Speaking exclusively to Kwami Sefa Kayi in an interview on PEACE FM Morning Show ‘Kokrokoo’, Nana Addo said he knew he was going to win when he started campaigning nationwide.
However, he didn’t know it was going to be this ‘huge’
“When I was going round, it was clear to me that I was going to win again but the margin beats my wildest expectations. The enthusiasm for victory 2016 is amazing… they are saying that we are determined to win and you are the one we want to lead us to victory. We are going to give 2016 our best shots because I know we can do better than those who are in charge of the country at the moment”.
Nana Addo hinted that one of his campaign messages for the 2016 election will be ‘free education’. According to him, even though the NDC has adopted it, he is the originator; hence there is no way he is going to let it go.
