A former Deputy Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho has blamed the party’s loss in the 2016 general elections on a campaign strategy that was largely managed by persons he calls strangers.
According to him, about one million voters did not vote for the NDC because of the strategies and personalities the party employed for its campaigns.
The former Deputy General Secretary who was speaking to some journalists stressed that the party shall not use the same tactics in the 2020 elections.
Nana Akufo-Addo defeated the then incumbent president, John Mahama after obtaining 53.9% of the total valid votes, while John Mahama managed 44.4% during the 2016 general elections.
The NDC subsequently set up a committee to probe its abysmal performance.
The Committee has already submitted its report to the leadership of the party.
Meanwhile, results from research conducted by the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana have shown that President Nana Akufo-Addo will beat former president John Dramani Mahama hands down should elections be held again.
Per the results earlier presented by Head of Political Science Department, Dr. Maame Gyekye-Jandoh, President Akufo-Addo would have led the poll with 49.3% with John Mahama trailing behind with 33.3%.
