Mr. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said after the EIU Predicted NDC to win 2024 Presidential election.

The Minister for Information, Mr. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has said, "the government of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) intends on ending the cycle of political power changing hands every eight years."

He said this following the Economist Intelligence Unit’s (EIU) prediction that the NDC will win the 2024 general presidential election.

“The next parliamentary and presidential elections are due in 2024. Under the constitutionally mandated term limits, Mr Akufo-Addo cannot run for a third term,” EIU's report.

“Mr Mahama is reportedly considering whether to run again, but we expect the NDC to seek to revitalise its prospects with a fresh candidate. After two terms of NPP government, we expect the NDC to win the 2024 presidential election and to gain a small majority in parliament,” the EIU recently reported.

Mr. Oppong Nkrumah at a press conference this afternoon, said the governing NPP has decided to sustain the support of all Ghanaians in 2024 through viable economic policies initiated.

“We are very much aware of this tendency [as observed in the EIU report], but we believe that this whole thing where every 8 years even when the country is making progress, power changes hands, it is something that can actually set us back. That is why this administration intends to work very hard to retain the confidence of the people by the time that our second term mandate is done. So that we can break the 8 years cycle,” The minister said.

“So it will ordinarily be a risk but it is a phenomenon that we are akin to break and this expectation that every 8 years power changes hands, which is what is informing what they have put out there, is one that we intend to break,” he added.

The Minister professed that the Akufo-Addo's NPP government are determined to recover the economy by creating jobs and introducing other economic policies.

There is currently intense campaign ongoing on social media and other platforms from the camps of the various aspiring flagbearers who are hopefuls to lead the NPP 2024 presidential polls, although campaign activities are yet to be sanctioned by the National Executive Committee of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

So can the NPP maintain the sit for 2024 despite the EIU Predicted NDC to win?
