President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has expressed optimism that the new Leadership of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the newly elected parliamentary candidates of the party will help to win the 2024 general elections.

He also expressed confidence that the youthful parliamentary candidates of the NPP will help the party to secure a majority of Parliament of the 4th Republic.

In a congratulations message on Sunday, January 28, 2024, Nana Addo said, “We have elected a good blend and experienced parliamentary candidates, whom I warmly congratulate, and who, I am confident, will help secure a majority for the NPP in the ninth Parliament of the 4th Republic, and help return an NPP presidential candidate into office on 7th january 2025”

He urged them to stay with the Danquah-Dombo-Busia tradition ahead of the December 7 polls. This, according to the president, will help the NPP to break the eight.

“The time-tested, honoured tradition that has kept the NPP as one indissoluble unit demands that the victor received the unallowed support of the candidates who were not successful at the polls. If we are to break the eight, which I know is very possible, then we must stay true to this tradition, unit firmly behind our excellent presidential candidate and formidable parliamentary candidates, and deliver another resounding victory for the party, and, thereby, continue the process of bringing progress and prosperity to every part of our country, an endeavour on which we are fully embarked.” He stated.

“I urged all true-blue party members to recollect, at all times, that the Danquah-Dombo-Busia political tradition is the greatest, most enduring and noblest political tradition in Ghanaian politics. It was founded to fight foreign domination of our country and domestic tyranny of our state, which has, subsequently, emboldened several generations of its activities to defy detentions, exile, martyrdoms and long periods of opposition, to continue with a project of building a free, democratic and prosperous nation, propelled by individual enterprise and initiative, and by a deep sense of social justice.” Nana Addo added.

He therefore appealed to the losers to stay united and join hands with the winners to work towards the goal of the party in the December 7 elections.

“I appeal to all who lost to remember that, in elections, there are winners and losers, and that today’s losers can be tomorrow’s winners. Let us stay the course, conduct ourselves well before the Ghanaian people, strengthen our organisation, and win the 2024 elections.” He appealed.

Ahead of the December 7 general elections, political parties in Ghana are gearing up to ensure that victory goes to their sides.
