NDC’s hope of winning 70% parliamentary seats in 2020 akin to daydreaming - Obiri Boahen

- Nana Obiri Boahen has refuted claims by the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, that the NDC will win 70% of parliamentary seats in the 2020 general election

- The Tamale South MP says the NDC is very likely to regain the Savelugu, Nanton, Saboba, Tolon, Wulensi, Bimbilla and Gushegu seats in parliament

- The NDC lost a lot of their strong hold seats to the NPP in the 2016 elections

Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen, has urged the opposition NDC to stop “daydreaming” and hoping the minority will win 70% of the seats in parliament in the 2020 elections.

According the tough speaking Obiri Boahen, the National Democratic Congress can never gain majority in the House in the next parliamentary elections.

He [ Haruna Iddrisu} can continue to hallucinate. He can continue to daydream. Even picking, filling and submitting forms have become a nightmare for the NDC and they are talking about winning majority seats in Parliament. We will give them a sound beating [in the 2020 elections].
