President John Mahama says the New Patriotic Party’s chances of winning this year’s election is slim because the National Democratic Congress are the silent majority.
Addressing party supporters at Kpone as part of his tour of the Greater Accra Region for his second term bid, president Mahama said: “NDC, we are the silent majority because we don’t speak much. If you look at the NPP, they talk a lot.
“When you meet one or two of them, they can talk more than the crowd here.
“But the NDC, the silent majority always surprises them during elections. They wonder where the party gets its vote but our supporters are there.”
The president also touted his achievement, highlighting his Community Day Schools.
“We made the most massive investment in the road sector in the history of Ghana. Not only that, if look at education we’ve done the same thing,” he said.
“If you look at the education sector, it is the same thing. In Greater Accra, we are building ten new community senior high schools to enable our children to attend school,” he added.
President added: “Yesterday, I went to inaugurate one at Frafraha, Kwabenya and I am aware that the one at Kpone will be completed soon. So when the time is due I will come again and I come and inaugurate that one too.”
Meanwhile, his main rival, Nana Akufo-Addo is alleging that the president plans to reduce fuel price in a “desperate” move to win votes.
“We’re being told that very soon, they are going to reduce the petroleum (energy sector) levy (on the price buildup of petroleum prices),” he said on Friday whilst addressing students of the Sunyani Polytechnic.
