- The president gaffed on the introduction of Nii Lante Bannerman at the Mantse Agbona arena
- Nana Akufo Addo rather switched from Nii Lante Bannerman to Nii Lantey Vanderpue
- All political parties will not be campaign on the 6th of December
President Akufo Addo gaffed on his final campaign trail at Mantse Agbona in the Odododiodio Constituency in Accra when he referred to the NPP’s contesting member of parliament for the constituency - Nii Lante Bannerman - as Nii Lante Vanderpuye.
It all happened when Nana Addo was introducing all parliamentary contestants to hundreds of party supporters on the campaign grounds.
“Even as you vote for me on December 7, I implore you to vote for our contestant for the Odododiodio Constituency, Nii Lantey Vanderpuye!...Nii Lante Vanderpuye … Eei ….Nii Lante Bannerman, vote for Nii Lante Bannerman. What do we need Nii Lante Vanderpuye for? Vote Nii Lante Vanderpuye,” the president stated in Twi.
The former president, John Mahama, was also seen on his campaign trail at the Anyaa Sowutuom asking his parliamentary candidate where he was speaking from. It has been a tough campaign season for both parties.
Stakes are so high for both candidates. A win for Akufo Addo will virtually retire John Dramani Mahama in his ambition for the presidency. A win for John Mahama will also make Akufo Addo the first President in the history of the NPP to be a one-term president.
The University of Ghana department of political science, in a recent poll, declared President Akufo Addo as the probable winner of the 2020 elections. John Mahama of the NDC rubbished the poll stating he is still confident of emerging victorious.
Ahead of the polls on Monday, December 7, The Election security task force, estimated at 6000 personnel, has been deployed across the country ahead of the polls on Monday.
Ghana has been praised across the world for peaceful elections since the 4th Republic. The country has often been set aside as a reference point of successful elections and peaceful transition of power. To this end, international and local election observers are looking out for “the peaceful Ghana we all know”.
The Ghana Police Service says voters who come over the polling station with party branded face masks will not be allowed to vote. Public relations officer of the Ghana Police Service, explained this is part of measures to keep the election process safe.
