President Akufo-Addo has declared that the upcoming by-elections in Kumawu will serve as a pivotal starting point for the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) victory in the 2024 elections.
Addressing a crowd of supporters during a campaign rally in Kumawu on Sunday May 21, 2023, the President expressed confidence in the NPP’s chances and emphasized the significance of the by-election in shaping the party’s trajectory going into the 2024 general elections.
“Kumawu holds the key to our success in the upcoming elections. Let us seize this opportunity, mobilize our supporters, and pave the way for a resounding victory in 2024,” the President said.
According to President Akufo-Addo, the strategic significance of the Kumawu constituency serves as a critical cornerstone for the NPP’s triumph in the upcoming general elections stating that the support and momentum garnered in Kumawu will reverberate nationwide, forging the path to NPP’s victory in 2024.
He urged the people of Kumawu to be vigilant and actively participate in the democratic process. He endorsed Ernest Yaw Anim, the NPP candidate for the by-election, as the best choice to represent the constituency. The President expressed confidence that Anim would secure victory, aligning with the NPP’s vision for progress, development, and peace.
During his speech, the President also touched upon various achievements and developments under his administration. He highlighted the strides made by his administration, particularly in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic.
“We have lifted all restrictions on COVID for everything to bounce back and so things are getting better,” he said, emphasizing the government’s commitment to revitalizing the economy and fostering growth.
Furthermore, the President celebrated the recent approval received from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which he hailed as “great news” attributing the fast approval of the IMF loan to the tireless efforts and compelling case presented by his government.
The President maintained that the current NPP administration has already accomplished a substantial amount of work in line with its campaign promises and hence, it is only right that Ghanaians give the NPP the mandate in 2024 to continue with its works.
He was accompanied by several high-ranking party officials like the National Chairman, Stephen Ntim, General Secretary, Justin Frimpong Kodua, National Organizer, Henry Nana Boakye among others.
