The member of Parliament for Suame Constituency, Hon. Simon Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu warns his party, the New Patriotic Party to unite ahead of Ghana’s general elections in 2024.
According to him, the NPP party will most likely lose the 2024 election and that, they would be in opposition for twelve years if they lose the election.
Mr. Osei Kyei Mensa-Bonsu, speaking at the party’s delegates conference in Suame constituency, warned that the party will most likely go for not less than twelve years without tasting power if it loses the 2024 election to National Democratic Congress, NDC.
He stated “We said we want to break the eight but brethren, if we do not unite as one human being with a common goal, breaking the eight will be impossible, we’ll go into opposition for not less 12 years. Breaking the eight is not just about talking but we want to work hard to achieve what we’re wishing for”.
He affirmed that the governing New Patriotic Party led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is putting in place numerous measures to ensure the development of Ghana and therefore entreated his party members to work hard to defend the positive aspects made.
Several concerns have been raised about the need and the ability for the NPP to go into the 2024 election with a united force.
The assignment of selecting a successor of President Akufo-Addo as the party’s flagbearer poses a potential risk to the unity of the NPP.
Already, there are indications that the possible contest between Vice President Alhaji Mahamadu Bawumia and serial contender for the flagbearership, Alan Kojo Kyerematen may also trigger deep cracks in the party.
He introduced that, the Vice President and the Minister for Trade and Industry currently continue to be the frontrunners in the Akufo-Addo successor contest.
