News Update and Headlines – News Africa: ‘Ghanaians Preparing Their Thumbs to Vote You out in 2020’ – Mahama Tells Akufo-Addo

Former President John Dramani Mahama says the entire country has been “suffering” since the New Patriotic Party (NPP) assumed office.

According to him, Ghanaians are, therefore, preparing their thumbs to vote out the Akufo-Addo government in 2020.

He made the comment during an address at the 100-year anniversary of the E.P Church at Dabala in the Volta Region on Sunday.

“As for the hardship you are going through today, I’m not the one to tell you, all of us are suffering our own hardships…and we are preparing our thumbs for 2020 so that we can change the change,” Mahama said.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) suffered a heavy loss to the NPP during the 2016 polls.

This meant that Mahama became the first-ever incumbent President to serve for just one term in the history of Ghana’s Fourth Republic.

However, the NDC flagbearer believes God allowed the NPP to win power so that Ghanaians could appreciate the work done by the NDC.

According to him, Ghanaians now know the difference between the NDC and the NPP, having experienced both parties.

News Update and Headlines – News Africa: Raila Ups The Ante In Hunt For Votes In His Kibra Backyard

Jolted by fears of a loss in a constituency that has been described as his “bedroom,” Orange Democratic Movement leader Raila Odinga has taken charge of last-minute campaigns for the party’s candidate in the upcoming Kibra by-election.

Although campaigns for ODM candidate Bernard “Imran” Okoth was initially to be coordinated by the party’s Nairobi branch chairman George Aladwa, Mr Odinga is said to have been forced to personally take charge of the vote-hunt amid worries that Deputy President William Ruto’s campaigns for Jubilee Party candidate MacDonald Mariga had made unexpected inroads in the constituency.

His move is said to have also been influenced by internal polls conducted by both the Jubilee and ODM parties that portrayed a scenario of a possible split of votes among opposition coalition National Super Alliance (Nasa) candidates.

And, in a change of strategy, the former prime minister has embraced boardroom and town hall meetings, a break from his past preference for political rallies that attract multitudes.

On Saturday, Mr Odinga led a meeting involving members of the Kamba community in which governors Charity Ngilu (Kitui) and Alfred Mutua (Machakos) pledged to support the ODM party candidate. A day before that, on Friday, Mr Odinga led another campaign meeting involving members of the Gusii community who are voters in Kibra constituency.
