Corruption, hardship will kick out NPP in 2020 – Baba Jamal

With about 15 months to 2020 general elections, opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is already pointing out to some determining factors which will “topple” the current government.

For NDC, hardship and corruption under President Akufo-Addo will be among some key factors that will lead to New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) defeat.

Legal team member of NDC, Baba Jamal said NPP will lose 2020 general elections on the grounds of corruption, arrogance, disrespect, unemployment, increase in crime rate among other negative things happening in the country.

He said, the current administration is equally engaging corrupt practices which is detrimental to Ghana’s development.

“The capital letters for corruption is Nana Akufo-Addo. Prior to 2016, NPP continuously labeled the then government under Ex-President John Mahama as corrupt and assured Ghanaians of running a corrupt-free government should they be voted into power. What are we seeing today?” he asked.

According to him, fuel prices, introduction of taxes and other factors have increased the suffering of the ordinary Ghanaian.

“If you think you’re better off under this government, then there will be no point to complain. However, if the exact opposite is what is being experienced, there is no need to maintain this government come 2020,” he advised.

Speaking to Adom News, Baba Jamal urged Ghanaians to kick out this government in 2020.

He, however, cautioned government to desist from any attempt to manipulate the 2020 elections in its favour.

“We are only ready for fair contest. Any attempt on their side to turn things around will not be met with easy hands,” he warned.
