A group of leading members who have thronged President Akufo-Addo’s house as Ghanaians await the Electoral Commission to declare the results of the 2020 Elections are not happy.
As monitored by YEN.com.gh on TV3’s Election Command Centre, the mood in Akufo-Addo’s house is very somber though the party has claimed that it is leading in the polls.
One of the women clad in white who spoke with TV3 reporter on the ground admitted that the party is disappointed in the figures being churned out so far.
She said the NPP had earlier projected to win the presidential race easily with a 51% vote margin, however, this has not been easy.
According to her, the party is also disappointed because the president worked hard in his first term and expected Ghanaians to vote massively for Akufo-Addo but this has not been the case.
"He went round campaigning. See the work he has done for Ghanaians. We were expecting a massive win, not what we are seeing now," she said.
Nevertheless, she believes Akufo-Addo will still win the elections as the figures have proven.
Giving an illustration in the Akan language, she said that a woman who needs a child does not care if the baby comes as a boy, a girl, or a cripple, all that is needed is a baby. Therefore, they will accept the results that make Akufo-Addo the winner.
