Forget About 2020 Elections : American Research Firm To Mahama

Published

on

The presidential flagbearer for the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) John Dramani Mahama who is hoping to be elected as the President for the second time has been asked by an American research firm to forget about winning this year’s election.

According to American rating agency Fitch Solutions, the current president Nana Akuffo Addo and the NPP would win the December 2020 polls hands down.

In its Macroeconomic Update of Sub Saharan Africa countries, it said the supervision of a prudent economy in the last couple of years will benefit the ruling party in power.

The senior Country Risk Analyst in the Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) team where he specializes in West African markets, William Atwell, said

“The elections of course is a key component of the outlook for the rest of 2020; former President John Mahama is going to be taking on the incumbent Nana Akufo-Addo. There isn’t too much to differentiate between the two in terms of the broad policy-tax reforms- and we aren’t expecting a big shift either way in terms of the regulatory outlook for Ghana next year.”

“But in terms of who we expect to win the elections, really the incumbent [NPP] is expected to benefit from the fact the economy has been fairly well managed for the past several years. And our base case scenario suggests that he will remain in the office for another term.”

The nation has barely 62 days more to go for the December 7 elections.

But Political analyst Michael Ebo Amoah, has stated that dynamics in this year’s polls are different from that of 2016, hence, no political party especially the NDC and NPP should take the election for granted or be complacent.

“…Is a do or die affair because both the current president and former president have defeated each other before, he explained.

His comments comes after Sammi Awuku the National Organizer of the NPP admitted the 2020 polls and victory for the NPP will not come on a silver platter whereas the president and his vice have both stated the polls would be easy for the NPP considering their achievements.

Co-Founder of collapsed UT Bank, Prince Kofi Amoabeng has finally clarified his controversial conviction about Christian tithing, says he didn’t condemn the act. He said he just doesn’t believe in it.

According to Mr. Amoabeng, although he doesn’t believe in tithing, he also does not condemn Christians who do believe in it and practice it.

Mr. Kofi Amoabeng said he still believes God has blessed him enough that his blessings have also impacted the lives of many.

“God has loved me probably more than everybody. My life has been full, I mean he has lifted me amongst men and he’s used me to impact a lot of lives and I’m so proud and grateful about it. Unfortunately, people believe I don’t go to church and I don’t believe in God but I don’t care about it because it’s between me and my God, I don’t have to impress you about it, I don’t tell you how I relate to my God it’s up to me.” He said.

Napoli are set to rename the San Paolo stadium after the late Diego Maradona.

The Argentina football legend, who was the manager of Argentinian club side Gimnasia passed away aged 60 on Wednesday, November 25th, after suffering a cardiac arrest in his home country.

During his time with the Italian side, Napoli, he won the Serie A title in 1987 and 1990, along with an Italian Cup in 1987 and a Uefa Cup in 1991 during a six-year stint in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Maradona, regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time, was the inspiration for Argentina’s World Cup success in Mexico in 1986, winning the Golden Ball as the tournament’s best player.

He also led the country to the final of the 1990 tournament in Italy although his international playing career ended in shame when he failed a drug test at the 1994 World Cup in the United States.

Speaking with French sports channel RMC Sport on Thursday, November 26, Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis said: “We can consider the idea of calling our stadium San Paolo-Diego Armando Maradona’ after the Argentine legend, who scored 115 times in 259 appearances for the club.

“We can consider the idea of calling our stadium San Paolo-Diego Armando Maradona,” De Laurentiis told French sports channel RMC Sport.

“We are already putting it together this morning, taking the first steps to dedicate Naples stadium to Maradona,” De Magistris said.

“Its a process but it will be a quick process, because when there is such a strong desire there’s nothing that will hold us up.”

The Mayor added: “We’re hoping to make it coincide with the resumption of games with fans.”
