The 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections will be keenly contested between the two major parties in the country.
It will be a straight ‘fight’ between the incumbent, New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the biggest opposition, National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Though we are two years away, there have been lot of predictions by some popular ‘men of God’ as to who will emerge winner of the 2020 polls.
YEN.com.gh is projecting a victory for the NPP due to the following reasons;
1. The two-term convention
Ghanaians are expected to vote massively for the NPP for a second-term based on the convention of giving political parties a second chance in power.
Since 1992, the political party that has won power is given a second four-year term to at least complete and execute their plans and projects.
Based on this convention, YEN is predicting a second term for the Akufo-Addo led NPP administration.
2. Free SHS
The NPP’s Free SHS is currently and arguably the best and biggest social project undertaken by any government in the fourth republic.
It is being projected that President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has already locked down votes in the 2020 elections because of the free SHS policy.
The NPP has also won hearts and minds with the free SHS across the political divide. The NPP government has made it clear that in spite of foreseeable challenges with the implementation of the free SHS, it was prepared to brave it for the sake of the Ghanaian child and the nation’s future.
Interestingly, the first batch of students enjoying Free SHS will be of voting age in 2020 and it is expected that they will massively endorse Nana Addo.
Unemployment has always been a big challenge in Ghana. Thousands of Ghanaians do not have jobs, a situation which is gradually becoming a security threat.
The unemployment situation has led the NPP government to introduce the Nation Builders Corps (NaBCo) programme. The NaBCo programme is a policy that is intended to provide jobs for thousands of the unemployed youth.
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo launched the NaBCo in Kumasi as an initiative by the government to provide employment for 100,000 unemployed graduates.
The programme will operate on seven modules designed to meet the pressing needs of the nation, while providing jobs for the teeming youth who have received tertiary education but are struggling to find jobs, partly because of the ban placed on public sector employment by the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
The NPP’s ability to provide decent jobs for the youth means another four-year term in government is all but secured.
