Give The Government Led By Nana Addo Time To Transform Ghana- Says Lawyer John Kumah
According to informations reaching wakeupafrica360 from our source in Ghana, the aspiring New Patriotic Party (NPP) Parliamentary candidate for Ejisu in the Ashanti region and CEO, National Entrepreneurship and Innovation Program (NEIP), Lawyer John Kumah has urged Ghanaians to be patient and also remain steadfast in the current administration led by the New Patriotic Party.
According to him, “ It will constitute a mistake to vote the National Democratic Congress party back into government in the December 2020 elections. The government led by President Akufo-Addo has strived to position the country in a better stead than the erstwhile administration led by former President John Dramani Mahama left it and so it is imperative that Akufo-Addo’s mandate is extended to ensure that all his well thought out goals materialize.. I am seeing a better positioned country and by the time President Akufo-Addo is about completing his tenure as President, we will see he has transformed this country gradually to a more developed country. I am only praying that Ghanaians will be patient and trust this government so that they will not vote the NDC back into power because we have seen severally how destructive they are.” He also while making a press conference on Wontumi FM Kumasi, said that former president Kufuor took Ghana from an heavily indebted poor country and positioned it as a lower middle income country only for the National Democratic Congress to assume power and run back to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for money which he alleged they shared it among themselves.
According to him, the National Democratic Party is a destructive party find of ruining good projects implemented by the New Patriotic Party and if Ghanaians make the mistake of voting them back into power again, it will cost the whole country dearly. He also said that President Akufo-Addo is building a legacy that will benefit generations to come and the Ghana people must give him more time to do so. According to him, should the New Patriotic Party be in power 12-16 years, Ghanaians will see a transformed country developed across all sectors.
Still on the other news making the rounds, the government has refuted the claims by the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) made 631 promises in its 2016 manifesto. It said the NPP rather made 388 promises in its 2016 manifesto.
As we get into 2020 national conversation period, one of the narratives that the NDC seeks to carve is a narrative of dishonesty and in order to give life or credence to that narrative, they have to create scenarios that if indeed we made 388 promises, they will find some ways of adding 235 and claim that we made 631 and in the end, say we have been dishonest,” the Minister of Information, Mr Kojo Oppong Nkrumah told journalists at a news conference yesterday to respond to the issues raised by the NDC at its press briefing.
The NDC at a media engagement yesterday argued that the Akufo-Addo government made 631 promises in its 2016 manifesto adding that only 83 of such promises have been delivered, thus rating the government 14 per cent on promises fulfilled.
