The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has not been the choice of the people since the late Rawlings left office, says Nana Akufo Addo.
Speaking in a meeting with the leadership of the NPP in the Greater Accra Region, he said “We should remember that ever since Jerry John Rawlings left the presidential scene of politics in our country, no NDC presidential candidate has won more that 50 percent of the votes. His successor Mills, in his first-round against Kuffuor, had 44%, second round, 47%. He gained the same figures in his second run. In 2008, after 3 rounds, he got 50.03%. Mahama, inn 2012 got 50.7%, in 2016, he got 44%, 2020 he got 47% of votes.”
“What these figures tell us is that whenever the members of the NPP put our heads together, we win. The majority is with us. So let us be very clear in our minds. Our opponents with all the shouting, do not have the support of the majority of the people.”
The future of Ghana and this country is in our (NPP) hands and is dependent on our actions,” He stressed.
He then stated that, they won the elections clearly and the NDC claims of the election being rigged is falsehood.
“The NDC has been making a lot of noise that they won the elections. One moment they claim they gained 139 of the parliamentary seats, another they say 145. They are not sure as to how many. All these claims turn out to be false.”
