These comments came as NDC flagbearer John Mahama called for vigilance during the polls.

Mahama, who just unveiled his full presidential ticket, has taken his Building Ghana Tour to the Greater Accra Region as he makes a bid to become President for a second term.

"We can do all the campaigning we want but if we are not vigilant on the day and don’t cover every polling station with eagle eyes, you will do everything you can and not achieve the objective that you want.”

The economic crisis under the NPP government has allowed Mahama and the NDC to gain more favour in the eyes of Ghanaians as the campaigns heat up.

Corruption scandals under the Akufo-Addo government have left people reminiscing positively about life under the Mahama administration pre-2017.
