The governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) says it will not rely solely on the prediction by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) that the party will secure re-election in 2020.

General Secretary of the party, Mr John Boadu said despite the prediction, the party will continue to be on its toes to ensure victory in the 2020 polls.

“We won’t rely on the report, we are not going to be complacent but rather work and ensure that we win the 2020 elections,” he said on Accra based Neat FM monitored by

The EIU has predicted that the NPP will secure re-election in 2020.

The EIU in its country report on Ghana released on May 13, 2019, said it will be difficult for the opposition National Democratic Congress 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.

The EIU has over the years released similar reports and predictions on Ghana’s elections, which in a number of cases have turned out to be right and other times wrong.

To Mr Boadu, the prediction by EIU is not surprising to both the party and the government knowing very well that they have done enough to improve the economic situation in the country since President Akufo-Addo took over in 2017.
