Economic fundamentals weak, don’t think of breaking the 8 – Leading NPP member tells party


A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Charles Wereko-Brobby has told the governing party to forget about breaking the 8-year-electoral cycle and focus on addressing the economic challenges facing Ghanaians.

In his view, the government is failing in the area of the economic management.

Speaking in an interview with TV3 on Thursday August 18, the former Chief Executive Officer of the Volta River Authority under the Kufuor administration said “If you have been given the chance to govern and you fail, don’t expect to continue to govern This goes to every party.”

“Democracy is not just about elections,” he stressed.


He added “the fundamentals have all gone wrong, why will you waste time thinking about breaking the 8?”

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo earlier said the NPP was determined to break the 8 in the 2024 general elections.

Speaking at the delegates conference of the NPP at the Accra Sports Stadium on Saturday July 16, Mr Akufo-Addo said “Breaking the 8, we shall in 2024.”

Minister of Justice and Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame also said that he was confident his party, the NPP will achieve that feat.

In his view, this is due to the good performance of the government in developing and transforming he country.

Speaking in an interview with TV3’s Roland Walker at the venue he said “I am saying that we have never seen, since independence, this kind of development. Even in my own sector, you can see the transformation and the development we have made in good governance and all.

“That clearly shows that the party is capable of transforming the fortunes of the country and I am very confident that in 2024 the people of Ghana we will renew the mandate that they gave to us and we will break the 8.”
