2012 presidential candidate for Convention People’s Party(CPP) Dr Abu Sakara Forster has asserted that Ghanaians will retain the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) led by President Nana Akufo-Addo, stressing that the National Democratic Congress(NDC) will be rejected just as it was rejected in 2016.
“As it becomes clear that Nana and NPP are in a firm position to win the 2020 election defections and declarations from the wood works will emerge with increased frequency
It is now that you will discern the opportunists, charlatans and mercenaries some of who are so called competitors.
What is clear is what we have known all along. It was only ever a two horse race with a slight chance that a wounded and tired NDC still ridden by a rejected candidate was the only other option,” he said on social media.
It is his contention that the NDC and NPP remain the only parties strong enough to win elections given the large amount of money required to have an independent alternative.
“The voters are not enthused or amused by these two options but what for do?
An independent alternative cannot be marshalled by wishful thinking, without significant amounts of money (millions of USD). That is the naked truth!” He stressed.
Dr Abu Sakara Forster is of the firm conviction that given that only the two parties remain, one must vote for the one that most likely will work in the national interest, insisting that the NPP has an edge over the NPP.
“So with all strategies and efforts for an independent reform based agenda spent, we are realistically looking at Mr Nana of Mr Mahama.
Either way the odds favor Nana but the real question is what do either of them offer that would justify your effort to vote?
Which one would better serve the national interest objectives and how would one secure commitment in return for one’s vote.
We must each think about this reality as we go to vote based on our individual choices.
We should not be easily swayed by wanting to be with the winner without consideration of the desired outcomes,” he explained.
Dr Sakara Forster had served as the CPP’s running mate in 2008. He became the party’s candidate in 2012.
