Mustapha Hamid the Deputy National Campaign Manager for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2020 election says they have picked up signals that the National Democratic (NDC) will record a worse defeat in the upcoming elections than 2016.
Dr. Hamid says the defeat of 2020 will be devastating than what happened in 2016.
At a news conference in Accra on Wednesday, October 14th, 2020 Dr. Hamid who doubles as Minister of Zongo and Inner City Development also said “We of the NPP have also not been surprised about the bankruptcy of ideas and inefficiency that have characterized the NDC’s campaign. What is shocking, however, is the plague of self-denial that has blinded the party from accepting that Ghanaians will overwhelmingly reject them come December 7, 2020″.
He added that “Even when credible global Institutions have looked into the crystal ball and projected victory for the NPP in the 2020 general elections, the NDC remains adamant that it could hoodwink Ghanaians into believing in its propaganda-laden campaign message”.
On 9 December 2016, sitting president Mahama conceded defeat to Akufo-Addo in the presidential elections. Akufo-Addo won the election with 53.83% of the votes against Mahama's 44.4%.
