The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has challenged the largest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to come out with alternatives to the government’s programmes instead its hallucinatory antics.
Reacting to claims by the NDC that the President Akufo Addo was running a family and friends government, the National Youth Organiser of the NPP, Henry Nana Boakye said at a press conference that the NDC had no better alternative ideas so it had resorted to ranting over baseless issues to divert the attention of Ghanaians from the government’s good policies.
“The NPP as a government would not be distracted by the illusive antics of the NDC because the NPP is committed to fulfilling the mandate Ghanaians gave to us”, he said.
He said President Akufo-Addo had not failed to deliver on his promises, pointing out that the Free Senior High School education, Planting for Food and Jobs and the Nation Builder’s Corps (NABCO) programmes had all been introduced to make life better for the ordinary Ghanaian.
Nana Boakye stated that people appointed to serve under the Akufo-Addo-led administration were qualified and competent people who deserved where they had been put to serve.
“The NDC should not expect the President to appoint his enemies to steer the affairs of the state”, he added.
He denied claims that Vida Asante, the mother of the Executive Secretary to the President, Nana Bediatuo Asante was on government payroll.
