The former Speaker of Parliament, Edward Doe Adjaho, is warning that the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) risk collapsing if it fails to win the 2024 general election.
The NDC lost the presidential elections of 2016 and 2020 to President Nana Akufo-Addo.
Speaking at the Volta regional delegates’ conference in Ho, Adjaho called on the party to remain united ahead of the 2024 general elections.
“Colleagues, I beg you, I beg you, we have to win the 2024 election otherwise NDC will be disintegrated,” he said. “Let’s sacrifice for this party for once.”
Meanwhile, a research conducted by the UK-based Info Research and Assessment UK Ltd shows that a majority of Ghanaians believe the economic challenges facing the country have been caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
The findings of the research show that 52.5% of Ghanaians believe that COVID-19 and the Russia-Ukraine war are the principal factors influencing of the global economy and creating the hardship that has plagued the Ghanaian economy.
Throwing forward to Election 2024, the researchers posed the following question during the survey: “Who will you vote for in 2024 between Bawumia and Mahama?”
On this question, 46% of the respondents chose the vice-president, Mahamudu Bawumia, and 35% opted for the former president John Mahama.
A significant 19% said “they will not vote at all because both parties (NPP and NDC) are the same”.
