Professor Amakye Boateng of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) is of the view that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) would not be able to retain power if elections were held today.
According to him, the government’s policies have created so much frustration for the party as certain policies have not benefited the ordinary Ghanaian.
The lecture who revealed this in an interview on Akoma FM, also highlighted that massive unemployment and rising insecurity are contributing factors.
He also indicated that the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) were gradually gaining the goodwill of Ghanaians and have an edge over the government.
Below is a quote from his interview on Akoma FM below
“The NPP will lose elections should it be held today because the government is gradually becoming unpopular due to some inconsiderate decisions and policies that have attracted backlashes from the masses, so naturally such decisions are weighing the government down into opposition”, he averred.
“While all odds are against the ruling party, NDC are gradually gaining public goodwill, so the pendulum swings to their favour as it stands,” he added.
