“Where were they when we were working hard to vote out incompetent, thieving Mahama and his ‘friends and family’ government in 2016? But today, Akufo-Addo and his family and friends have hijacked all the contracts and are chopping the money alone by heart. They should go and campaign alone and vote alone in 2020! As for me, I’m done.”

Information available to the Daily Statesman suggests that the New Patriotic Party is poised to take the Nadowli Kaleo seat from the National Democratic Congress in the 2020 elections, now that Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin, the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, has announced he will not be seeking re-election.

The recurring ritual of National Democratic Congress activists dumping the party in frustration has begun, ahead of the 2020 parliamentary and presidential elections, and the trend is expected to become more pronounced in the coming months.
