The Chief of Staff joining the fray to campaign earnestly towards the re-election of the NDC government is not a sign of desperation by the Mahama administration, the National Campaign Coordinator of the NDC’s 2016 campaign has said.The Chief of Staff is vigorously campaigning in some parts of the country to sustain and whip up enthusiasm among the rank and file of the NDC towards victory for the governing party in the December polls.
Mr. Debrah has implored the NDC to intensify their engagement with the people and to explain the party’s manifesto to the people to NDC’s victory on December 7, 2016.
However, some critics say the desperation of the Mahama administration has caused the official of the Presidency-Chief of Staff to also work on the fringes of a core campaign team to retain the governing party in power.
Reacting to these claims on Kasapa FM, Mr. Adams said the Chief of Staff remains a key personality in government, after the President and his Vice who has a larger view of affairs of governance in the country, thus his contribution to help sell the regime to the people is welcome.
“We don’t want to take chances at all so anybody who can speak for the truth and bring light to Ghanaians we will allow him/her into this year’s campaign. In the US politics, now Republican leaders are saying they won’t vote for Trump and the question I ask myself where were they when Trump rose to lead the party; You don’t wait for the mistakes to happen before you start biting your fingers,” Adams said in an interaction with Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.5 FM Thursday.
The political atmosphere gathers for another major poll in the West African nation-Ghana as nearly 14 million registered voters are expected to elect the next President of the Republic.
Also at stake, is the race for 275 seats in Parliament being contested by 1,300 candidates.
As a result of this, presidential and parliamentary candidates are scrambling in exhaustive campaigns to win the hearts and minds of the electorate in this year’s polls, the sixth to be conducted under the Fourth Republican Constitution.
