President Akufo-Addo has intimated that his personal record will help his party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), win the 2024 elections.
According to him by then he would have built the economy and repositioned Ghana for success which would translate into votes.
Speaking at the Gbewaa Palace in Yendi, Akufo-Addo reiterated the party’s resolve to win power in 2024 in order to continue with governance. He maintained that the NPP would break the 8 by relying on his good leadership.
“Just as my government worked to bring the country out of the IMF programme that we inherited in 2017, to build a strong economy before the Covid and Russian invasion of Ukraine happened, again we are going to go through the IMF negotiations and bring the economy back to a strong place before 2024 elections.
“All of that is in order to place the NPP in a good place to carry out its pledge of breaking the 8 in 2024.”
Per Ghana’s political history no party has gone beyond the two-year term in government. Usually after the first and second round, the party relinquishes power to the opposition.
