A member of the NDC says Nana Addo is "incompetent" to win 85% of votes cast in the Ashanti Region.
Ashanti National Youth Organiser of the Democratic Congress (NDC), Brogya Genfi says New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is ‘only day dreaming’ about winning 85% of Ashanti Region votes.
The Youth Organiser said on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Thursday that Nana Addo made the promise out of the blue to only alert NPP supporters to the fact that he is still the leader of the party.
“Not even President Kufuor who is an Ashanti and hails from the region during his time as an NPP flagbearer attained 85% of the votes…so why this promise…,?” he asked.
Nana Akufo-Addo at a meeting with Subin Constituency members of the NPP in his Nima home described as a mirage the much touted 1 million vote campaign of the NDC in Ashanti Region.
Nana Addo further assured the NPP faithful that the party’s leadership has targeted not less than 85% of the popular votes in the Ashanti region, reassuring them that “we will get it in 2016.”
This promise, Brogya Genfi said was just a political statement to assure the NPP supporters that he, Nana Addo was in charge of the NPP campaign and not Bawumia as had been said by party chairman, Paul Afoko.
“But that was a wrong place to say that, he needed to said that either in a market or at rally grounds …you can’t sit in your house without going on the ground and claim votes…,” he added.
He further described the NPP leader as an "incompetent" opposition leader who has supervised over the dwindling fortunes of his party.
Comparing Nana Addo to various opposition leaders that have emerged in this country since 1992, Brogya Genfi said Nana Addo has performed poorly.
“Comparing Nana Addo to other opposition leaders like Adu Boahen, J.A Kufuour and John Evans Atta Mills, I can say Nana is the only person who is incompetent…,” he said.
Brogya Genfi said there is no need to continue to engage someone who has never increased his vote margin since assuming the flagbearer position of the NPP in 2007.
