President Akufo-Addo says the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has not been the choice of Ghanaians ever since late Jerry John Rawlings left office in 2001.
President Akufo-Addo says the NPP has the support of the majority of Ghanaians.
Speaking at a meeting with the leadership of the party 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 than 50 percent of the votes. His successor Mills, in his first-round against Kufuor, had 44%, second round, 47%. He gained the same figures in his second run. In 2008, after 3 rounds, he got 50.03%. Mahama, in 2012 got 50.7%, in 2016 he got 44%, in 2020 he got 47% of the votes.”
