mahama is heading for a one-touch victory in the 2016 elections due to his remarkable record.
A very spirited Dr. Boamah declared that “no man or woman or animal” can stop his boss from retaining the seat being contested by over five others.
Speaking on Wednesday at the maiden Zongo Youth conference in the Eastern region, Dr Boamah exclaimed: “I am positive, beyond reasonable doubt that the enthusiasm that we have seen here… no man, no woman, no animal will stop president John Dramani Mahama of winning a one-touch victory in the 2016 elections.”
A very hopeful Dr Boamah stressed that the ruling National Democratic Congress will retain its seven seats in the Eastern region and will add to them come December 7.
Meanwhile, the Center for Democratic Development (CDD) has revealed in a survey that 70 percent of Ghanaians believe that the Ghanaian economy is headed the wrong direction, adding that nearly half of the populace approved of the president’s leadership skills and performance.
But speaking at the same forum, a deputy General Secretary of the NDC Koku Anyidohu said the policy think-tank is an appendage of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) hence supporters of the party should rubbish its recent report.
He said the report is just a damage control scheme to cover up Nana Akufo-Addo’s mess and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia in recent times.
Over 2000 Zongo youth attended the conference organized by the NDC as part of its strategy towards the Agenda 50/50 feat.
