Boakye Agyarko, Ghana’s Former Energy Minister, has stated categorically that the ruling New Patriotic Party must continuously rule Ghana for about 60 years to position the country well for economic prosperity and development.
According to him, the NPP has demonstrated over the past five years since gaining power that it is capable of transforming Ghana if stays in government for a longer period.
“…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 on 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 Maxico has ruled for 71 years so NPP ours must be 60 years”.
Boakye Agyarko said this on Sunday, October 17, 2021 while addressing the party at Eastern Regional Annual Delegates Conference held at Kyebi.
Boakye Agyarko however stated that this could be possible only when the party remains united ahead of 2024 and the party supporters are motivated enough to work harder.
