NDC will return to government in 2021 – Asiedu Nketiah

The General Secretary of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has said the party will bounce back strongly to win the 2021 polls after a humiliating defeat on Wednesday.

Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) defeated incumbent president John Mahama by close to a million vote, the highest vote margin in the fourth republic.

he Electoral Commission (EC) said Akufo-Addo won by 5, 716, 026 (53.85%) while president Mahama secured 4, 713, 277 (44.40%).

“If you retreat from a battle it does not mean defeat, we will return in 2020”,  Nketia aka General Mosquito said.

He added: “That is the verdict of the masses so if it is the verdict, nobody can challenge it and Ghana is bigger than any personal interest or institution so the country must move on.”

He made the comments when the chair of the EC was set to declare Akufo-Addo as the president-elect.

He noted that the party went into the election hoping to secure a second term for the president but the electorate thought otherwise.

He disclosed that the party will regroup and strategise for the next election.
