- Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has admitted concerns of hardships and unemployment in the country
- The NPP official who is a family member to the president is hopeful Ghanaians would have patience with the Nana Addo administration
Well-known lawyer and figure within the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, has admitted that there is hardship in the Ghanaian economy.
The family member of the president on his Facebook page revealed that "there is hardship; there is unemployment, and it is fair to say that the majority of our people continue to struggle to make ends meet."
Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko on his Facebook page revealed that even though times are hard, the Akufo-Addo administration remains committed to fulfilling its promises.
Below is his full statement:
There is hardship, there is unemployment, and, it is fair to say that the majority of our people continue to struggle to make ends meet. The typical woes of a developing economy that had been recklessly managed.
But, it must also be made clear that there is a clear sense of direction on - not only where the Akufo-Addo government wants to go - but also where it is taking Ghana. And, where Govt is taking the nation is the right way and must be made to succeed.
I pray for two things: that Govt will find a workable balance between pursuing the big vision goal and responding to the necessary electoral cycle relief expectations, on the other hand. Again, that the people will have the information and the patience to keep faith with the NPP.
If we do not help the NPP to succeed then I don’t know... Ghana’s destiny is tied practically to the NPP succeeding. If in doubt just observe that the Ghanaian actually holds the NPP to a higher standard than the NDC. Trust me!
Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko had earlier urged all government appointees not to allow their personal interests override that of the government they are serving under. According to him, all current ministers and other appointees must look to emulate the selflessness of Akufo-Addo “when he was in your position”.
In a Facebook post, he subtly suggested that some appointees under the Akufo-Addo administration are being distracted by their personal ambitions, instead of concentrating on making the government successful.
It has been a year and some months since the NPP administration was sworn into office. President Akufo-Addo swore his oath of allegiance at the inauguration ceremony on January 7, 2017.
The success of the NPP administration was largely based on the ambitious and mouth-watering campaign promises the then-presidential candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo churned to millions of supporters and voters.
Just when the NPP administration chalked hundred days in office, the vice president came before Ghanaians and spelled out what he believed to be the 100 achievements of his administration in just a hundred days.
But it's been a year and some few months since the government took office and all too soon, some issues and concerns by most across the country - from joblessness to national security.
