The New Patriotic Party (NPP) deceived Ghanaians to win political power, according to the former chief executive officer of the GNPC, Alex Mould.

Addressing some NDC students at the University of Cape Coast (UCC) campus on Saturday, October 5, 2019, Mr. Mould noted that Ghanaians owe former president John Dramani Mahama a depth of gratitude.
He said the NDC 2020 flag bearer worked for Ghanaians to reshape their destinies compared to President Akufo-Addo’s litany of promises he has failed to deliver on.
“We all heard, 1 District 1 Factory, 1 Village 1 Dam, US$1 million per constituency per a year, Free SHS, reduction of cost of electricity etc”.
“All these pipe dreams were to deceive Ghanaians in order to gain power. Yet, how many of them have they been able to achieve? All we see now is: ‘One Week One Fraud, One Week One Scandal, One Week One Thief, One Week One Deception,” Mr Mould quipped.

Mr. Mould also noted that the Free SHS programme being touted by the NPP is not a new thing, saying it is a progressive program enshrined in Ghana’s 1992 constitution.
“My problem with Free SHS as implemented by this government is equity. One cardinal ingredient of any social intervention policy is to bridge the gap between the lowest quintiles and the highest quintiles in the society. This FSHS is rather widening the gap because the non-poor too are benefiting. So the richer is getting richer by not paying what he/she could afford to pay,” he stated.
