Presidential hopeful Ekwow Spio-Garbrah has said President Akufo-Addo will be a one-term President.
Mr.Spio-Garbrah told Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Wednesday, November 1, that the unfortunate death of former president Mills created an “instant one-term type scenario” and that particular incident made it easier for “Ghanaians to shorten the 8-year term to 4-year term”.
“This fourth republic, we started off with 8-year government, Ghanaians got used to 8 years under President Rawlings and Kufour but unfortunately the death of President Mills created an instant one-term type scenario for President Mills and I believe that particular incident made it easier for Ghanaians to shorten the 8-year that President Mahama would have enjoyed to term a to 4-year term, President Mills became a one-term President and President Mahama as well”.
Asked if that was going to be the same for President Akufo-Addo, he said “it will be a one-term for the current President as well”.
Mr. Garbrah also added that 2020 will be a year for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to recapture power from the governing New Patriotic Party, disclosing his intention to contest for the presidency when the NDC opens nominations.
