The 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections is one that will go down in the annals of Ghana's history books.
The polls would definitely leave the two major political parties with a lot of thinking and hard work do to, as both of them have really learnt a lot from it.
The Member of Parliament, MP, for Assin Central Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has underscored the need for President Akufo-Addo to reward Ashantis.
According to him, the Ashanti regional voters saved the president from loosing his seat by massively voting for him to remain in power.
Kennedy Agyapong said the president has to make sure most Ashantis get appointments in his next government as reward for their loyalty.
“I congratulate the people of the Ashanti Region, if it were not for them the NPP would have probably suffered defeat. Akufo Addo should give them a lot of ministerial appointments and more development should go there," he said.
Accoding to Kennedy Agyapong, the Ashanti Region gave the NPP over 1,142,000 which canceled the votes garnered by the NDC in almost 7 regions.
He added that some areas in Ghana like the Oti region are ungrateful after government made the area a region but they voted against the NPP.
Agyapong was, however, of the view that, the party should be politically skewed and maintain their strongholds first before they look out for others.
Akufo-Addo polled a little over 51 percent while Mahama got a little over 47 percent of the valid votes cast.
The EC's declaration came after the NDC held several press conferences claiming to have won the elections, suggesting there were efforts by the government to change the results.
