Completing The “8” Is The NPP’s Primary Concern, Not Breaking It—Ayariga

Hassan Ayariga, the founder and head of the All People’s Congress (APC), has said that complete the ‘8’ rather than breaking it is the main obstacle facing the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He questions why the ruling party (NPP) is asking for an extension, claiming that it has not made the most of its current tenure.

Speaking on Thursday, July 4, 2024, on Onua TV’s Maakye, he claimed that the NPP had failed to live up to Ghanaians’ aspirations and had wasted the chance that was granted to them.

“At this point, the NPP is more concerned about completing the “8” than they are with shattering it. It’s a significant issue. How do you break the eight if you are unable to finish it well? The cedi is the currency that performs the poorest globally in your economy. People in Ghana rejected President Mahama, with GHC4.00 to the dollar. And Vice President Bawumia wants to be President at GHC16.00 to the dollar,” he pondered.

The politician and businessman voiced shock at the NPP’s desire to expand its mandate, pointing out that the country’s economic problems make this impossible.

We have all the power to transform our nation, but we’ve turned it over to those who treat us like second-class citizens and say things like, “fa steer no ma me,” or “hand over the steering to me,” and other such things,” he remarked.

“Ghana has not been turned to a toy where people are fighting over a steer. In order for the Ghanaian people to vote for us, we must present ourselves,” he continued.

Ayariga questioned whether the economic principles remain the same across successive administrations and attacked the NPP’s economic management, pointing out that the party is still aiming to hold onto power in spite of the cedi’s dismal performance.

Thus, I’m not sure if the economic principles apply differently to specific individuals. He pointed out.
