John Dramani Mahama, a former president of Ghana, has praised the Economist Intelligence Unit’s (EIU) assessment that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has a better chance of winning the 2024 elections.
The largest opposition party in Ghana will win the election, according to a report released on Friday, April 28 by an international polling organization, but managing the country’s economy afterward would be challenging.
“Our baseline forecast is that economic hardships, the fallout from debt restructuring and poor governance will create an anti-incumbency wave and push the electorate to seek change.
“The NDC therefore stands a strong chance of winning the 2024 presidential poll and
securing a legislative majority.”
“Now they have predicted that the NDC will win in 2024,” he noted.
“So far, their prediction has proved accurate,” he stressed.
He claimed that the two factors—economic instability and subpar governance—for which the EIU is endorsing NDC are instructive.
“And the verdict is out there and Ghanaians say NDC come for your stone.”
He also said the defeat of the last elections in 2020 is a blessing in disguise as the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) had dissipated the national resources much at the blind side of everybody and they left a gaping hole waiting to be filled.
He said since NPP won, it has become the same party to fill that hole, a very difficult task which has led the country go abegging.
“This is the first in history that we have defaulted in paying our debt.”
