Over the years, Ghana’s leadership has been dominated by the social democratic political party, National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the centre-right and liberal-conservative political party, New Patriotic Party(NPP).
Ghana, under the leadership of both political parties, has witnessed a series of failures and dissatisfying rulings in governance.
Ghana is currently waiting for approval from the International Monetary Fund (IMF), on which, the incumbent leadership under the rule of Nana Akufo-Addo of the NPP, without it the Economy could crush by March 2023.
The country’s hope for the IMF bailout has been the 17th.
In relation to that, On Saturday, 25 February 2023, Ghana’s neighbouring country, Nigeria, conducted its general elections which included allowing eligible citizens to choose their preferred candidate as President for the next 4 years.
Amongst the candidates is Peter Obi who has been a projected winner even before election day. According to Nigerians, they were ready to risk change for new governance as they were weary of leadership under the All Progressives Congress (APC)led by Bola Tinubu and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) by Atiku Abubakar.
Peter Obi is the former governor of the southeastern state of Anambra, whose emergence and strong showing so far has effectively disrupted the traditional two-horse race.
Meanwhile, Ghanaian Twitter users have caused a stir on the bird app stating that the country needs someone like Peter Obi to run for the 2024 election to end the NPP and NDC dominance.
Also, Desmond Kwesi Blackmore, known by his stage name D-Black, has attracted the internet community with his post on Twitter.
“Ghana needs a change too… we’ve been mismanaged for too long, D-Black Tweeted.”
According to the musician, Ghana has been mismanaged and needed change.

NPP and NDC I hope you people are watching. When we too get a competent third force we will show you that this country doesn’t belong to you both.
