The Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Bernard Allotey Jacobs, has said that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) will fail in its quest to win the 2016 election because of overconfidence.
He said the NPP had become too confident of winning, noting that that would make them lose the 2016 general election.
He was speaking at the inauguration of an NDC working committees to strategise for an overwhelming win in the region in 2016.
“Politics has its own dynamics and the NPP would be defeated again,” he said.
He indicated that the affirmative action was the beginning of the defeat for the NPP. Committees
The NDC branch in the Central Region, he said, had inaugurated working committees to work relentlessly to ensure victory for the party in 2016.
The committees, including research, communications, political and legal, have eminent old politicians of the party in the region, including Dr Ato Quarshie and Mr George Kuntu Blankson, and the former Ashanti Regional Minister, Dr Samuel Sarpong, among others behind them.
They include cadres of the party, those removed from office and those who have lost one election or another.
Mr Allotey Jacobs said the party was committed to winning all 23 parliamentary seats in the region.
He stated that considering the massive infrastructural development the Mahama government had embarked on in the region, the NDC would win the elections on merit in the Central Region.
A leading member of the NDC, Madam Faustina Nelson, said it was time to unite and work to win 2016.
The Central Regional Minister, Mr Aquinas Tawiah Quansah, urged all members of the NDC to understand that the election of 2016 would be a difficult one.
He stated that politics was a game of numbers and urged all to come together to work for victory.
The Deputy General Secretary of the NDC, Mr George Lawson, said 2016 must be a victory election for the NDC and urged all committees to work hard to retain the Mahama government in office.
