â€œLet me, therefore, use this opportunity to thank all those who believed in me and travelled far and wide with me notwithstanding the frustrations and disappointments and supported me in one way or another to help this project to become successful. I am more than convinced of the NPPâ€™s long-standing tradition of rewarding commitment, dedication, perseverance and loyalty.”
â€œAnd I am extremely grateful. I pray that the young ones will learn from my experience and give off their best to the Party we all believe in. Breaking the Eight is very possible if we all stick together and work hard for it,â€ he wrote on his wall.
The 2024 general elections is expected to be a keenly contested one between the two major political parties in the country â€“ New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC).
While the NPP looks at extending its stay in power in what it has christened as â€˜break the 8â€™, the NDC is also lacing up its boots to wrestle power from the governing party.
