Peter Mac Manu selected again as NPP’s campaign manager for the 2020 elections
The 2016 campaign Manager of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Peter Mac Manu will be leading his party’s efforts to win yet another election this year.
This was disclosed by the General Secretary of the party, John Boadu while interacting with Nana Yaw Kesseh on ‘The Platform’ program on Peace FM.
According to him, the NPP is not changing the ‘winning team’, hence the decision to maintain their former National Chairman, Mac Manu as the campaign Manager.
” . . we are not changing the winning team; Mac Manu will lead our campaign team and when the full list comes out, it is going to be solid,” he said.
Mac Manu was the National Chairman of the party from December 2005 to February 2010.

Security Analyst and Executive Director of Irbad Security Consult Alhaji Irbad Ibrahim has stated that he will choose the New Patriotic Party(NPP) over the National Democratic Congress(NDC) if he finally decides to launch into partisan politics.
While citing President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s decisive leadership in the management of COVID-19 as bases for his interest to join the NPP, the popular young security analyst wrote that “A leader has to be decisive. A leader has to damn all pressure and take decisions that bring relief to the poor. It is not difficult to sense the back-room bickering and show of dissatisfaction in the lead up to the historic announcement last night. Nana Addo has not impressed me in the implementation of some of his policies but his bold move last night was a game-changer.”
According to him, though he has recently been contemplating and consulting over starting his political career, he has been caught in between settling for the opposition National Democratic Congress or the governing New Patriotic Party adding that “The NPP and the NDC behave like tribes and I am an unhinged and non-conformist young man who wants to remain a free thinker devoid of control because I belong to a tribe or clan of people or an ideology.”
He stated further that “If I were to join a party in the next 24 hours, then it would be Nana Addo’s party. But I won’t take political decisions now. It may not even be in the era of the current generation of leaders on both sides of the political aisle.”
“To sum it up, Nana Addo has made a very good impression on me in the past few hours. I wish him and his team well.”
Your Excellency, people are really adhering to the precautionary measures. Don’t mind the naysayers who want to profit from the Covid scare industry and relish seeing poor people jump over each other for food they are used to working to provide for themselves and their families! pic.twitter.com/khCaEHdGdC
