The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Director of Elections, Mr. Evans Nimako has said he is confident President Akufo-Addo will end former President John Mahama’s aspirations of leading the country again as President after the 2020 polls.
Addressing Ghana’s voter registration process in an interview on Citi TV’s The Point of View on Monday, Mr. Nimako opined that former President John Mahama “never helped” the country as President, hence the need for him to “take some rest”.
He also accused the opposition National Democratic Congress of initially scheming to sabotage the whole voter registration exercise.
“At this stage, Nana Akufo-Addo will retire Mr. Mahama for good. He needs to take some rest, he never helped. The NDC’s position has been that they didn’t want a cleaned-up register for the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections”.
Mr. Evans Nimako was, however, full of praise for the Electoral Commission led by Jean Mensa.
According to him, the EC, together with NPP polling agents, needed to be commended for good work done during the voter registration exercise.
“Thankfully, we have gotten it, I think this whole voter registration process has been very successful. I will use this opportunity to commend the EC for a good work done,” he added.
