Start preparing your handing over notes – Asiedu Nketiah to Akuffo Addo Appointees

Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketsia, the National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress has called on appointees of the Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo government to start preparing their handing over notes since they have a few months ahead to exit power.

He indicated during a press briefing that the Ghanaian public has lost confidence in the government of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and that they are ready to vote them out in the upcoming general elections.

He emphasized that attempts to thwart the aspirations of innocent citizens fighting for their freedom will ultimately fail.

“They will fail because no power can defeat an organized and determined people struggling for their freedom. Truth is, Ghanaians have already abandoned the NPP and their followers. Therefore, the NPP ministers must begin preparing their handing over notes.”

He went on to illustrate the party’s declining support by pointing to the recent District Assembly elections.

As examples, he highlighted constituencies with sitting NPP MPs, such as Walewale in the North East region, Okere in the Eastern region, Essikadu-Ketan in the Western region, Abura Asebu Kwamankese (AAK) in the Central region, and Hohoe, where the NDC demonstrated a commendable performance.

He said, “Already, thousands of persons affiliated to the NPP have lost the District Level Elections. Yes, NPP people have miserably lost the Assembly and Unit Committee elections to members, supporters, and affiliates of the NDC.”

He added, “Ashanti and Eastern regions were also very impressive for the NDC compared to 2019 performance. Presently, even though the Electoral Commission unexpectedly postponed voting in some electoral areas in these two stronghold regions of the ruling NPP, NDC members and affiliates secured 34.13% and 45.52% of the electoral areas in Ashanti and Eastern regions respectively.”
