Atik who is seeking to be the General Secretary said, Ghanaians are going to see a different PNC in the 2016 general elections.
The Policy Analyst, speaking on an Accra based Peace FM Thursday, said the time has come for his party to have a strategic thinking on constituencies they spend resources on.
“The time has come for people to think strategically…You don’t need to spend much money on a seat you know you are not going to win” he advised.
Atik’s confidence came after the candidate for the PNC, Wombeago Namal Teng polled 6,838 representing 27.90% of the total votes in the Talensi by-election on Tuesday.
The PNC candidate was closely beaten by the candidate for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mr. Thomas Duanab who polled 6,845 representing 27.94% whiles B.T Baba of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) won with 10,366 representing 42.31% of the total votes.
Atik Mohammed however sees this as a great performance from his party and further advised his party to throw their weight on candidates who are serious and determined to win parliamentary seats for their party.
