President, Nana Akufo Addo has challenged the leader of opposition NDC party, John Mahama to name at least one idea or policy his government implemented during his tenure as president that has what it takes to transform the fortunes of this country after 5 years in opposition.
“I want you to ask yourselves one question…what is the one policy that the NDC and their leader Mahama have thought about in these 5 years in opposition that they have brought to the people of Ghana…somebody should give me one idea that has emerged from the NDC in these 5 years that will bring about progress for Ghana. The answer is zero…not [even] one single idea” an energized President Akufo-Addo said.
President Akufo-Addo made the above-mentioned pronouncement at the NPP’s annual delegates conference held in Kumasi on December 19, 2021.
President Akufo-Addo furthered that while in opposition, his party outlined a number of interventions it intended to roll out once it assumed the reigns of the country.
He stated that for this reason, his government was able to hit the ground running in the implementation of the flagship programmes since it had previously thought through it in opposition.
Soo many of the programmes that we brought, we thought about them when we were in opposition. Free Senior High School, One District One Factory, One Village One Dam, the digital agenda …all of these programmes that are our flagship programmes…we thought about them in opposition so that when we came into government, we were ready to roll them out that’s why we have been able to do them.”
