Ghanaians will retain Mahama in 2016 – Kofi Adams

By on
Kofi-Adams-2The National Democratic Congress (NDC) says it is confident Ghanaians will keep it in power come 2016.
According to the party, the change Nigerians voted for has already occurred in Ghana’s 2000 elections therefore it will not repeat itself.The NDC National Organizer, Kofi Adams on Eyewitness News said: “This is the first time Nigerians have had the opportunity of change – changing from one party to another…Ghana experienced that form of change in 2000 when it was the thinking that whatever it was, let us change whether the person is good or not…that type of change is not going to happen in Ghana again.”

He was certain that there is no better alternative to the current government and if “Ghanaians will vote for the purposes of change, then it should be moving from something that is not good to something that is good but as we speak today, the alternative is worse.”

Since Nigerians voted out their incumbent President, Goodluck Jonathan for his failure to tackle corruption and other major issues affecting Nigerians, especially the fight against Islamist militant group, Boko Haram, there have been predictions that the Mahama-government will also be voted out in Ghana’s 2016 presidential elections since he has woefully failed to resolve the socio-economic challenges facing Ghanaians, notable amongst them being the energy crisis which has led to massive job cuts and collapsed businesses.

The NDC’s General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia in an interview on Wednesday called persons making such predictions as “Lotto forecasters” and served notice that the NDC is not afraid of losing elections.

According to Adams, President John Mahama is “one of the good things that have equally happened to this country in the fourth republic.”

He admitted that despite the economic hardship in the country, President Mahama is doing “so well” in dealing with it just as he frantically working to resolve the energy crisis which has persisted for over three years.

“It is a fact that the energy crisis has come to affect a number of things but here you have a president who is not sleeping on that. We admit it is causing a lot of pain in the system but government s working very hard and we will deal with that problem so it is not the same as in the case of Nigeria,” he assured.

Kofi Adams stressed that the NDC government is doing its best to deal with the energy situation and promised that it cease to exist by 2016 and of course, “Ghanaians will not vote out John Mahama.”
