NPP will restore economy and win 2024 polls – John Boadu reacts to EIU report

General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) says government can return the country to an economically viable path.

According to John Boadu, the ruling party has a track record of turning around the fortunes of the country.

“With the kind of management experience and expertise that we have, without all these unique events outside our control, we were doing this. So if we are there we will do far better,” he told JoyNews.

This comes on the back of the research conducted by the Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU) which concluded that the current challenges facing the country make the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) highly probable to take over power in the 2024 elections.

“Our [EIU] 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 analysts indicated.

Speaking on PM Express, Mr Boadu insisted that the party has a track record of restoring economic gains which had been eroded by the erstwhile Mahama administration.

He explained that most of the problems facing the government are a result of global circumstances which Ghana was not left out.

The NPP’s chief scribe told Evans Mensah that measures which have been put in place to surmount these challenges and ensure a prosperous country in the next two years.

But for the initiatives in the agricultural sector such as values addition to crops among others, Ghana’s situation, Mr Boadu believes could have worsened.

When this is done, John Boadu foresees that the people of Ghana will see the need to repose confidence in the party for another four-year term.

“It depends on how well we will also be able to put together our communication… we will be able to put together how things are and the way forward and hope for the future,” he added.

Mr Boadu is also looking to contest NPP’s international elections in a bid to retain his position as General Secretary.
