The President, John Dramani Mahama is accusing the opposition NPP of adopting abusive tactics and publishing false information against the governing party in their bid to win power.
He said the NPP was showing clear signs of desperation.
President Mahama has resumed campaigning after a three-day break to attend to the Melcom shop disaster which claimed about 17 lives. The president began his tour of the Upper East Region Saturday where he told supporters that the NDC was set to defeat the opposition New Patriotic Party in the December polls.
“God is on our side, our opponents are desperate and so they have resorted to abuse, and publishing false information about us, but what they don’t know is that who Jah bless no man curse.
“And so come Dec 7, 2012 I know in my heart and by the grace of God that we are going to win a one touch victory, and we will continue the good work that was started by our blessed and revered Prof. John Evans Atta Mills.”
In another development, President John Mahama says US President Barack Obama’s recent electoral victory points to a victory for the NDC in the December polls.
President Obama was re-elected last week in a tightly contested election against Republican candidate Mitt Romney.
Addressing a rally at Tongo in the Talensi District of the Upper East Region, President Mahama likened the Republican Party to the opposition NPP and projected a loss for them as well.
“The elephant in America was chased into the bush and that is significant because its cousin lives here in Ghana. In 2008 when the American elephant was chased into the bush we also chased that elephant into the bush.
“In 2012 that American elephant has been chased into the bush again so I know on 7th December, its cousin here is going back into the bush,” President Mahama maintained.
