NDC can’t win 2024 elections, says Buaben Asamoa

According to Buaben Asamoa, the New Patriotic Party has a better record in the fourth Republic as compared to the NDC and therefore, he doubts the NDC will win power in 2024

Yaw Buaben Asamoa, the communications director of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), has said he is not convinced that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) can win the 2024 general elections.

He indicated that for instance, a comparative analysis of employment between the two major political parties; NDC and NPP shows that the latter has a better record as compared to its opponents.

Speaking on Asaase Radio’s news analysis and current affairs show – The Forum – on  Saturday (23 April), Asamoa said, “I have been very slowly reflective and carefully looking since the release [of the EIU report] at these questions; whether in truth is an issue-based process or approach that determines a change of government or personality?

“So, beyond the eight [of every government], the assumption is that if you can vary the leadership on either side because it’s implied then, you could ‘break the 8’. So, it is not merely the eight years cycle anymore. So, beyond that, is it these factors as well? And this is what I have been looking at very carefully.”

“Not convinced”

He added that “I must say that I am not convinced [that the NDC can win the 2024 elections]. I am not convinced because we’re looking at a comparative record and the NPP has prided itself in this Fourth Republic on having a better record on all these aspects than the NDC. Is it really the case that people operate on these records?”

“Look at employment, Kufour’s record on employment; creating NYEP and trying to generate employment from the government resources and all that. Look at the current situation, look at John Mahama going to the IMF and restricting employment so that the people could not be picked up in the public sector anymore,” he said.

“So, compared to the current situation where you have NABCO, teachers being employed because of free SHS, nurses being employed through the backlog. So, when I look at employment, I wonder if indeed, somebody will feel that for the sake of employment creation, they will rather go back to John Mahama or the NDC. Really, is it the case that the NDC has a better record that Ghanaian voters will feel safer with an NDC administration on employment record? I doubt it.”
