NPP’ll win 2024 elections; the now-and-then backsliding must end – Akufo-Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said on Thursday, 5 August 2021, during the New Patriotic Party’s 29th-anniversary celebration at the party’s Accra headquarters that he is confident another NPP administration will succeed his government.

“Today, the challenges that confront our country, the difficulties that we have been plunged into by the COVID-19 pandemic are going to give us the opportunity to grow stronger and stronger and that strengthening of our party and its organs means one thing, and I am very confident of it that on December 7, 2024, the new NPP presidential candidate is going to win the election”, he said.

Mr Akufo-Addo said: “Our objective and responsibility are to do whatever is necessary to make sure that that victory is forthcoming”.

“We have to continue our way forward in Ghana”.

“We cannot continue to accept the backsliding that takes place every now and then”.

“It hasn’t benefited our nation and will not benefit our nation”, Mr Akufo-Addo noted.

According to him, the “foundations that we are laying today for the prosperity of our nation will be shaken if again through our own fault we allow the path of progress to be diverted.”

Speaking at the same event, the party’s Chairman, Mr Freddie Blay, said: “I want to charge the members of the party to prioritise unity over parochial interest”.

“This is the only way that we will still be on top of government and our contract with the people of Ghana in terms of its development.”

“This is the only party that can deliver that, and we must keep it so, and we must be very united irrespective of our own personal interests,” he said
