A Political Science Lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi, Dr. Amakye Boateng, has predicted defeat for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in 2020.
He argued strongly that the NDC, which is the largest opposition political party in the country, has not changed or introduced any new strategy that would attract the electorates after their 2016 embarrassing electoral defeat.
“The NDC is not winning election 2020”, Dr. Amakye Boateng, who is one of the finest political science lecturers in the country stated categorically during an interview with Nhyira FM in Kumasi recently.
He said the NDC, which the electorate rejected massively during the 2016 presidential and parliamentary elections, is still the same as the party has not done anything new to show that they indeed want to win power in 2020.
According to him, it takes a lot of hard work and strategies to enable a political party, especially those in opposition, to win presidential and parliamentary elections and he has not seen concrete efforts by the NDC to win power.
Dr. Amakye Boateng said attempts by former President John Dramani Mahama to lead the NDC as flag bearer during the 2020 elections is also not a good sign for the NDC in their efforts to recapture political power in 2020.
