The Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr has advised politicians and political parties to adopt former President John Agyekum Kufuor’s campaign strategy.

According to him, in this era of COVID-19, political parties cannot hold rallies; adding any political party waiting for COVID-19 to end before campaigning is set for defeat.

Contributing to a panel discussion on Peace FM's morning show ‘Kokrokoo’, Kwesi Pratt Jnr said after studying the political terrain for some time, “I’ve not seen a campaign strategy close to that of former President Kufuor”.

“Personal campaigns are far more significant for me; and that was what former President Kufuor did; he often went to homes; and spoke to the people at a personal level and that is what we need now. But if you are waiting for a big rally at a stadium, defeat is what awaits you,” he opined.
