“What They Destroyed In 8-Years, NPP Restored In Less Than 4-Years” – Bawumia
The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has hit hard at opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) saying what they destroyed in their 8-years in government has been restored by the NPP in less than 4-years in power.
According to Dr. Bawumia, Ghanaians have only once choice to protect and build upon the progress of the country.
Speaking on the Future of Ghana’s Economy in Accra, the Vice President said “Ladies and gentlemen, it is obvious to everyone by now that there is a major difference between an Akufo-Addo Presidency and a Mahama Presidency. What NDC destroyed in 8years, Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP have restored in less than 4 years. We have only one choice ahead of us for the next four (4) years. And that choice is to protect and build upon our progress as a nation”
He also explained that bringing back John Mahama and NDC will mean going back into the days of darkness and a broken economy.
“By the grace of God, in the next Akufo-Addo government, within the context of our overall vision of a Ghana Beyond Aid, we will focus on delivering the following key outcomes: o We will continue to stimulate growth through investments in the real sector of the economy, particularly in agriculture and digitization. o We will support industrialization and accelerate our efforts in agriculture modernization, provide support for farmers and improve linkages with industry mainly through 1D1F”
Speaking on consolidating the implementation of Free SHS and Free TVET programs, he hinted that the NPP will ensure all SHS graduates who pass their exams will have access to the University or other tertiary institutions.
On digitization, the Vice President hinted that the NPP in its next four years will build a digital services economy through the expansion of the Ghana Innovation Hub project to nurture startups to accelerate the development of applications software, provide regional e-backroom services, and enterprise-level software.
“We will digitize the land registry next year to enable automation in the registration of land as well as checking of title to land”, he said.
