A former Director of Communications for the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akomea is not surprised by the EIU report predicting the opposition National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) victory over the NPP in the 2024 general elections.
London-based economic and political analyst, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) in a five-year forecast for Ghana tipped the NDC to win the next general elections.
According to the EIU, it however expects the NDC to bring on board a new presidential candidate other than former President John Dramani Mahama.
Reacting to this on Citi TV’s Parliamentary news magazine programme, The Chamber, Nana Akomea said the report is “interesting, but not surprising.”
According to him, the NPP is well-aware that it stands to lose should an election be conducted “in the present circumstances.”
He is however confident that the party will regain the trust of Ghanaians “to break the eight” come 2024.
“Everyone in this country, including the NPP is well aware that if an election is held now, with the current circumstances, the NPP will not be the most popular party.”
“Fortunately for us, elections will not be held today. We have over 2 more years to go, which gives us more than enough time to remedy the current difficulties and get back into the good books of the majority of the voters. We are thus not worried about any such report,” he added.
