A Deputy Minister of Information, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, says ex president Kufour’s allusion that he’s the best president the Danquah-Busia tradition has ever produced is a fallacy which has not even been endorsed by his party members who gathered at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium over the weekend.

He has thus advised Mr. Kufuor to stop showering strange praises on himself. “Even within his own party they don’t endorse his legacy, they don’t believe that he is the greatest President the Danquah-Busia tradition has produced. If you look at the outcome of the NPP congress after President Kufour’s speech it is clear that the NPP supporters themselves don’t buy all these strange praises he is showering on himself.”

Mr. Okudzeto Ablakwa, responding to the ex President’s comments at the Kumasi congress that President Mills has disappointed Ghanaians told Citi News that contrary to ex president Kufour’s comments, the country’s economy has improved tremendously since the NDC took power. “Indeed if you look at the state of the economy today it is far better than what President Kufour left. He left an economy which had inflation at 18.1%, as we speak now, under President Mills, inflation is around 14.8% and the Cedi has appreciated against the major currencies”

Former President Kufour in his address to party loyalists during the NPP’s National Delegates’ Conference asserted that most of the projects that were initiated by his government had been abandoned by the NDC government. However, in an interview with Citi News, Mr. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, said most of those projects have come to a standstill because the NPP government was unable to secure a sustainable funding for them.

He said the National Democratic Congress led government does not intend to discontinue all projects started by the erstwhile NPP administration. “We will continue all laudable projects under the previous regime, we do not want to be petty and abrogate or annul contracts or projects just because we didn’t start it” “There were a lot of contracts that were started under the President Kufour regime that did not have sustainable funding and that is why certain projects like the Achimota-Ofankor road for more than five years have not been completed”.

He added that the NDC government is raising funds to complete such projects, and if the needed funds are secured most projects embarked on by the NPP government will be completed.
