Facts: 6 Reasons why NDC might Win 2020 December polls

The 2020 presidential elections will as usual be the inclusive battle between the two major political parties i.e NPP and NDC. The political space will be as hot as molten iron. The violence, the propaganda, the mystic promises will be present in the atmosphere.

But that’s not our topic for today but we want to take this opportunity to urge our fellow Ghanaians that parties come into power, and parties will leave power. Never put your life on the line for any politician even not for those in the NDC.

I wasn’t right, Akufo-Addo is another standard lawmaker – A Plus

Every election is Ghana is always determined by the floating voters. Some are sympathetic whereas others are base on the performance of the party in power. Now let’s take a look at the following reasons that signal the lead for NDC in the December 7 elections.

The level of corruption in Ghana is all-time higher than any other period since our independence. The most painful thing is that when people are caught within the government machinery, nothing will happen to them.


We don’t even know whether it is still the same NPP who was crying loudly because of some corrupt practices that were thoroughly investigated during the NDC administration and some perpetrators were prosecuted.

As for this NPP administration, those that were caught red-handed I’m corruption are walking freely at the presidency. We all saw corruption caught on camera on the premises of the presidency, missing excavators, missing SADA tricycles, PDS scandal, cash for seat saga, missing cocaine, and others. In the end, no prosecution is done.

This is one of the reasons that will drive away floating votes from NPP. If they lose them, the NDC will amass them.

Fight against corruption watchdogs

When we thought we have seen it all, this NPP administration launched a mechanism to eliminate all forms of barriers to corruption. Their barrier is the watchdogs that make sure they expose corrupt practices at the public enclave.

Let’s assume you turn blind eye to corruption, but to fight those who serve as watchdogs is as corrupt as the corruption itself. Freelancers such as Anas Aremeyaw Anas and Manasseh Azure are into hidings because of the terror that has been unleashed onto them for exposing this corruption under this NPP government.

Well, let’s assume they are private individuals, but the Auditor General that was virtually sacked is was the last standing watchdog to be ridden off. This has pushed many floating voters towards the NDC and may vote for them because of the impunity orchestrated by this government in the fight against corruption fighters.

Failure to protect our peace

I have never witnessed a total disregard towards the peace fabric of our dear nation until the party I voted for in 2016 came into power. It all started when some hoodlums stormed various public organizations and took jobs by hock and crock.

The same caliber of people under the NPP machinery terrorized courts to free their members on trials. We all saw what happened to Montie 3 who even threatened judges. As for these people, they even got the guts to storm the court.

Ayawaso west wagon by-election violence was a catastrophe and am afraid just like many other floating voters that if this government comes into power again, the rate of political violence will be the norm of our peaceful nation.

Just recently, a whole minister claimed she defended herself with warning shots at a registration center. Well, if everyone was to follow the same path, then I wonder if Ghana will stand. As a result, many floating voters are going to cast their votes for someone who will allow the law to take its course.

The double standard in policy fulfilments

This government in power has the ungrateful character towards fulfilling some of their promises. The promise has always been sweeter than reality. It comes to a point where the current President was awarded a title called “king promise”.

They always promise gold but gives coal. The promised dams could not even hold water in the dry season, the promised factories became castles in the air.

These unfulfilled promises are not what will cost the NPP government in the 2020 elections, but the failure on their part to accept the facts of their mediocrity in policy implementations and correct them. This is likely to win more votes for the NDC come December election.


This pandemic has cleared the fog created by the NPP in 2016 that we don’t eat infrastructure. Though the majority of us bought their idea because the infrastructure doesn’t put money directly in our pockets but the benefits are reaped in the long term.

The health sector was boosted by spectacular medical centers by the NDC government which served as the backbone in the COVID-19 fight. Many have realized that the NDC government was visionary which we did not consider in 2016.

