The 2020 Elections Campaign Director of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Peter Mac Manu, has said the poor record of Mr John Dramani Mahama as President compared to the good performance of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, is what will lead to the defeat of the NDC in the 7 December 2020 polls.
Mr Mac Manu denied accusations by the NDC that it is conspiring with the National Identification Authority (NIA) and the Electoral Commission (EC) to rig the 2020 general elections in favour of President Nana Akufo-Addo.
Speaking at a press conference in response to allegations of voter suppression and rigging, Mr Mac Manu said the NDC is making excuses in anticipation of its defeat.
“NDC must be reminded that the NPP, as an opposition party, beat the NDC in 2026 and by the largest margin ever in Ghana’s history against an incumbent President in Ghana’s history.
“It is not the fault of any Ghanaian that the NDC chose to bring back as their presidential candidate for 2020, the very man at whose ahands the NDC suffered their biggest defeat in history”.
“It is not the fault of NPP that the NDC chose to bring back as their 2020 presidential candidate, the very same man who gave Ghana the worst economic growth performance since 1994”.
“We do not need the EC to rig an election in our favour. A government that has put 1.3 million children to school, who, if NDC were in power, would be on the streets, does not need an election to be rigged in its favour.
“President Nana Addo Dankwa Akudo-Addo continues to show leadership and commitment to the welfare of ordinary Ghanaians and it is this which gives us the confidence that the Ghanaian people will recognise his leadership and performance and allow the party that knows how to deliver, to continue.”
