I want a rematch – Mahama begs Akufo-Addo
Written by Saltfmonline.com on October 22, 2018
Former President Mahama has called on President Akufo-Addo to make a decision to contest as the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) presidential candidate in the 2020 polls.
President Akufo-Addo is yet to announce if he will contest for the flagbearship position of the NPP ahead of the 2020 general elections but former president Mahama has urged him to strongly consider contest.
Speaking to party delegates in the Nkoranza South constituency on his nationwide tour to garner support ahead of the NDC’s national elections, Mr. Mahama said the 2020 polls will be the final decider between him and President Akufo Addo.
“I am begging President Nana Akufo Addo to contest in the next polls. In boxing, the first fight is called the title fight. If you win that fight and your opponent wants another one, it is called a rematch. This is similar to what happened in 2012 when I beat Nana Addo in the polls. In 2016 however, I was defeated. In the 2020 elections, it will be tantamount to a decider in boxing since we have both won the election once, the next poll will determine who the champion really is.”
