The Majority Leader in Parliament has asked electorates to vote massively against the Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in order to John Dramani Mahama from politics.
Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu said this during the launch of the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Bono East Youth Wing campaign in Techiman on Sunday.
The Suame MP maintained that ensuring the NPP’s Presidential candidate, President Akufo-Addo secures an overwhelming victory on December 7 will make John Mahama cease engaging in politics.
“The 2020 election is a ‘double-track election’. Akufo-Addo beat Mahama in the previous elections with a margin of about a million votes. If the margin of victory reduces in this coming election, he [John Mahama] will feel he can come and run again. Let’s vote massively and win by two million votes so that even the NDC would have no option but to retire him.
“This is why I am saying the election is a double track one. We are voting to win and also to retire John Mahama,” he said.
Mr Mensah Bonsu who was the Chairman of the programme themed “Transforming Bono East into our strongholds: The focus of the youth”, further urged supporters to vote in favour of NPP’s parliamentary candidates so as to ensure that the party maintains a majority in parliament.
“If Akufo-Addo wants to do something, it has to be backed by law. If he doesn’t have the majority of his people in Parliament, and the NDC boycotts sittings as we have been seeing, it will be very difficult to pass any law. This is why we have to unite and get the majority of our people in Parliament.
This will ensure that whatever he [President Akufo-Addo] wants to do for you will be easily achieved. We can do this by being united” he said.
The programme featured dignitaries like the NPP National Youth Organizer, Henry Nana Boakye, NPP parliamentary candidates for Atebubu-Amantin, Techiman North, Nkoranza South, among other party executives.
