Impact of Political Uncertainty on Ghanaian Growth

Ghana once again successfully and peacefully transferred political power from the National Democratic Congress – which was in power from 2008 to 2016 – to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on 7 December 2016. This saw former Minister of Foreign Affairs Nana Akufo-Addo become President; further confirming Ghana’s reputation as a beacon of democracy on the continent, and one of the most politically stable countries in the West African region.
