Ghanaians have exactly 2years -9months to go to the polls again and decide who becomes the President of the Republic of Ghana.
Though none of the political parties have been declared by the Electoral Commission (EC) to campaign towards the 2016 elections, it seems many including the former Youth Organiser of the main opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Anthony Karbo has already decided on his reason to vote come 2016.
According to him, the brouhaha surrounding his party’s two-time presidential candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s age and decision to run again for President is “unfortunate”. He opined that, Ghanaians after experiencing the abysmal performance of the NDC’s “young” Mahama led administration will decide in 2016 who they want to vote for irrespective of any “sweet campaign talks”.
“Ghanaians are clear in their minds about what will dominate the election in 2016,” he said.
Speaking on NEAT FM’s Me Man Nti political talk show, Anthony Karbo also known as “Afghanistan” expressed disappointment in President John Dramani Mahama for neglecting the Northern region in terms of development. To him, he has confidence in Nana Addo to bridge the gap between the Northern and the Southern sector when elected as president.
“For a Northerner like me, in 2016 I am going to the polls to vote for a president who can come and bridge the gap between the north and the south. I want a president who will make education compulsory for the young ones and revamp our health sector.
“…I will vote for a president who will increase jobs in this country…a president who will solve the ‘dum sor dum sor’ (erratic power supply). The issue about Nana Addo’s age is not necessary. What has age got to do with governance?” he questioned.
