A New Patriotic Party (NPP) chairman has praised President Nana Akufo-Addo for his performance, claiming he has become the toast of Ghanaians and the envy of political parties in the country.
According to the Tema West constituency chairman, Dennis Amfo-Sefah, Nana Akufo-Addo has been enjoying high ratigns in his presidency because he has delivered on his campaign promises to the people of Ghana.
“I mean President Akufo-Addo is the kind of dream candidate that any party, including even the NDC, would wish to have. His public ratings are high, he is delivering on his promises, and Ghanaians are happy with him,” he said.
Speaking exclusively to the Ghana News Agency, the party chairman said it will not be a difficult decision for the NPP to retain President Akufo-Addo as their candidate for the 2020 general elections.
Mr Dennis Amfo-Sefah, the Tema West Constituency Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), has opened a window into what the ruling party is planning to do with its Presidential ticket for the 2020 election.
“I don’t think the reasons for such a decision by the party will be too difficult to understand,” he stated, adding “In fact, the NPP would be unpatriotic if it were to try to replace President Akufo-Addo with someone else on the 2020 ticket.
“If Ghanaians want him, what would be logical about replacing him with someone else?” he asked.
A few weeks ago, the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana published survey results in which it stated that President Akufo-Addo would beat the NDC’s John Mahama hands-down if elections were held.
In January, a similar survey by the University of Ghana said that President Akufo-Addo would sweep 49.3% of the votes while Mr. Mahama would have 33.3% of the votes.
“It is not only the University of Ghana Political Science Department that has published something like this, in fact even before the University of Ghana published its findings, the Economic Intelligence Unit of the UK also made similar publications in favour of the President ,” Amfo-Sefah said.
According to him, the surveys were informed by the President’s sterling performance in office which yielded results in the form of Free SHS, Planting for Food and Jobs, Nation Builders Corps and ‘one district, one factory.’
Mr Amfo-Sefah said that parents would vote for President Akufo-Addo because of Free SHS, while Nursing and Teacher Trainees would also vote for him because of the restoration of their allowances.
“In Dagbon, President Akufo-Addo fixed the age old dispute between Andanis and Abudus and this is one thing that will disadvantage other candidates. ”
According to him, “Nobody within the NPP will contest Akufo-Addo. He will go unopposed in the NPP primary, and will also even go almost unopposed in the Presidential election because he will beat John Mahama easily.”
