Sammy Gyamfi is the Communications Officer for the NDC

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr. Bawumia of seeking another term in government for the NPP beyond their current eight-year tenure to cover up their misdeeds.

According to the NDC, the NPP intend to have what would be a record consecutive three terms in office in order to have a free rein to perpetuate corruption and impunity.

Barely one year into their second four-year term, the NPP-led government is already seeking another term beyond the eight years – what it calls “break the 8.”

But addressing a Press Conference on Monday at the party’s headquarters in Adabraka in Accra, the Communication Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi called on Ghanaians to reject the proposition and instead demand accountability from the Akufo-Addo/Bawumia government.

“The only motivation for President Akufo-Addo, Dr. Bawumia and the NPP to want to “Break the 8” in their own words, is to help them perpetuate this regime of corruption, naked thievery, ostentation and impunity.

“Most of all, their wish is that in 2024, Ghanaians will give them another opportunity to cover-up their bad deeds and continue to dim the torch of accountability while further enriching themselves and impoverishing the Ghanaian people” he said.

“However, we are quite confident that come 2024, all well-meaning Ghanaians who wish to see the progress of our nation, will join forces with us to break the eight years of stealing, break the eight years of nepotism, break the eight years of lawlessness and impunity, break the eight years of deception and broken promises and break the eight years injustice and intolerance,” he added.

The statement also commended the Minority in Parliament, CSOs and the former Special Prosecutor for their vigilance.

It also called for all Ghanaians to get involved and not to relent in the fight against corruption.
