Don’t Think You’re Going to Win 2024 Elections- Allotey Jacobs to Mahama
Because of the current economic climate under the Akufo-Addo administration, former NDC Central Regional Chairman Bernard Allotey Jacobs has urged the major opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), not to celebrate thinking they will win the 2024 elections. He believes it will be difficult to defeat the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the elections of 2024. He cautioned the NDC in his analysis of the Tuesday by-election in the Ashanti Region’s Kumawu constituency.
He noted that the outcome of the by-election shows the NPP is building a strong organization towards the next elections.
“They shouldn’t be sitting down and saying that, because of the economic situation, they will win the 2024 elections. The NPP is quietly strategizing, building its organization towards 2024,” he said on Peace FM’s “Kokrokoo” morning show.
He commended the NPP over their victory as their candidate, Ernest Yaw Anim, was declared winner in the by-election by the Electoral Commission.
Yaw Anim polled 15264 and the National Democratic Congress’ candidate, Kwasi Amankwaa had 3723 votes.
