EIU Report : Political Science Lecturer Explains Why The NPP May Break The 8 Years Rule Tradition

Since the release of the the latest report by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) about the chances of the NDC in the 2024 Presidential Elections, there has been mixed reactions to the report.

In its latest report, the US based research firm predicted that, it expects the Opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), to win the 2024 Presidential elections,especially if the party elects a new Flagbearer for the elections.

But, speaking on JoyNews, a Political Science Lecturer at the University of Ghana, Dr. Alidu Seidu has indicated that, the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) may break the 8 years rule tradition in the Country.

Dr. Alidu Seidu explained that, just as some political traditions have been broken before in the past, this 8 year rule tradition too can be broken.

He cited examples of the tradition of a sitting President not losing an election which was broken in 2016, he also cited another tradition of only Candidates with John in their names who only rule Ghana which was also broken by President Akufo-Addo.

He however indicated that, it will depend on the hard work and strategy of the NPP that will enable them to break the tradition.
