The next election is about three (3) years away but the major political parties in the country: the NPP and the NDC have started making preparations towards the election. While the NDC plans to take over from the NPP in 2024, the NPP also has different plans of breaking the 8-year election jinx which has been in existence since 1992.
It seems Mr. Boakye Agyarko has even much more different plans from the party's. The former Energy Minister stated that it should not be the intention of the party to hand over power very soon to the opposition party. He emphasized that the party should stay in power for the next sixty (60) years after winning the 2024 general elections. He gave examples such as the Japanese Liberal Party and the PRI of Mexico which have been in power for 54 and 71 years respectively.
He stressed that the party should emulate these parties and make it a target to win every general election and rule for the next 60 years. He added that this can be achieved if the party remains united and work harder.
Mr. Boakye Agyarko made these statement's during the party's Eastern Regional Annual Delegates Conference.
Do you see the NPP breaking the 8 and even going a step further to rule for another set of years or would the NDC come back to power in 2024? What do you make of Mr. Boakye Agyarko's statements? Share your thoughts with us by leaving all your comments below.
