‘NPP will not hand over power to NDC’ – Bryan Acheampong

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Abetifi Constituency, Bryan Acheampong has reiterated a statement made last year that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) would not win the 2024 general elections.

He stated that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) would therefore not transfer power to the NDC.

“Last year I stood here in Mpraeso and said that whether NDC likes it or not they will never win the December 7 polls and therefore the NPP will not hand over power to them because they cannot win the elections.

“If you cannot win elections why do you want power to be given to you at all cost. As at that time I made the statements Ghana was confronted with economic challenges which made it difficult for contractors to do their work, unable to continue agenda 111 projects among others”,  Mr Acheampong stated.

Mr. Acheampong, who also serves as the Minister of Agriculture, made these remarks following a unity walk organized by the party to mark this year’s Kwahu Easter celebrations in Mpraeso, Kwahu South Municipality, Eastern Region. The unity walk was part of the NPP’s activities to observe this year’s Kwahu Easter festivities.

According to the Abetifi MP, the NDC would never emerge victorious in the December 7 polls, regardless of their desires. He questioned why a party that cannot win elections would seek power at all costs.

Mr. Acheampong pointed out that when he made similar statements last year, Ghana was facing economic challenges, including difficulties for contractors to execute projects like agenda 111 due to economic strains caused by factors like COVID-19 and the Russian-Ukraine war.

Despite these challenges, Mr. Acheampong asserted that the NPP had implemented stringent measures to revive the economy, leading to positive results such as a drop in the dollar rate and improvements in inflation rates. He expressed confidence that these economic improvements would resonate with voters, ensuring the NPP’s victory in the 2024 elections.

Mr. Acheampong concluded by stating that with the current positive indicators, the NPP was poised to win the upcoming elections decisively.
