President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has charged members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to do everything in their power to help the party win the 2024 general elections.
The first gentleman of the land stated that the party cannot afford to allow what happened to it in 2008 to reoccur in 2024.
According to him, the NDC should be kept far away from government in Ghana in the coming years.
President Akufo-Addo stated that the party cannot afford to allow what happened to it in 2008 to reoccur in 2024.
“We are all witnesses to the derailing of the achievements chalked by President John Agyekum Kufuor by the successor NDC government, from 2009 to 2017, in which John Dramani Mahama featured so prominently,” the President noted.
According to him “Under 8 years of the successor NDC government, we became famous for all the wrong reasons. Four successive years of dumsor, the mismanagement of the economy, wrong and dangerous energy contracts, and wanton corruption dissipated any hope the Ghanaian had for sustained economic development. Never again should we allow this to happen.”
“We are expending some of our energies hurling invectives at each other, instead of at our opponents, and, in the process, taking digs at our own Government. It has been an anxious time for all who love our party, and who see us as the party that can bring progress and prosperity to our nation,” he said.
President Akufo-Addo continued, “It is for this reason that, as President of the Republic and de-facto leader of the Party, I want to ensure that certain actions of yesteryear, which contributed to our loss in 2008, are not repeated. We cannot afford an internal campaign based on ethnic or religious considerations.”
