Majority Leader warns NPP against complacency in 2024

The Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has warned leadership, members and supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) against not achieving breaking of the eight years of political cycle if complacency sets in their campaign before and during the 2024 polls.

“We must not allow complacency to derail our forward march to break the jinx or we will be in opposition for a very long time so we must unite and peacefully coexist ahead of the 2024 general election,” he said.

According to him, the party would most likely be in opposition for 12 years if it loses the next election and charged members, supporters, well-wishers and sympathisers to remain focused, steadfast, loyal and united to overcome obstacles that would derail processes towards the agenda.

Mr Kyei-Mensa-Bonsu, who is the Member of Parliament (MP) for Suame in the Ashanti Region, intimated that wrangling and divisive tendencies within the party should cease or there was the likelihood to go into opposition for not less than 12 years without tasting power “if we lose Election 2024 to our main rival, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) since we want to beak the eight”.

 “We said we want to break the eight but brethren, if we do not unite, breaking the eight will be impossible, we will go into opposition for not less than 12 years because breaking the eight is not just about talking but we need to work hard in order to achieve what we are wishing for,” he cautioned.

He affirmed that the NPP, led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, were putting in place several measures to ensure the progress, growth and development of the country and thus challenged members of the party to work harder to protect the gains made or they would be eroded by their main political opponents if they win power in 2024.

According to him, several concerns had been raised about the need and ability for NPP to go into 2024 elections with united force devoid of wrangling and disunity and the task of selecting successor of President Akufo-Addo as party’s flag bearer posed potential threat to peace, unity, harmony and cohesion of NPP.

Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu decried that already, there were indications of a possible contest between Vice President Mahamadu Bawumia and Alan Kyerematen, the Minister of Trade and Industry could trigger deep cracks in the party.  –ghanaweb.com
