It will not be news if NDC wins 2024 elections — NPP

Published

on


“The former president, John Mahama, is reportedly considering running again, but we expect the opposition NDC to try to revitalise its prospects with a fresh candidate.

“Our baseline forecast is that ongoing public dissatisfaction with the slow pace of improvements in governance – such as infrastructure development, job creation, and easing of corruption – will trigger anti-incumbency factors and push the electorate to seek a change,” the EIU said in its report.

The NPP reacting to the EIU report said “The EIU hangs its prediction on the usual assumption. That presidential power has been rotating over eight-year periods in the Fourth Republic is a fact so far.”

It said EIU implies that Mahama’s record of leadership is so poor that if he becomes the candidate, the NDC predicted win goes up in smoke adding that it is a huge boost to the NPP effort of ‘breaking the 8’.

In a statement signed by the Communications Director of the NPP, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, said: “If NDC wins, it will not be news. But if the NPP wins, it would be a remarkable achievement that would demonstrate the coming of age of electoral politics in Ghana. In other words, an NPP victory in 2024, popularly dubbed ‘Breaking the Eight’, would be a more unusual event than an NDC victory, based on the history of elections in the Fourth Republic.”

We said we are going to change destiny, we are going to change history. We want to break the eight (8). Today, this is in doubt, I will tell you honestly if there is an election today NPP will lose miserably. Red is red and black is black. I will say it and tell you as it is.

“I am on the ground, I know what is going on and hear what my constituents are saying and I know what they are saying out there in Accra, the middle class, lower class you name it.

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has told supporters of the New Patriotic Party last year in Kumasi at its National Delegates Conference that ‘breaking the 8’ will be difficult but a possibility if they work together.

Meanwhile, the National Council of the NPP announced guidelines for Polling Station, Constituency, Regional and National Executive elections for this year.

Rise up against the e-levy – John Dumelo charges Ghanaian celebrities

Published

on


Speaking on the controversial e-levy, John Dumelo said the charges are too high.

“Today, I sent momo worth almost 5,000 to pay the farmworkers. Do you know how much e-levy I paid? Almost 70-something cedi. If I have to pay such an amount every day, I will be paying 70 cedis every day. It is serious. It’s not good”, he wrote.

The failed Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary aspirant also called on his colleagues to stage a protest against the government.

“We can do it, but the people there will not listen. So it will be for nothing. My point is these people (NPP government), you can do it tomorrow, walk naked from here to Agboloshie (throws hands up in a helpless manner),” he said.

The opposition, the NDC has, however, promised to cancel the e-levy should they win the 2024 elections.

The Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu said the levy is unconstitutional.

He said “There are those we call the first 100 days decisions of H.E John Dramani Mahama if he gets elected as president. Some must happen within the first week that parliament is sitting. One of the legislations that H.E John Dramani Mahama has pledged to repeal and I pray we have a parliamentary majority which we would have will be a repeal of E-levy.”

In an interview on GHOne TV, Iddrisu said “Can you imagine what is going on? People are pickpocketing from your mobile wallets – is that right? It is not only disruptive to the financial ecosystem but uncertain and inconvenient legislation of an E-levy. See the panic it created in the system. I think Ghana Revenue Authority must wake up and do what is right and appropriate within the law – they are not a law unto themselves.”
