5 Reasons Why Ghanaians Must Vote Against Nana Akufo Addo In The 2020 Election

Former President, John Dramani Mahama is staging a comeback as the flagbearer of the biggest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress.

The fine gentleman was historically kicked out of power in his first term as the president of Ghana when the then opposition leader, Nana Akufo Addo won in a landslide victory in the 2016 election.

Barring any unforeseen circumstances as Covid-19 still lurks in the shadows, Ghana will head to the polls in December this year. It’s obvious the Nana Akufo led government has failed Ghanaians in translating all the promises they made before they assumed power.

Despite the good manner the President has managed the Covid-19 situation in Ghana and scoring high marks on the political scoresheet, Nana Akufo still remains unpopular and we think that gives his closest rival, John Dramani Mahama the edge.

Invariably, NanaAkufo Addo’s failings has reinforced why John Dramani Mahama should be the next option in the next election.

1. Hardship

The hardship under Nana Akufo Addo has been very unbearable. The cost of living keeps soaring while the cedi continue to lose its value against the major foreign currencies. There’s no money in the system and people are struggling to eat three times daily.

2. Corruption

The embezzlement of public funds by civil servants and government officials in Ghana seems to have reached an all-time high and the canker has pervaded the fabric of public sector institutions, posing grave repercussions for the socio-economic growth of the country. The current administration has not found any financial malfeasance after conducting investigations into the various projects initiated by the past government.

3. Intimidation under NPP

There’s no doubt about this- under the current administration, people are freely insulted and intimidated if they speak against Nana Akufo Addo and his government. There have also been high profile killings that have not been solved.

The gruesome murder of investigative journalist Hussein Ahmed-Suale, the harassment and intimidation of journalists like former Joy FM employee Manesseh Azuri, Star FM’s Edward Adeti, Radio XYZ’s Kwame Minka etc., as well as the Gestapo shutdown of Radio Gold, Radio XYZ and other media organisations is an intimidating and silencing political.opposition.

4. Elephant Sized Government

Nana Akufo Addo’s ministerial cabinet is unprecedented in the political history of Ghana. There’s a total of 110 ministerial appointments. As you can imagine, this will invariably promote corruption.

5. Cedi not performing well

Dr Mahamudu Bawumia touts himself as an economic guru who haunted John Dramani Mahama and the late Kwesi Ammissah Arthur with his so-called ‘170 questions’ about the economy after a lecture on the state of the economy. However, since the assumption of office, the cedi has been depreciating at an alarming rate yet Bawumia seems to be clueless about how to salvage the situation.

Our Vigilance Has Reduced Foreigners On Ghana's Voter Register - John Boadu

The General Secretary of of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr John Boadu says the vigilance of the party’s polling agents during the mass voters registration exercise which ended last week has led to a drastic reduction in the number of voters in constituencies along Ghana’s borders.

According to him, this was achieved by the vigilance of the party’s agents in challenging foreigners, mostly those close to the border towns from registering.

He said in some border constituencies, the number of voters on the register reduced by over 12,000 people as compared to what existed on the previous voters register.

Mr Boadu was addressing a press conference in Accra Monday afternoon, August 10, 2020 on the just ended mass voter registration exercise.

Arguing in support of the Electoral Commission’s decision for the new voters register, Mr Boadu said the exercise has helped to prevent about three million names from staying on the electoral roll which hitherto should not have been there going by the law.

He said at the end of the voter registration exercise last week, the EC registered a little over 17 million people.

That, according to him, if the EC should have gone ahead to use the old voter register and conducted a limited registration exercise, per the statistics, the EC would have added three million more people who are not qualified to register, hence increasing the figure to over 20 million people.
