The Education Minister, Dr Yaw Osei Adutwum, has affirmed that ‘breaking the eight’ by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is possible but requires unity and peace among all party members.

He explained that in order to maintain peace in the party, all stakeholders must put their differences aside and work together in order to break the eight during the 2024 general election.

Dr Adutwum who is also the Member of Parliament for Bosomtwe announced this during Ghana’s Founders’ Day when he met some New Patriotic Party (NPP) stakeholders from the Bosomtwe constituency at Jachie.

The meeting was aimed at discussing issues relating to the development of the party, sharing with the constituents the good works of the NPP government and the need to build a united front to break the eight.


Some of the stakeholders who attended the meeting were polling station coordinators, Assembly members and all party delegates among others.

He used the opportunity to thank the constituents for their unflinching support for him and the party over the years and pledged to continue working very hard to ensure that the constituency received its fair share of the national cake.
