Ahead of the IEA’s final presidential debate on Wednesday, the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) has held its second debate for the presidential candidates who will not be participating in the IEA’s encounter.

The candidates; Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom, of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Dr Henry Lartey of the Great Consolidated Popular Party (GCPP); Akwasi Addai of the United Front Party (UFP) and Jacob Osei Yeboah, an independent candidate.

The GBC in accordance with its constitutional mandate has decided to give an equal platform to political parties to present their programmes to the people. The debate which took place at the GTV studios was broadcast live on national television and all the radio networks of GBC.

Dr Nduom said under the PPP, the state should facilitate the buying of the products of the private sector since the sector had to be helped to grow.

He said the negative attitude towards local businesses needed to change if the private sector was to take its rightful place in the society.

The PPP, he said, would also provide the direction for the private sector to expand and grow.

Dr Lartey said most Ghanaians lacked access to capital because they lacked the needed collateral to obtain credit.

With the GCPP, he said, the private sector would be resourced adequately to be successful.

The sector, he said, once given the support it desired would expand and grow as well as employ more Ghanaians thereby helping to solve the unemployment problem.

For his part, Mr Addai said the UFP would empower the private sector to grow its businesses by providing it with long term capital for expansion and growth.

“We would make the private sector to be competitive on the global market. The time has come to rejuvenate the private sector and the UFP would do that,” he said.

He deplored the situation where foreigners came to Ghana, generate all the financial resources and then send those resources to their countries.

Mr Addai said there would also be technology transfer to support the private sector and promote public-private partnership.

Mr Yeboah said under his administration, the capacity of the private sector would be built so that it took advantage of the numerous opportunities that would be created by his government.

He identified the lack of finance as a major problem facing the sector and that his administration would provide the finance needed by the sector.
