The Greater Accra Regional Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Theophilus Tetteh Chaie, has expressed hope the DC will win the majority of seats in the upcoming elections.
The results of the 2020 December polls he said would favour the NDC because Ghanaians are calling for their return.
”The NDC in Greater Accra will have the majority seats and at the same time, former President John Dramani Mahama will have the majority votes.”
The Greater Accra region in his view has not seen any major transformation or projects since former President Mahama left office.
”Under Mahama we saw massive projects but under the NPP, we have seen nothing,” he added.
”As a region, the NDC has worked and Ghanaians will speak come December 7, 2020. We are going to have majority seats in the Greater Accra Region. ”
The Greater Accra Regional Parliamentary statistics indicate that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) won 21 out of the 34 Parliamentary seats, whilst the National Democratic Congress (NDC) took 13.
The NPP has promised to add 3 more seats in this year’s election to make their seats 24 including that of Odododiodioo which is currently being occupied by incumbent Nii Lante Vanderpuye of the NDC.
But Mr. Chaie says the NPP is only dreaming as the grounds are favourable for them.
