A political science lecturer at the University of Education Winneba, Dr. Isaac Brakoh has described solid, the newly constituted five-member campaign team of the New Patriotic Party for the 2020 general elections.
In his view, the Peter Mac Manu-led team is strategic and capable of delivering victory for the NPP in the December polls.
Mr Mac-Manu who led the party to win the last elections in 2016 was chosen again this week to lead the re-election bid campaign of President Nana Akufo-Addo in the upcoming presidential and parliamentary election.
He will be supported by Dr. Mustapha Hamid, Lord Oblitey Commey, John Boadu and Sammi Awuku.
Commenting on the choice of the party on Onua FM’s morning show Friday, Dr Brakoh observed the track record of the individuals in the 2016 general elections proves they are capable of canvassing enough votes to retain the NPP in power in the 2020 elections.
He told host of the show Nana Yaw Opare that maintaining Peter Mac-Manu as chairman of the campaign team is a step in the right direction.
“Peter Mac-Manu in 2016 general elections worked splendidly in bringing the party to power regardless of the incumbency advantage of the National Democratic Congress (NDC). Now that they [NPP] are in power, he is trusted to do more”.
Touching on achievements and political competency of Sammy Awuku, Dr. Brakoh described the now NPP National Organiser as a workhorse who speaks without blemish, noting he is well admired in the country.
That, the lecturer held, will help a lot in his campaign task and activities in winning many hearts, especially that of the youth.
He said Sammy Awuku is capable of doing amazing job in ensuring a remarkable victory for NPP.
Dr. Brakoh has meanwhile urged the NPP campaign team to as early as possible, map out strategies in intensifying their campaign message since the largest NDC is equally determined to win back power.
