He continued, “I am saying this because wherever I have been to in the country, majority of the people are determined to vote for the NPP; and the voice of the people is the voice of God and no one can stand in the way of God.”
Mr Mac Manu was addressing members of the Takoradi Polytechnic (T-Poly) chapter of the Tertiary Education Students Confederacy (TESCON) of the NPP during the handing over ceremony of the old T-Poly TESCON executives to the incoming ones.
He noted that Ghanaians had been plunged into a state of discomfort and distress by the current government and that they could not afford another four years of long suffering under the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC).
NDC Gurus Concede
He stated, “It is therefore of no surprise that kingpins of the ruling NDC in their private conversations on various social media discuss among themselves that the NDC is likely to lose but they dare not come out publicly to say it.”
Mr Mac Manu indicated that even though he had been receiving a series of calls from all over about certain alleged machinations of the NDC to rig the elections, he was not perturbed because Ghanaians had made up their minds to vote massively for change.
He indicated that it was appalling to note that activists of the NDC kept on saying that the NPP did not have any message and were demanding the NPP manifesto for the election.
“This year’s election is not about the NPP message but the eight-year rule of the NDC. The ruling party should tell Ghanaians what they have done to improve the people’s living conditions for the past eight years,” he said.
He explained that the NPP would soon come out with its manifesto but stressed that there was no need to rush so that the NDC could copy as the ruling party did in the case of the NPP’s free senior high school policy.
For his part, Sammy Awuku, the National Youth Organiser of the NPP, claimed that the ground was fertile for the NPP to snatch power from the NDC but admitted that it was not going to be an easy task.
He indicated that the quest for power demanded hard work, commitment and dedication by every member of the party, especially the youth, to ensure that power was indeed delivered to the NPP.
“As TESCON members, I expect you to mobilise the students on campus and conscientise them on the need to vote for change in this year’s election since this year’s poll is about their future,” he added.
Present were Mike Oquaye Jnr, Deputy Communication Director of the NPP, Mr Wilson Arthur, the party’s parliamentary candidate for Wassa East, Andrew Agyapa Mercer, NPP’s parliamentary candidate for Sekondi, as well as other regional executives of the party.
