Former President John Mahama says members of his party, (NDC) will jealously guard the ballot on election day.
According to him, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will not accept the results of the 2020 general elections should it deem the process as unfair.
“… You have the opportunity to change that and you can only change that if you’re able to vote, and so you must not allow anybody to disrupt that voting procedure in your polling station branch and make your vote not to count. And so, Let’s us all commit to peaceful elections and I know that if the elections are peaceful, free and fair, NDC would be victorious in the election.”
He further stated that “We have several programs, when we launch our manifesto we would give you more details but there are many things in there that would ensure that our young people get jobs to do because today, it’s about jobs; what is the use of going to school and when our children complete the university and become graduates they can’t find jobs; and so, every program that we are going to do must relate to creating jobs.”
He stressed that, they are rather looking at establishing a well-trained ‘Ballot Box Protection Unit’ who will protect NDC ballot boxes during elections.
He said the NDC will put together strong armed men to face the New Patriotic Party [NPP] ahead of the 2020 elections.
