Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for Bolgatanga Central, Isaac Adongo, has incurred the wrath of Ghanaians for saying this party will use common sense to transform the economy when they come into power.
Mr. Adongo who is also a member of the Finance Committee in Parliament had earlier stated that the NDC intends to return to the ‘basics’ and introduce ‘common sense’ in managing the economy because the NPP has failed Ghanaians.
“We will go back to the basics. The basics are to deepen the financial sector to make more credits availble to the business community. That will begin to create more jobs because this syndrome of unemployment we see is because, for three solid years, SMEs have not received any funding. The private sector has been starved of funding and they are unable to produce. Secondly, We will introduce basic common sense. This common sense is to ensure that, we improve our fiscal management by generating more revenue and not what they [NPP] are doing today. All the time, it’s the same value they measure which doesn’t achieve anything," he said.
But several social media users were not happy about his statement after his story had gone viral. They wondered why the NDC did not use common sense to tranform the economy between 2008 and 2016 when they were in power.

According to Shatta Wale, stakeholders and gatekeepers in the industry who are supposed to be interested in pushing the Ghanaian music industry, only concern themselves with talking about people's private lives.
