The 2016 presidential and parliamentary election is not a two-horse race. It will not be between the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP). It will not be a contest between Nana Akufo-Addo and John Mahama, founder and leader of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom has said.
“That may have been before ‘dumsor’ – [erratic power supply], Meningococcal Meningitis, IMF squeeze, wanton use of our tax money to fund a personal campaign, killer taxes, unending internal divisions in NPP, concentration on winning an election with no policy alternatives, etc., etc. Not any longer,” he said in a Facebook post Friday March 18.
According to him, the PPP’s message of change to elect MMDCEs, implement FCUBE, use state resources to support local entrepreneurs, separate the Ministry of Justice from the Office of the Attorney-General, and of incorruptible leadership and job creation, was catching on.
Dr Nduom said he believes Ghanaians like the PPP’s coalition idea of using the best people to solve Ghana’s problems.
“The youth are excited. The progressives are taking one village at a time. Are you a believer? Change is possible,” he added.