Sympathy Votes

This category of voters will be massive for the NDC. Their peaceful presidential candidates have proved that politics is not about loose talk, but the visions that follow you. The acceptance of making mistakes and intend to correct time make one a better leader. That is the candidate that the NDC is presenting at the December polls.

These and many other reasons will make it a cool chop for the NDC come December 7. If the NPP wants to turn the lead in their favor, then they must correct those problems they have with the public and are mentioned above. Other than that, the NDC will win the 2020 elections.


NPP will win by 87 percent at Suhum – NPP Communicators

According to them, the electorate have shown their readiness to vote for the ruling government because they have also enjoyed the national cake.

“Looking at the work of Nana Akufo-Addo our President, the residents of Suhum have assured NPP of 87 percentage victory and if the elections were to be held today that’s what we are going to get from the Suhum constituency,” they said.

“Our parliamentary candidate in the constituency, Hon Oboafour Kwadwo Asante is the people’s choice and currently doing house- to-house campaign and promising them jobs through his philanthropism and development at Suhum, as well as buying and selling cars on work and pay basis. In view of this, he has touched the electorate, so they have declared their support for Oboafour Kwadwo Asante, we are saying that after the election NPP will poll 87 percent and the rest of 13 percent will be shared for the rest of the political parties.

‘”Its better for the National Democractic Congress (NDC) to advise Amanda Okyere who is contesting on the ticket of NDC to step down before it’s too late,” they gave a friendly advice.

“It is not about John Mahama, it is about Ghana,” he added.

The issue of state institutions or independent institutions being accused of dancing to the tune of the government has been a major campaign message for opposition parties.

The suspicion of state institutions doing the bidding of the government has been exploited by both sides of the political divide.

During the 2012 election petition, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) then in opposition accused the judiciary and the Electoral Commission (EC) of being biased in favour of the NDC which had then been declared victors of the 2012 elections.- #GhanaVotes2020


If You Become President, You Will Do Worse – A Plus Slams Mahama For Making Too Many Promises

Popular Ghanaian musician and political activist, Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as A-Plus has slammed former President John Dramani Mahama for the number of promises he continues to make whenever he mounts a platform.

The NDC flagbearer while outdooring his running mate at an event held at the University for Professional Studies in Accra on Monday, July 27 promised to pay all depositors whose monies are locked up as a result of the collapse of financial institutions by government.

But reacting to this, A-Plus who has built an enviable reputation as a fair and firm critic advised the former President to desist from making those promises since he will not fulfill them even if he wins power.

He wrote, “Lol. Boss stop!!! Stop!!! Just tell Ghanaians to vote for you. Don’t make any promises. Just say, Ghana must have a president so vote for me to become president. Those who like you will vote for you”.

Were you not in this country when someone promised to fight corruption but is now fighting everyone who is fighting corruption? Were you not in this country when someone promised to use Anas’ strategy to fight corruption and used investigations by Manasseh as evidence that you were corrupt but is now fighting the same Manasseh? Me, I will never support you or NPP.

I will never believe any of you. I will never vote for any of you. You are the same. If you become president you’ll do worse!!! It is a fact!!! Ghanaians don’t believe in NDC and NPP promises anymore oooo. You are making too many promises. Forget it!!!

He was serving as the Chief Executive Officer of Forestry Commission of Ghana before his demise on July 1, 2020.

Early life and education

Legal career
Afriyie entered into private law practice in 1981.[4] During the John Agyekum Kufour administration, he was appointed head of legal services at the Ghana National Petroleum Corporation. He was later made to act as the Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the corporation.

Political career

While managing his firm, Afriyie was also actively engaged in Ghanaian politics. He served as the general secretary of the New Patriotic Party from 2010 to 2014. He lost his bid to secure a second term to Kwabena Agyapong.In May 2017, while serving as the CEO of the Forestry Commission, he publicly declared that he would contest the New Patriotic Party’s general secretary elections if there was an overwhelming call for him to do so.

