The 2020 general election is just 11 months away and most political parties and their various flag bearers have already started campaigning.

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) believes they are in a better position to rule the country as they are of the view that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) did not do good when it comes to managing the economy.

Ghanaians have also registered their fair share criticisms and praises concerning the sitting government and the opposition government.

Meanwhile, the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), ahead of the polls, has predicted the National Democratic Congress will not recover from the loss it suffered in the last general election.

The business intelligence unit in its latest report on Ghana says the Akufo-Addo administration is still regarded as a better custodian of the economy compared to the opposition leader, John Dramani Mahama.

This is not the first time that the EIU has notified that the governing New Patriotic Party, NPP, would secure re-election in 2020.

The EIU has given reports and predictions on Ghana’s elections, which in a number of cases have turned out to be right.

In the report generated on December 30, 2019, it observed that it will be difficult for the opposition NDC under former president John Dramani Mahama, to portray itself as the better custodian of Ghana’s economy, especially as the country’s growth outlook looks fairly strong.

Meanwhile, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is optimistic, its flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, will be elected president come December 7, 2020.

In other news, some retail outlets in their bid to show disapproval for the introduction of the new cedi notes out-rightly refused to collect the new notes as payment for goods.

Not just have retail outlets rejected the new cedi notes but Ghanaians who are given these notes whenever they make huge withdrawals from the banks, also refuse to take them.

The Bank of Ghana has, however, come out to urge retail outlets and individuals not to reject the new cedi notes since they are a legal tender.
