He said the divisions and internal squabbles within the NPP will spell doom for the country if voted into power.

Speaking at a rally at Anweaso in the Adansi Asokwa constituency of the Ashanti region, the President stressed the NDC is the only party stable enough to govern the young oil-producing country.

“Today, the party that’s ready to govern this country is the NDC. Why am I saying so? Today, NDC is the most united and well organised party than any other party in Ghana. Look at what’s going on in NPP. NPP is divided into two factions.

“If that party is rife with these divisions even in opposition, what will happen if we give them power? They are not ready to govern, so let’s continue to leave them in opposition for them to take their time to put their house in order, after 2021 then they come back for Ghanaians to consider them.”
