National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku has revealed the NPP will easily win a second term in office with the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) bringing ex-President John Mahama as flagbearer.
According to him, Mr Mahama can only run on his abysmal record, which,in Sammy Awuku’s estimation, Akufo-Addo’s achievements, by the end of his first term, will outshine, thus, rendering the 2020 polls a doddle for the New Patriotic Party.
The NPP man says the election of John Mahama makes a win for the NPP even easier in the 2020 polls.
“We are not worried. We are only excited for their choosing him because it will make our work easier and that will also give us the power for a little longer than the [usual] 8 years. We want to remain in power a little longer and as long as it is Mahama, it gives us the confidence that we are winning the next elections,” Sammy Awuku exclusively told Kwame Tutu on Anopa Nkomo on Accra based Kingdom FM 107.7
“In my view, President Mahama will make our work absolutely easier without a doubt, if the NDC fields him as flagbearer for the 2020 elections because a new candidate would come with new promises and you can’t prove that he can’t do it because he has no track record based on which you can make a judgement, but we can always make reference to Mr Mahama’s track record while he was in office.
“We can simply ask what he achieved in office the last time for which reason he is making a comeback.
