My News Ghana has sighted a post of the Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Kennedy Osei Nyarko on social media stating emphatically that John Dramani Mahama and the opposition National Democratic Congress will not exceed 48 percent of the total votes.
The minister threatens to quit politics if his prophecy fails.
The Minister who is also the Member of Parliament (MP) for Akim Swedru Constituency in the Eastern Region wrote in a post sighted by My News Ghana “Today is 10th August 2019. If the NDC goes beyond 48% in the next general elections I will quit doing politics indefinitely and concentrate on my private business. Whoever thinks I am just bluffing can mark down today’s date”
However, mid this year, media report has it that Mr. Mahama is optimistic he will beat his closest contender, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo if the elections of 2020 are fairly conducted by the Electoral Commission.
