NPP will beat NDC with positive record - Awuku
The National Organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammi Awuku, has stated that the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) cannot contest the excellent performance of the current Akufo-Addo administration ahead of the 2020 general elections.
He stated that the Akufo-Addo administration has chalked up significant successes in just two and half years, adding that the electorate would renew the mandate of the party in the next elections.
“In the 2020 elections, the NPP shall campaign on our positive records and that would enable us to inflict a painful defeat on the NDC once again just as we did in 2016,” he said, adding “the NDC was in power for eight years and so we shall compare our landmark successes in our first term with their records, and I doubt if the NDC has any records to campaign for votes.”
Addressing NPP organizers during a conference in France on Saturday, Mr. Awuku stated that the NPP would carefully sell its achievements to the electorate.
The programme was attended by NPP organizers in the Diaspora and Ghana, who discussed plans to strengthen the party to retain power in 2020.
“We are winning the next presidential and parliamentary polls with our numerous achievements. This will be an election of comparing records, therefore the NDC needs to prepare,” he said to a rapturous applause.
“The NPP shall present the free SHS policy, One District, One Factory, ‘Planting for Food and Jobs,’ restoration of teacher and nursing trainee allowances and all the other positive policies we are implementing.”
“This will put us at advantageous position to repeat the dose on the NDC in 2020 because we all know that the NDC doesn’t have any positive records to campaign for votes,” he added.
The event was attended by Henry Nana Boakye, the NPP National Youth Organizer; Lawyer Justin Kodua, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Youth Employment Agency (YEA), and other regional organizers of the party in Ghana.
