Ghanaians will vote religiously – Sammy Awuku

National Youth Organizer for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku has said that the 2016 elections will be won by an emphatic win and not by a small margin.

According to Mr. Awuku, Ghanaians are demanding for either change or continuity and for that matter will vote in their numbers for the winner of the polls. He says the NPP believes this year’s election will not be a contest of small margins, the winner will carry the day in a landslide victory.

“We as a political party are clear in our minds that if elections are held today, and we have been vindicated by the various polls whether people believe them or not. We’ve been vindicated by the fact that Ghanaians are going to vote religiously in this year’s polls,” the NPP youth leader stated on GH Today.

“Whoever will win, will not win by a point zero or point something. The person will win by an emphatic win,” Awuku emphasized.

He continued: “If people are comfortable with the state of affairs in our country now; if they believe that the escalating hardships should continue; if they believe that the high cost of living should prevail; if they believe that the allowances of teacher trainees and nurse trainees that has been scrapped is still okay to be scrapped and the high unemployment situation, that status quo should remain they will vote for President Mahama to continue.”

Mr. Awuku however said Ghanaians who believe in a better life and want an improvement in the current economic situations prevailing in the country now will vote for the New Patriotic Party.

“But if they want a better life, if they believe that they need jobs, if they believe that this ‘ekikimi’ electricity bill we’re having there should be a paradigm shift, if they also strongly believe that well they deserve a better living condition they will also vote for change.”
