Member of the NDC, lawyer Eduzdzi Tamakloe says electoral victory for US Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden means a victory for the NDC.
Speaking on the US elections and its implications for Ghana, he said there are some similarities between the two countries.
He explained that looking at the issues of conflict of interest and nepotism that characterized the Trump administration is the same as Akufo-Addo’s administration.
“With Biden’s victory, clearly, there is a change coming. What is more clear is that when you look at the Trump government the self dealings, the nepotism and how is governance became… to the notion of conflict of interest clearly you can see similarities with what is happening today.”
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden spoke on Friday evening to reaffirm his belief that he would eventually emerge victorious against President Trump, urging calm and patience as his lead against the Republican incumbent has widened in key swing states that are still counting votes.
“We’re going to win this race with a clear majority,” Biden said, speaking alongside his running mate, Kamala Harris, in his home state of Delaware.
“What’s becoming clear each hour is that record number of Americans, of all races, faiths, religions, chose change over more of the same,” he said.
Biden has delivered remarks every day since Election Day, promoting optimism from his supporters and encouraging states to continue counting ballots so that a clear winner in the race could emerge.
As of Friday evening, Biden had won 264 of the 270 electoral votes necessary to secure the presidency. Trump, the Republican nominee, had won 214.
Biden’s remarks come as the president’s path to reelection has narrowed considerably, prompting Trump to spew baseless accusations of voter fraud in an effort to undermine the integrity of the election.
Election experts agree there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud, despite Trump and his allies continuing to push unfounded conspiracies on the issue.
