Rawlings predicts win for John Mahama in the December elections

Former President, Flight Lieutenant Jerry John Rawlings, has predicted a win for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the December general election.

Jerry John Rawlings has shown his support for President John Mahama, saying he has revived the NDC’s chances of winning this year’s polls.

Addressing the Volta Regional House of Chiefs in Ho Wednesday afternoon, the NDC founder said “something positive has no doubt emerged from the death of the former President.  Prior to the demise of our late President [John Evans Atta Mills], there was a lot of nervousness; there was a lot of anxiety amongst the governing party about how much of a chance they stood in the forthcoming election.”

According to the Founder of the NDC, divine intervention created the avenue for good will and sympathy for President Mahama.

The former leader noted that President Mahama has brought a spark to the Presidency which hitherto was missing and could have cost NDC this election.

He said “the emergence of John Mahama has also added some spark to the government” and also reduced fear and anxiety among party faithfuls.

Former President and Founder of the NDC, Flight Lieutenant Jerry John Rawlings, also reiterated that President Mahama is likely to win the 2012 elections.
