NPP will hand over power if we lose 2024 election – Henry Quartey

In case the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is defeated in the next general elections, Henry Quartey, the Minister of the Interior, has stated that the party is totally dedicated to a peaceful transfer of power.

The statement coincides with worries expressed by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) about the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government’s readiness to step down in the event that they do not win the polls on December 7.

President Akufo-Addo’s comments, in which he hinted at his reluctance to cede power to a rival he had already vanquished in two elections, raised these fears.

Henry Quartey gave media an assurance on Wednesday, May 15, when speaking to the media in Accra that his party was committed to making sure the election process was peaceful.

“As a politician, as a political party, it is our hope, it is our wish, it is our belief that by the grace of God, the good people of this country, the good work that we have done in infrastructure and in other interventions, they will give us another mandate.

“Perish the thought, and I say again, perish the thought, If they decide to give their mandate to somebody, we will handover peacefully and walk away, go to the drawing board and come back Insha Allah. But I know that the grace of God abounds and so we shall break the 8.”

“Let me sound the wording again, You know my track record, I walk my talk. Anybody who goes to do something other than what is prescribed, we will do our best to ensure that the law will take its course and the court of competent jurisdiction will do its work.

“May I sound this warning that it will not be political vindictiveness. If anybody commits, whoever the person is, we shall ensure that the law will take its course.”
