President Akufo-Addo has spoken on why he believes he truly and legitimately won the 2020 election.
According to him, all the doubts raised about the 2020 election results by the NDC are unfounded because majority of Ghanaians have massive love and support for the NPP ever since.
Speaking to the party leadership in Accra, President Akufo-Addo said since the end of the term of late former President Jerry John Rawlings, NDC has failed to win the hearts of Ghanaians which is why he believes he won the election.
“We should remember that ever since Jerry John Rawlings left the presidential scene of politics in our country, no NDC presidential candidate has won more than 50 per cent of the votes. His successor Mills, in his first-round against Kufuor, had 44%, second round, 47%. He gained the same figures in his second run. In 2008, after 3 rounds, he got 50.03%. Mahama, in 2012 got 50.7%, in 2016 he got 44%, in 2020 he got 47% of the votes.”
“What these figures tell us is that whenever the members of the NPP put our heads together, we win. The majority is with us. So let us be very clear in our minds. Our opponents with all the shouting, do not have the support of the majority of the people.”
“The future of Ghana and this country is in our [NPP] hands and is dependent on our actions,” he added.
President Akufo-Addo also said the claim by the NDC that they won the election is false,
“The NDC has been making a lot of noise that they won the elections. One moment they claim they gained 139 of the parliamentary seats, another they say 145. They are not sure as to how many. All these claims turn out to be false”.
Meanwhile, the flagbearer of the NDC for the 2020 election former President John Dramani Mahama is contesting the election results in the Supreme Court.
