Acting General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party, John Boadu does not see himself not being confirmed as the substantive General Secretary of the party at Saturdayâ€™s national delegates congress.
For him, the massive support he is enjoying from the leadership of the party and President Nana Akufo-Addo in particular endorsing him is a clear sign of his impending victory.
â€œYes I am going to win and win massively,â€ he told 3FMâ€™s Kwakye Afreh on Friday at the Koforidua Technical University where the NPP is holding its delegates conference.
A little after a year, he was asked by the leadership of the party to act as the General Secretary when Kwabena Agyapong was suspended by the party for ostensibly working against NPPâ€™s presidential candidate ahead of the 2016 general elections.
John Boadu explained why he is emphatic that he would emerge victorious in Saturdayâ€™s election.
â€œI have everybody support including the president, not even including, particularly the president,â€ he touted.
He is racing with Richard Ahiagbah who some feel is little known in the party, but he says he is not an outsider.
When told it would be bad on the part of the president to pick and choose in an internal party election, John Boadu replied, â€œI donâ€™t know whether he knows the other candidateâ€.
However said, despite being the choice of the delegates he â€œwonâ€™t be complacentâ€ until the battle is won.