CEO of Forestry Commission
In March 2017, President Nana Akuffo-Addo appointed Afriyie as CEO of the Forestry Commission.He replaced Samuel Afari Dartey, whose term as the CEO had ended. His appointment was surprising to many Ghanaians because of many rumours that he was linked to the position of head of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority. That position was given to Paul Asare Ansah. Afriyie later revealed that the rumours were true but he had rejected the appointment due to his fear of the sea.[8][9] He thanked the president for the Forestry Commission appointment and believed that since he hailed from the forest zone of Ghana, he would be able to have a greater impact in that area.

As CEO of the Forestry Commission, Afriyie’s job is to oversee the various public agencies that form the divisions of the Commission. His first assignment as head of the commission was to supervise the celebration of World Forest Day which fell on 21 March 2017.

Parties divided over Supreme Court ruling on new register

The parties involved in the case demanding the use of the current voter ID as the prerequisite and valid proof of identity in the upcoming voter registration exercise are sharply divided over a ruling delivered by the Supreme Court.
The court delivered the ruling today, Thursday, June 25, 2020, but factions in the case are giving conflicting interpretations into the decision.
The Court upon dismissing some of the reliefs sought by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Mark Takyi-Banson directed the Electoral Commission to go ahead with the voter registration exercise as scheduled.
The Court also made subsequent pronouncements on the amended law governing elections in the country.
This, however, left the parties involved divided over whether the Court upheld the use of the existing voter ID card as proof of identity for the purposes of registration or not.
Lawyers of the parties are currently still engaged over the decision of the Court.
Whereas officials of the NDC believe the ruling went in their favour, officials from the Attorney General’s office argue otherwise.

Asiedu Nketia speaks
General Secretary of the NDC, Johson Asiedu Nketia told the media that “We just came out of the Supreme Court and the court has just delivered its ruling which has granted our request for the inclusion of the existing voter card as a source document for the compilation of the new voters’ register. I think that we are most grateful. This is the most substantive issue for which we came to court”.
“So we will get back to the office and we will address a full-blown press conference on the consequential matters arising. We feel vindicated because the court itself in an earlier ruling has clearly stated that the possession of an existing voters’ ID means that the holder is a citizen of Ghana who is qualified to be registered and to exercise his or her powers and so the court couldn’t go back on its own earlier ruling,” he added.

Akufo-Addo’s Covid-19 management chaotic – John Mahama

Previous President John Mahama has depicted President Akufo-Addo’s administration of the Covid-19 emergency as disordered.

The circumstance, the Former president stated, had prompted the spike in cases over the most recent fourteen days.

He said there is as of now a ton of weight on Ghana’s wellbeing framework with wellbeing laborers testing positive for the infection and compelling them to go into self-separation.

“Today, there are upsetting reports of wellbeing laborers being uncovered, trying constructive and compelled to experience self-separation, isolate or treatment,” President Mahama said in a live association with individuals on Facebook.

“This is a tragic impression of the Akufo-Addo organization’s tumultuous treatment of the Covid-19 circumstance.”

In the live association on Facebook on Thursday night, the NDC Flagbearer likewise blamed President Akufo-Addo for looking for parochial interests in the midst of the pandemic just as declining to be guided by science and information.

He stated: “You can’t do publicity with a pandemic. Arranging Council of State individuals, boss and understudy gatherings to the seat of government to praise the President on his treatment of the infection won’t let the infection leave. The diseases and passings will consistently uncover you.”

The previous President showed that the pandemic has put a great deal of weight on Ghana’s wellbeing framework bringing about an antagonistic impact on the arrangement of dependable and quality social insurance to patients with other wellbeing conditions.

He approached the administration to expand the quantity of Covid-19 testing places to quick track the arrival of test results.

Mr. Mahama additionally requested that the legislature be straightforward in the administration of the pandemic with the end goal for Ghanaians to have certainty and trust in the framework.
