The presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the 2012 elections, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, says he is still looking up to God for spiritual guidance and directions regarding his political future.

His comments follow speculations that the two-time defeated presidential candidate had abandoned any thoughts of a third bid for the presidency.

Nana Akufo-Addo announced at a news conference minutes after the Supreme Court dismissed a petition he and two others had brought challenging the outcome of the 2012 presidential elections that he was going to take a break from politics.

Since then nothing has been heard about his ambitions but newspaper publications last week suggested that he had bowed out of politics for good.

However, addressing supporters of the NPP in London over the weekend, Nana Akufo-Addo reiterated his decision to announce his political future when he returns from the UK where he is taking a rest.

He told the supporters that God’s guidance would determine the decision he would make, stressing the need for the rank and file of the NPP to stay united and contribute ideas towards the party’s progress.

Meanwhile, former Executive Director of the pro-NPP think-tank, Danquah Institute, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has said Nana Akufo-Addo is the best bet to win the 2016 election for the opposition party.

In an article published Monday, Mr. Otchere-Darko said publications suggesting that the former flagbearer would not run again were false and must be disregarded.

“Indeed, I believe that after all that he has heard and seen, after all the calculations and analysis of the current social and economic situation in Ghana, the state of the NPP and its prospects and challenges of electoral victory in three years time, Nana Akufo-Addo is more likely to offer himself to lead the opposition party for the 2016 presidential election than not. This is my expectation. Nothing more, nothing less.”
