The former Deputy Minister for Transport made this known while speaking to Bola Ray on Starr FM stated that for the NPP to rule in government from 2016 to 2024 is normal and shows the beauty of Ghana’s democracy.
She said “Well I don’t really mind if NPP rules for eight (8) years, it’s democracy and really not an issue. When they lost, you can imagine how they felt when we moved into Flagstaff House and I know the feeling… We’ve all been there and that is the beauty of our democracy.”
But Fred Agbenyo, a communications Director at the NDC’s headquarters, said they were overwhelmed with phone calls and complaints after Bawa’s threatening views expressed in the media about the NPP’s reign for eight years.
Supporters of the largest opposition NDC Thursday demanded clarification on Bawa’s stance, as such views to them signaled the party is still not set to rise from the ashes after the big defeat it suffered in the 2016 elections.

But speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme, Mr Agbenyo said the party is strengthened to contest the next elections- 2020 and secure victory, insisting that majority of Ghanaians still have confidence in the NDC party.
“As far as the party leadership is concerned we are well prepared and that, by God’s grace 2020 we’ll come back to power and that is what we are focused on. I cannot even tell whether what the Spokesperson of the former president said was the position of former President Mahama or her own views that she expressed.
That notwithstanding he said: ” I’m sure in 2021 NDC will form the next government”.
