NPP Internally Admits It Will Lose the Presidential Elections- Mahama

According to the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, the governing party admits and accepts that it will lose the Presidential seat in the upcoming election and is marshalling all avenues to win more Parliamentary seats.

He asserts that one such avenue is seen in the Electoral Commission’s obstruction of party agents from monitoring ongoing vote transfer at various centres.

“The NPP knows and internally admits that it will lose the 2024 presidential elections. We also know that, as a last resort, it seeks to deploy gerrymandering during this voter transfer period to improve its chances in the parliamentary elections in the erroneous belief that it may rely on that to affect its presidential votes.”

He alleged that the government together with the EC plans to transfer some votes from their strongholds to that of the NDC’s to undermine them.

“We have in our possession a long list of constituencies in the Ashanti and Eastern Regions and selected places in Greater Accra and other regions where the NPP is seeking to transfer thousands of voters from their strongholds to offset the NDC’s gains in constituencies we control.”

However, he posits that the plot will fail.

“Ghanaians have already decided to vote Akufo-Addo and Bawumia out because of the unprecedented hardships they are faced with due to their economic mismanagement and deep-seated corruption. I am certain that no amount of collusion between the Electoral Commission and the NPP can rescue the NPP on December 07, 2024.”

The Commission in a memo instructed its Regional Directors to inform district directors about the restriction of political party agents from observing the ongoing transfer of votes effective June 3.

The directive is premised on some violent incidents recorded at some of its centres including one at the Awutu Senya East Constituency in the Central Region on Sunday, June 2, 2024, which was nearly fatal.
