The National Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr. Sammy Awuku, has advised Ghanaians to remain vigilant so they do not fall for the lure and deception of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
According to him, Ghanaians cannot continue to rely on the deception of the NDC especially when the party’s flagbearer is one who has been in power before and could not transform the lives of citizens.
In apparent reference to the flagbearer of the NDC, former President John Mahama, Sammi Awuku reiterated that “We believe that this is a candidate we’ve known over the years. We do not want to discuss much of what the NDC wants to do. But what we are interested in is that Ghanaians should not fall for the lies and deception”.
For Awuku, Ghanaians are faced with the choice of President Akufo-Addo, who he said has delivered on all his promises, and former President Mahama who is a sweet talker and can deceive citizens if they let their guards down.
“We face a choice on December 7. Basically we are confronted with a former President and a sitting President. One has delivered and kept his promise. One on the other hand has proven to be a smooth talker with a silver tongue …, you’ll exchange your color TV with a black and white”, counseled Mr Awuku in an exclusive.
He indicated that Ghanaians know the NDC’s candidate, John Mahama very well and as such the NPP does not need to say much about him or the party’s negative plans.
Sammi Awuku further indicated that it is better the NPP retains power to enable President Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia move the country out of the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
He said the country requires the rich leadership of President Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia’s intellect when it comes economic matters to maneuver Ghana out of the hardships economists are predicting due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We believe Ghanaians stand at an advantageous position having Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the winsome pair of an experienced, solid, strong, courageous leader whose efforts are being complimented by that of an able Vice President, a renowned economist and a banker.
“In a post COVID-19 Ghana, you will definitely need someone with some financial background to also compliment the effort of a strong and decisive leader,” he said.
