Kwaku Ampratwum-Sarpong, deputy foreign minister, expressed concern about the NPP’s election prospects (NPP).
If elections were conducted today, the ruling party would lose badly to the NDC, he said.
Mr. Ampratwum-Sarpong said the NPP’s “breaking the 8” motto won’t happen if Ghana’s economy isn’t fixed quickly.
“We vowed we’d change history and fate.” We’re getting rid of 8 (8). If there’s an election today, the NPP will lose. Red is crimson; black is black. I’ll be direct.
“I’m there, I know what’s happening, and I hear my people.” Today’s subject is. We confront a major challenge.”
The contest for the next NPP flagbearer is harder than expected, with several candidates.
Kennedy Agyapong and the Agric Minister have both indicated interest in heading the party.
With the economy worsening and weak administration, many feel the NPP’s prospects of winning the next election are dwindling; Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister Kwaku Ampratwum-Sarpong agrees.
