The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) will continue to be on it oars to ensure victory in the 2020 polls despite the prediction by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) the party will secure re-election in 2020.
“Like a footballer what we are looking for is goal so we are not going to be complacent”, General Secretary of the party, Mr. John Boadu said in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
According to him, the prediction by EIU is not surprising to
both the party and the government knowing very well that they have done enough
to improve the economic situation in the country since President Akufo-Addo
took helms of affairs in 2017.
“We know that government is doing well and we believe we are going to NDC in any election”, Mr. John Boadu told Kwame Nkrumah Tikese on Accra-based Okay Fm monitored by MyNewsGh.com
The Economist Intelligence Unit, EIU, has predicted that the
governing New Patriotic Party, NPP, will secure re-election in 2020.
The EIU in its country report on Ghana released on May 13,
2019, said it will be difficult for the opposition NDC under former President
John Dramani Mahama, to portray itself as the better custodian of Ghana’s
economy, especially as the country’s growth outlook looks fairly strong.
The EIU has over the years released similar reports and predictions on Ghana’s elections, which in a number of cases have turned out to be right.
Nana Akufo-Addo in the 2016 elections, beat then President
John Mahama by polling 5,716,026 million votes, representing 53.85%, while John
Mahama polled 4,713,277 million votes representing 44.40%, the worse so far for
an incumbent President.
