The governing National Democratic Congress’ one-touch victory target in the 7 December polls is a mere dream, flag bearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom has said.
“… All those people who keep saying that they are going one touch, they are dreaming. Not in this our country Ghana.

Crowning his five-day tour of the Volta Region with an 8-km health walk through the principal streets of Ho, Mr Debrah said a one-touch victory was in the air for the NDC.
“The fields are white, and, therefore, the need for the party to intensify its efforts at working for a one-touch victory.”
“If Ghanaians gave former Presidents Rawlings and Kufuor eight-year terms, why not President John Dramani Mahama?
“The grounds are fertile, the fields are white, we, therefore, need to double our efforts at working hard to make a one-touch victory a real possibility,” Mr Debrah added.
