The Member of Parliament for Akuapem South, Osei Bonsu Amoah, says Ghana’s ailing economy will be fixed again under a New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration, led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
According to him, the country’s economy has been so badly managed that, it will need a committed leader like Nana Akufo-Addo and his competent team to bring it back on the path of growth for job creation, like NPP did when it took over a terrible economy in 2001.
Mr. O. B. Amoah said these whilst addressing the Presbyterian Women’s College, Aburi branch, of the Tertiary Students Confederacy (TESCON) of the NPP. Answering questions from the students as to whether the NPP can fulfill its 2016 election promises like ‘one district, one factory, ‘$1 million for each constituency every year,’ the Akuapem South MP reaffirmed the party’s commitment to deliver its promises because it had an enviable track record in government.
“NPP had promised in the year 2000 that it will bring National Health Insurance, it was done. NPP promised to bring the National Youth Employment Programme to provide jobs for the youth, it was done. NPP promised to introduce Metro Mass Transport to improve the transportation system in the country, it was done. The NPP promised to introduce the School Feeding Programme, it was done”.
“The NPP promised to introduce Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) programme to cushion the poor, it was done. The NDC condemned the LEAP programme when it was being implemented, but they have now taken it and are boasting with it,” O. B. Amoah pointed out.
