How can an umbrella replace an elephant? - Mac Manu

The Campaign Manager of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Peter Mac Manu has stated that there is no way Ghanaians will replace an elephant with an umbrella.

In an interview with Araba Koomson on Wednesday, he indicated that owing to the difference in symbols of both parties, it is unlikely that voters will mistake the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Mahama for Nana Akufo-Addo.

“We do not anticipate anybody going to vote for NPP going down to vote for NDC, the symbols are different. How can an umbrella replace an elephant?”

In view of this, the NPP is not bothered by the close placement of the 2 parties on the ballot paper.

Peter Mac Manu also added that the NPP government has sent out volunteers into the various constituencies with a dummy ballot to educate the electorate.

“We believe strongly that the dummy ballot paper we are going to do and take across the length and breadth of the country will minimize rejected votes”.

The Campaign Manager indicated that the incumbent government will see a massive increase in votes beyond their results in the 2016 election.

The Party’s victory according to him, will be as a result of Akufo-Addo’s good works.
