NPP Intends To Break 8- Year Power Circle

Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says the governing New Patriotic Party is aiming to stay in power for more than eight years.⁠

However, no political party in Ghana has stayed in power for more than eight years since the birth of the Fourth Republic in 1992.⁠

Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, March 21, 2021, Oppong Nkrumah said the New Patriotic Party wants to break the eight-year power cycle.⁠

According to the minister, “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 is something that can actually set us back. "That is why this government 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.”

“though 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,” the Minister added.

The Minister emphasized that, the New Patriotic Party seeks to re-engineer a full recovery of the economy through the creation of jobs and other feasible policies.
