The Member of Parliament for the Manhyia-North constituency in the Ashanti Region, Hon Collins Owusu Amankwah has asked the General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress(NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah not to shy away from his false predictions but to rather apologize to the people of Ghana if he feels the shame.
In an interview with the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper, the MP noted it was unwise to acclaim yourself as a pollster if you were not one.
According to him, the NDC Scribe had arrogated to himself the position of a soothsayer or pollster days before the famous United States of America (USA) elections where he predicted a landslide victory for the former Secretary of State, Mrs Hilary Clinton.
With Donald Trump winning a very famous victory, Hon Collins Owusu Amankwah believes it was best for the NDC General Secretary to apologize for predicting wrongly.
The MP, has however, tasked the members of the NPP to be extra vigilant in the upcoming general election in Ghana, noting that Donald Trump, the newly elected president of the US did same to ensure all Republican votes were counted.
According to him, even though some claims of rigging as alleged by the Trump Team was rejected by a US court, nonetheless, the Republican candidate and his agents were vigilant until victory was won at the end of the polls.
Hon Amankwah, therefore, charged members of the NPP to police the ballot in the upcoming polls until all votes were counted and the winner declared by the EC.
He called for intensive training for the party’s agents so as to enable them trace any moves or tactics aimed at compromising the integrity of the polls on December 7.
With his campaign launch coming on this Sunday, the NPP MP rallied the youth of Manhyia-North to intensify the door to door campaign it has started in the constituency.
According to him, the retail sort of campaigning was the best way of winning more folks into the party’s fold for a famous win in December 7.
The MP promised to double his work rate after the launch which is expected to be graced by the party’s flag-bearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo and the former President, J.A Kufuor.
The veteran highlife musician, Daddy Lumba, the MP noted, is also expected to provide a lively atmosphere so as to ensure the youth are oiled for campaign.
