Political Scientist, Dr. Richard Amoako-Baah says the leadership of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) should consider dissolving the party if it loses the 2016 presidential elections.
The Head of Department of History and Political Studies of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) says the governing National Democratic Congress is currently not in the shape to win an election against the NPP.
“This is the most vulnerable moment for the NDC… If the NDC manages to win [2016 elections] then you may as well dissolve NPP,” he said on on Joy FM, Monday, October 20.
He said the 2016 Presidential poll “is a critical election which NPP must win”.
Delegates of the opposition party on Saturday October 18, elected for the third time in succession veteran politician, Nana Akufo-Addo as flagbearer for the 2016 elections. Nana Akufo-Addo recorded a resounding victory by polling 117,413 votes representing 94.35 percent of total votes cast.
His closest challenger, Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen managed a paltry 5,908 votes representing only 4.75% of total valid votes cast.
The presidential primaries were preceded by internal wrangling with some bigwigs accusing the leadership of siding with one of the contenders.
Having come out of the fiercely contested polls, Dr. Amoako-Baah says the leadership of the party has no excuse but to mend the cracks in the party and beat the incumbent NDC.
