President Nana Akufo-Addo has predicted a landslide victory for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2020 election.

Despite persistent complaints of hardship, the President believes the achievements of his government in the last two years are enough to secure the NPP another term in office.

Speaking at the commissioning of the Anyaa LA school complex at Anyaa as part of his tour of the Greater Accra Region, he said:

“I will ask for your continuous support for my party and for my government, for it is that support that strengthens me in the work I am doing.”

“[For] the one million difference in 2016, we are going to increase it on the basis of the work that I am doing… All those who said that I would not be able or I could not fulfill my promises, I hope that one by one, they are seeing that they were wrong.”

President Akufo-Addo is yet to declare any intent to run in for the presidency in 2020.

But former President John Mahama has urged the 74-year-old  to contest as the New Patriotic Party’s candidate so he can face him again.

President Akufo-Addo overcame John Mahama with 53.85% of the total valid votes cast, against the NDC’s 44.4%.

Akufo-Addo’s victory was described as historic in many ways, as it was the first time a sitting President was beaten in an election in that manner.

It was also the first time a total vote difference of more than 1 million was recorded, between the winner and his closest contender any election in Ghana.

Observers attributed the overwhelming election victory to public disaffection for the NDC due to growing impunity and the perception of corruption.
