The Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has admonished the members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to avoid thinking the 2020 election is a done deal for the party.
Mr. Oppong Nkrumah insists such thoughts are dangerous to the party’s quest to retain power.
Leading a street and house campaign in Akyem Ayirebi in the Eastern Region, Mr. Nkrumah warned that the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) should not be underestimated in their ability to hoodwink Ghanaians in the last two weeks of the election.
“We have worked hard, but the most important thing now is to avoid complacency and ensure all pro-NPP registered voters cast their ballots correctly on December 7,” he said.
Distributing handbills and educating voters on how to vote, Mr. Nkrumah warned that any NPP member who assumes the election has been won already poses a danger to the cause of the party.
“We need to work hard because our future as a country depends on this election. All of us must work as though we were still in opposition. We must not stop knocking on doors, visiting shops and lorry stations until we secure a wide margin victory for Nana Addo and his MPs,” he added.
Victory will elude us if we sleep -Freddie Blay
Freddie Blay, the National Chairman of the party had earlier charged the members of the party not to be complacent in the build-up to the 2020 polls.
According to him, any form of complacency would be inimical to the party’s desire.
“Until we clinch a resounding victory, we can’t sleep. If we sleep, it will slip,” he said.
