“The NDC in 2016 lost 55 parliamentary seats. By my assessment and going into 2020 we already secure, subject to the elections, about 47 of those seats back but we need to work harder in order to get it,” he said.
Haruna Iddrisu who happens to be the the Tamale South MP, gave a regional breakdown on the seats that have been recaptured in each.
“In the Northern [region] we are closing in on five seats, in the Upper West four seats, Central region about eight seats, one in the Volta region' he said.
He reiterated the fact that former president John Dramani Mahama would be sworn in as president January 7 to right his own wrongs and that of President Akufo-Addo.

In other news, vice President, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia has stated that the Akufo-Addo led New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, would not under any circumstance legalise the commercialisation of motorbikes, popularly known as ‘okada'.
According to Dr Bawumia, the Okada business, is too much of a risky business for the government to consider legalising.
He stated that government would rather give these okada riders the alternative to own new cars on a lease basis in order for them to carry out their activities in a much safer manner.
Bawumia made this known at a ceremony held for the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Volkswagon and BlackIvy for the production of affordable vehicles and houses for Ghanaians.
