PRESIDENT JOHN Evans Atta Mills’ poor leadership skills so far has contributed to drawing the country back, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Manhyia in Kumasi, Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh, has pointed out.
Dr. Opoku Prempeh said the country could have seen landmark developments had the good people of Ghana retained the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration in political power in 2008.
He said Ghana was making significant progress in every aspect when the NPP government, led by former President John Agyekum Kufuor, was in power for eight years.
Dr. Opoku Prempeh, popularly called Napo, however bemoaned that sadly the country had not seen any improvement in its developmental aspirations ever since the NDC took over power three years ago.
He lamented that the lack of visionary leadership so far demonstrated by the NDC government had stagnated the country’s development and worsened the tribulations of the ordinary Ghanaian.
Napo, who was addressing a section of the press in Kumasi on Monday, pointed out that from all indications, President Mills was not in control of the affairs of the state, hence the problems befalling the country.
The Manhyia MP said what pained him most was the fact the NDC government had intentionally decided not to continue any developmental projects started by the NPP administration.
This fiendish attitude by the NDC government, Napo stated, was the reason the country was crawling in terms of development ever since the NDC took over the reins of government.
Napo said as a result of the NDC government’s wicked attitude, the Sofoline Interchange Project and other landmark projects started by the NPP administration remained uncompleted.
The Manhyia MP did not understand why the government could pay huge sums of money to Alfred Woyome and cry that there was no money to continue developmental projects started by the NPP administration.
He said the NDC government had proven beyond every reasonable doubt that the completion of projects like the Sofoline Interchange in Kumasi and others started by the NPP government were not their priority.
Napo debunked assertions that the NPP didn’t have a concrete message to woo the electorates to their side ahead of the 2012 polls, stressing that the party could boast of the best message and programmes for Ghana currently.
To buttress his claim, he said the NPP had in recent times come out boldly with its position on every national issue that had popped up, stressing that the NPP had answers to all problems confronting Ghana now.
Napo urged the populace to register in their numbers when the voters registration exercise began so that they could be in the position to vote the NDC government out of office to enable the NPP rescue Ghana.
