2016 Polls: Ghana’s Foreign Minister Says NDC Is Ready


The governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) is ready and prepared for this year’s presidential and parliamentary polls, Hanna Tetteh, Minister of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, has said.

According to her, the party had started campaigning ahead of the elections and it would get vigorous as the day of the polls drew close.

President John Dramani Mahama is embarking on a nationwide tour dubbed: ‘Accounting to the People’ to interact with the citizenry and is also expected to inspect ongoing projects in the country. He has already toured the Western, Volta, Greater Accra, Brong Ahafo, Central, and Ashanti regions. He is expected to tour the entire country.

Speaking on TV3’s Hot Issue on Saturday July 2, Hanna Tetteh, who doubles as the Member of Parliament for Awutu-Senya West constituency and seeking re-election said: “Every election has its challenges based on the circumstances in which our country finds itself, both in terms of domestic challenges and also looking at the externals that affect us, whether we like it or not”.

“For any party, at any time when legally, conditionally, the election is due, the issue is not whether you are ready or not, the issue is that it is time to go to the country for the election and you have to prepare to go to the country for an election.

“And the National Democratic Congress has already started preparing, has already started campaigning, and you will see we will do much more vigorously as we get closer to our election date.”

Meanwhile, President Mahama’s main contender, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), is also embarking on a nationwide tour as part of his campaign ahead of the elections.
