NPP will lose 2024 elections because of Akufo Addo’s disrespectful comments — UCC lecturer predicts

Jonathan Asante Okyere, a political analyst and professor at the University of Cape Coast, predicts that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) would suffer significant electoral losses in the next 2024 election.

He attributes this to remarks made this week by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

During an interview with OTEC FM earlier this week, the President was questioned about recent threats from residents of Kwabre who are demanding that the road in their area be repaired.

The President shot back that he doesn’t fear their threats, so they may vote for anybody they want.

“No problem. I am saying people make those kinds of threats; me they don’t frighten me.

“If you decide to vote for the NDC in the general election, it is your choice and that is not my problem. No one will force you to vote for someone,” President AKufo-Addo said.

According to political scientist Jonathan Asante Okyere, who gave an interview to Kasapa FM, such remarks might hurt the NPP in the 2024 elections.

As a result of the economic chaos, ordinary Ghanaians are suffering greatly, in his opinion, and the outlook for the governing party is not positive.

“The President didn’t need to say that, these things are going to affect the electoral fortunes of the party, it’s obvious. The fact is that the economic quagmire the country finds itself in will not make the NPP retain power in 2024.

“It is even going to become more difficult for the party based on the fact that the President is disrespecting people who have stood solidly behind the NPP over the years,” Mr. Jonathan Asante Okyere shared.

The political analyst further questioned, “Is President Akufo-Addo doing this deliberately or out of frustration? Or it’s his arrogant nature that we already know about him that is now on full display publicly just because he’s had his two terms.

“If it is frustration, we can pardon him, but if it’s deliberate then he’s scuttling the chances of those NPP aspirants who want to lead the party to victory in 2024.”
