2020 Election Will Be Tough For NDC – Former Nabdam NDC MP

A former National Democratic Congress(NDC) Member of Parliament(MP) for Nabdam constituency in the Upper East region Moses Aduku Asaga has expressed doubts over an easy win for his party and the governing New Patriotic Party in the upcoming elections.

Describing the 2020 elections as one that is close to call, the one time Chief Executive Officer(CEO) of the National Petroleum Authority(NPA) believes Ghana’s two major political parties will face-off in a tight battle for victory.

“For the national elections, I’ll say it is close to call. It is going to be a tight race,” he said on Bolgatanga based A1 Radio monitored by MyNewsGh.com.

When pushed by host of the program Samuel Mbura whether he doubts his party would win the elections, he retorted “But I’ve also not said the NPP will win”.

Mr. Asaga who lost the 2012 parliamentary elections to the New Patriotic Party’s Boniface Gambila stated emphatically that his successor won by virtue of prevailing circumstances at that time, bringing to an end his 16 year reign as Member of Parliament for the Nabdam constituency.

“Boniface Gambila came for only one term and he was removed. It meant that he wasn’t the natural successor of Moses Asaga,” he said.

He stated that “The good people of Nabdam have seen that I worked hard for them because Nabdam never qualified to get a District. Even if we are talking about a constituency we are among the smallest in Ghana. So for you to be given a district meant that their son Moses Asaga was able to lobby parliament and the ministry of local government to get them the District. A few people may dispute this but that is for political nuances”.
