The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) is wining the forthcoming presidential polls slated for December 7, the party’s presidential nominee, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has declared.
“I expect that December 8, 2016, I will be standing somewhere and declaring that Papa Kwesi Nduom and the Progressive People’s Party have won,” he said in an interview on Accra based Citi FM Thursday.
According to the man affectionately called ‘Edwumawura’—he is the only candidate with the requisite skills to fix the excruciating hardship being experienced by Ghanaians under the appalling leadership of President John Mahama.
The PPP, he said has the “character, content, the right policies and leadership that is different from the NDC [National Democratic Congress] and the NPP [New patriotic Party].”
He said the message of the PPP is clear, which is the creation of jobs to solve the unemployment challenges facing the country. “The PPP is needed for all Ghanaians to understand that good change is needed.”
Despite his confidence that he will win the presidential race, Nduom alleged that the elections are being rigged in favour of a particular political party or candidate. As a result, he said “We will not have free and fair elections in 2016, it’s not possible, the scale is not balanced.”
He continued that: “First of all we are still working with a voters register that is flawed it is not just by my thinking the Supreme Court says so, the Electoral Commission themselves admit it. The political parties all know so if you are working with a flawed voters register you can’t have the results that you are looking for.”
“Another one is that the political parties’ law is not being implemented or enforced by the Electoral Commission. Where do people get monies from to campaign? It is not being used. And then we are all seeing day light robbery, our taxpayers’ money being used by John Dramani Mahama and the NDC to campaign; buying things to give to people and so and so forth. When blatantly state resources are being used you can’t have free and fair elections.”
