The Campaign Manager for the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, Professor Joshua Alabi says the COVID-19 pandemic and the death of Jerry John Rawlings affected the NDC’s 2020 campaign, leading to its defeat at the polls.

Professor Alabi contends that while the pandemic restricted the campaign activities of the NDC, the government had the opportunity to campaign through its COVID interventions such as the free food, water and electricity supply.

Speaking to Channel One News after his re-appointment as the Campaign Manager for the NDC’s flagbearer, John Mahama, Professor Joshua Alabi was hopeful of victory in the impending elections.

“So what this means to me is that it has offered me the opportunity to make a critical analysis of what happened last time and then see how best we can polish what gaps we had and fix that in the 2024 campaign.

“As you are aware, in 2020…We had COVID-19 in this country and we all need to sleep for some time. We had to stay in us. But they were working and for that matter they would campaign and we were indoors.”

“We were released to the campaign around somewhere in July. Yes, we had to set our machinery in place. Of course, setting all your machinery in place from July to December was quite a difficult task for us, but we had to do our best.

“Midway in our campaign again, we had a bad match, and that was the demise of our father, the founding father of the party, John Jerry Rawlings. So we had to truncate our campaign.”
