Former President, John Agyekum Kufuor, has called on the voting population of the Northern Region to desist from voting for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) because they “know how to talk but don’t know how to work”.
Speaking at a rally organized at the Jubilee Park in Tamale, Ex President Kufuor stated that the NPP will never betray the Northern Region of Ghana because “we trace our history to the Northern People’s Party who invited Dr Busia to join them”.
The former President also accused the ruling party of curtailing the projects started by the NPP because they “do not recognize the achievements of their predecessors”.
“NDC is boasting about extending electricity everywhere. Ask them where they got the money from to do the extension. They are also boasting of the extension and renovation of the Tamale Teaching Hospital. Ask them where they got the money from! ”.
“They boast of agriculture revolution but the only revolution is the Millennium Challenge Account, which NPP brought,” he stated.
“Ghana’s constitution says if a President comes in for four years and does good work, the people may give him another four years. The constitution does not say where the President has failed, the people should give them four more years. NDC has failed and they must go for the NPP to come."
"Our brothers keep saying the nation is poor and I am saying that Ghana today is two times richer than Ghana of 2008 when we [NPP] left power," Mr. Kufuor said.
“We challenge NDC to put NPP’s eight years on one side and bring PNDC/NDC’s 23 years on a scale and you will see that NPP’s eight years served the people of Ghana far better than their 23 years”.
“NDC must go into opposition because they have a lot to learn. Learn to respect the people of Ghana, tell the truth and have a vision. They have been there for too long without having any of these,” he noted.
