When his term ends in January 2025, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has assured party members that he will cede power to a successor from his party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

By making this statement, Akufo-Addo is implying that the NPP will win the 2024 election and so ‘break the 8’, a phrase that the party invented in order to achieve its historic goal of winning a third consecutive term in office under the present constitution.

Bryan Acheampong, the minister of agriculture, recently made headlines when he asserted that the NPP would never cede power to the NDC and warned that if they attempted any stupidity, the party will equal the main opposition.
