‘’Ghanaians are tired of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP). Ghanaians want to change. Ghanaians believe that the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is the answer,’’ to the challenges confronting them, Mr. Sylvester Mensah, has posited.
He made the remarks in an interview with Kwame Tutu on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm.
The reasons for this statement was that it has been observed that at first, about 90% voted blindly for political parties. But upon a critical look and political dynamics, Ghanaians are now looking at parties with good manifestoes, their platform, the one who leads the party and also what the party has to offer.
The finance expert said, in 2016, majority of Ghanaians voted blindly for the NPP but they have now realized that the NPP is ”super incompetent’.
He asserted, Ghanaians have decided already and come 2020, they will vote the NPP out of office and vote in the NDC led by him. ‘’The political dynamics in this country is changing today…Our electorates are currently looking at their individuals contesting, they are looking at the hope you are providing, your vision for the country and that is what the electorates are looking at. Our electorates are also getting interested in who and who are managing the political parties.
The ground is shifting very fast,’’ he suggested. He said, no political party is guaranteed eight years and Ghanaians have decided to vote the NPP out of office in 2020.
‘’It is important that we redefine our political strategies as individuals and political parties. It is important that we re-focus on what the electorates consider useful and necessary.
We need to really understand what their expectations are and re-focus. The NDC would be winning the 2020 elections. No political party is guaranteed 8 years, we could see clearly that, Ghanaians have taken a decision even though early in the day that, the NPP deserves just one term and in 2020, the NDC is coming into power.’’
