Donald Trump has won the 45th presidential election in the United State, Ghanaians are also getting on their marks to also go to the polls come December 7th. The shocking victory of Donald has raised a lot of questions as to whether the NPP who has always been aligned with the Republicans in terms of policies are also going for the ultimate. Recently, Chief Executive Officer and publisher of Ovation International, a magazine that has given publicity to people from all over the world, Chief Dele Momodu has stated that US Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is promising Americans what president Mahama is doing here in Ghana, which also shows how the NDC is somehow also linked to the Republican.
For nothing at all, both parties in their respective countries are in the minority and they make the most noise. For example, during the “Obama care” debate on the senate floor in America, a Republican Senator, Ted Cruz, stood on the floor for almost 22 hours and all he said was nonsense and a complete waste of time. Similarly, during a press statement after the NPP had filed an election petition at the Supreme Court, all they said was nonsense and a complete waste of time. According to the NPP, they won the election petition even before the court started to hear the case.
Below are some of the key similarities between the NPP and the Republican.
- TRUMP IS PROMISING JOBS, NANA ADDO IS ALSO PROMISING JOBS
- SOUND OF GUN SHOT AT TRUMP CAMPAIGN, STONES THROWN AT NANA AT RALLY
- TRUMP CLAIMS TO STAND FOR THE PEOPLE OF AMERICA, NANA ALSO STANDS FOR GHANAIANS
- SYMBOL OF THE REPUBLICAN & NPP IS ELEPHANT, INTERESTING
- TRUMP SAYS HE WILL CREATE MORE FACTORIES, NANA PROMISES ONE FACTORY ONE DISTRICT
- BOTH NPP AND REPUBLICAN HAS SAME PARTY COLOURS; RED, BLUE AND WHITE.
- BOTH PARTIES ARE IN OPPOSITION
- BOTH PARTIES DON’T HAVE ALTERNATIVE SUGGESTIONS AND SOLUTIONS TO THE RULING GOVERNMENT
- LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE MAY LIKE BOTH PARTIES BUT NOT THEIR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES ie TRUMP & NANA.
- SOME VETERAN MEMBERS OF BOTH PARTIES DON’T SUPPORT THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES EG Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker OF U.S and PAUL AFOKO OF GHANA.
Is the victory of the Republicans a hope for the New Patriotic Party?
