The New Patriotic Party has served notice that it is prepared to go every extent, using all legitimate means available, to fight any attempt by the failed Mahama-led National Democratic Congress government and its collaborators to employ dubious means to tilt the outcome of the upcoming presidential and parliamentary elections in their favour.

According to the party’s Acting General Secretary, John Boadu, “the bizarre things” that happened during the 2012 general elections, which came to light during the Presidential Election Petition trial, “are serving as a forewarning and a guide to us as we prepare for the elections.”

“This time around, we are not taking chances at all; we are giving serious consideration to any intelligence we gather about the evil plot of the forces we are dealing with and we can assure Ghanaians that we will do everything we can to protect their will, after they have cast their votes for us during this year’s elections. We have a duty to ensure that the outcome of the elections will reflect the true will of the majority of Ghanaians,” Mr Boadu stated.

He was speaking to the Daily Statesman after a meeting with members of the party’s Upper West Regional Executive Committee at Wa, ahead of a national training programme on the upcoming elections.

The Acting NPP General Secretary said his party was poised to win this year’s elections, explaining that all indications pointed to the fact that the people were looking for the change of government and a return of the NPP to power.

“We are winning the elections; there are no two ways about that. The mood of the country is for change, and the change momentum is moving across the country. Now, NDC members are even struggling to hold their party together, even in their World Bank of Volta Region. The Mahama government has failed the people miserably, and they see an Nana Akufo-Addo-led NPP government as the most viable and credible alternative. That is why everywhere we go, Ghanaians have been warning us to protect the votes they are going to cast for us. And we cannot fail them. This means all of us gathered here have an obligation to ensure that the votes are protected, so that the outcome of the elections will reflect the true will of Ghanaians,” he stated.
