Deputy general secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Peter Boamah Otokunor has refuted claims that the NDC is preparing the grounds to reject results of the 2020 elections.
The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in a presser addressed by a Deputy National Campaign Manager, Mustapha Hamid said the NDC’s constant attack on the Electoral Commission are ways to get sympathy from the general public should they lose the upcoming elections.
According to him, the defeat of 2020 will be devastating than what happened in 2016.
“Signals being picked indicate that the 2020 defeat will be far worse than 2016 because of the opposition party’s inferior track record in government, weak campaign machinery, and an unattractive flagbearer who suffers a serious credibility deficit,” he added.
“They also emanate from the sheer superiority of the NPP government in keeping to its campaign promises, having a credible leader in His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and relentlessly engaging electorates in every corner of the country to share its message of hope and development through efficient campaign machinery”.
However, responding to the claims by Mustapha Hamid, Mr. Otokunor said they are confident of winning the elections convincingly and that the fact activities of the EC points to the fact that they want to favour the governing party shouldn’t make them keep quiet.
“We know that by the grace of God we will win the elections and how can we reject an election that we are going to win” he spoke on Accra based TV3.
