The National Democratic Congress (NDC), according to Mark Oliver Kevor, the Eastern Regional Chairman, would employ all necessary means to oust the New Patriotic Party (NPP) from power in 2024.
He was responding to the incendiary statements made over the weekend in Kwahu by Bryan Acheampong, MP for the Abetifi Constituency.
Mark Oliver Kevor spoke to party supporters during a tour by NDC flagbearer hopeful, John Dramani Mahama to the Eastern Region.
“The NPP is self-aware the time has come for John Mahama to be President, so it has resorted to intimidation. The NPP is threatening not to hand over power to the NDC in 2024. As regional chairman, I believe I have the support of other executives at the various levels, and so I say, we will also devise any means to snatch power from the governing NPP to John Mahama. We are ready as a party to match the NPP boot for boot.”
John Dramani Mahama, flagbearer hopeful of the NDC, says the party is unmoved by Bryan Acheampong’s statement that the NPP won’t ever cede power to the NDC.
Speaking to party delegates at the Akuapem North and South Constituencies at Akropong in the Eastern region on Tuesday, Mr. Mahama said that the NDC would not downplay the role of God in the 2024 elections, despite the NPP’s stance.
He claimed that God had already predetermined the results of the 2024 elections and that nothing anyone could do would change that.
“Don’t pay attention to some of the things being said by some people, because it is God’s plan, I go to Church and I have faith that when I kneel and pray, God speaks to me sometimes. God told me that it is our time, and He has already given us the power”.
“When God speaks, no one can change it so let’s continue to pray and believe in Ghanaians that whatever God has put in place will come to pass.”
