A former Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko has admonished the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to work towards towards election 2024.
He said the NPP must stay in power for the next 60 years.
According to the economist and politician, the governing party must not only target breaking the 8 but must look beyond staying in power for decades to come to emulate the Japanese Liberal Party and the PRI of Mexico.
“…so after breaking the 8, then we hand over power to NDC? absolutely not. My intention for this party is to become the dominant political force in the political space. So that there would be no challenger to the NPP in any election that we go.
“So that every election, election after election we will continue rule. The Japanese Liberal Party has been in power for 54 years, the PRI of Mexico has ruled for 71 years so NPP ours must be 60 years,” Mr. Boakye Agyarko said at the NPPs regional delegates conference in the Eastern Region.
President Akufo-Addo will complete his eight years in government.
As usual, a new government always takes over after the 8year term of the ruling government.
However, there are already campaigns for the elephant party to continue to stay in power beyond the 8year electoral cycle.
At the regional delegates conferences of the NPP in the various regions last week, branded T-shirts of breaking the 8 were displayed.
More is expected to be seen at various upcoming gatherings of the NPP.
