NPP In Trouble: They Are Already On The Path Of Defeat In 2024

It is barely six months into the second term of the Akufo-Addo led NPP government, but there are a lot of issues in the public domain which are not too pleasant to the Ghanaians who gave them power.

In the electoral history of Ghana, every political party gets voted out of government after eight years, that is, after serving a second term in office. This has been the case since 1992. It would therefore not be surprising if the ruling NPP government leaves office in 2024. As all others, the party is already wishing that Ghanaians give them the opportunity to go beyond 2024, but certain issues are already making this ambition fruitless.

1. Dumsor: one of the factors that caused the defeat of the erstwhile John Dramani Mahama led NDC government was the issue of erratic power supply, popularly known as Dumsor. The then opposition NPP made a lot of campaign promises out of it. But as we are talking now, a lot of Ghanaians are complaining bitterly about several hours of power outages and it's impact on their lives.

2. Corruption: corruption was also a very topical issue in the 2016 general elections which brought the NPP into power. The current president, Nana Akufo-Addo became president on the wheels of his attribute that he is incorruptible. But now, the government cannot boldly say to the face of Ghanaians that they have really fought the menace.

3. Economic hardship: every government gets kicked out of power for reasons of economic hardships of the populace and Nana Addo's NPP government is therefore no exception. Although the government has implemented some things like Free SHS, NABCO, feee water and electricity, free business stimulus packages during covid-19 times, etc. But several Ghanaians are still complaining about economic difficulties.

These and other reasons are why the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) may lose power in 2024. What do you think about this? Share your thoughts by commenting below, thank you.
