With barely seven months to the general elections in Ghana, the incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC) led by President John Dramani Mahama, has been working to complete major projects in order to garner votes at the upcoming polls in November this year. The President, since April this year, has been meeting various sections of Ghanaians and stakeholders through his “Accounting to the people tour” to convince the nation to vote him for a second tenure in office.
Hon. Benjamin Kpodo, Member of Parliament in the incumbent government lauded the initiative for the president to account to the people in order to show his commitment to the nation through the several projects executed by the government. “Our government has been working hard for the people of Ghana and our commitment has reflected in the construction of roads, Community Senior High Schools, hospitals and more” he stressed.
Meanwhile, a member of the opposition New Patriotic Party and Parliamentary Candidate for Ho West Constituency in the Volta Region of Ghana, Isaac Kwame Adika, described the administration of the current government as a failure. “When the incumbent government want to impress Ghanaians by embarking on projects at the eleventh hour, do you call that accountability to the people?” he questioned. “It’s pretty sad that they want a second tenure but Ghanaians would disappoint them in the upcoming polls this year” he told News Time Africa. “Before we left power in 2008 Ghana’s total debt was Gh9.5billion. In the last seven years under NDC it is now Gh99 billion”, he added.
