Breaking the 8 will be my final significant political achievement – Akufo Addo.

In 2025, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will hand the presidency on to a different member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), in what he calls “the last feat of his political career.”

In order to ensure that the “breaking the 8” program would be carried out and that the NPP will continue to hold political power after the 2024 General Elections, the president has made an appeal to the NPP’s membership.

Akufo-Addo honored the founding fathers of the party and the founders of their tradition in a speech he gave over the weekend at a party gathering in Accra. He also praised the NPP’s historical role in providing leadership to the country when it was most required.

“I want to end by making one appeal, I want you to help me to achieve the last great political feat of my career in Ghanaian politics, that on the 7th of January 2025, I will go to Black Star Square and hand over the baton to our next NPP President of the Republic who we would have chosen, supported and brought to victory” Akufo-Addo said over the weekend.

“Victory in 2024, that is our goal, that is our task and that by the Grace of God, we will achieve”

He emphasized this as he spoke to party supporters gathering at the University of Professional Studies in Accra (UPSA). The Kofi Ohene-Konadu auditorium hosted the 30th Anniversary and National Thanksgiving Service for the NPP.

NPP@30: Our Shared Traditional, Holding and Working Together a Stable and Prosperous Nation was the event’s theme. Stephen Ntim, the party’s chairman, reaffirmed his commitment to leading the group to victory in 2024.

“After this 30-years of our existence, it must be our resolve to build a proper party membership register to enhance our collective ownership of the party, a party that is united and battle ready to ‘break the 8,” Ntim said.
