Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has stated that the Akufo-Addo administration has delivered about 72 percent of promises made to Ghanaians.
Bawumia said the New Patriotic Party (NPP), which inherited a government that could not pay its bills, has transformed into one of the fastest growing economies in the world.
Speaking at the NPP's National Delegates Conference, he threw an open challenge to the National Democratic Congress(NDC) to mention one social intervention programme they implemented in their 8-years in office.

“We told the people of Ghana that we are are going to do three core things. We are going to stabilize the economy, reduce the suffering of our people, and transform this economy into a modern and prosperous economy.
“We have either delivered completely or we are delivering on 72% and we are going to put the data out so that everyone will go promise by promise and see whether we are delivering or we have delivered. We will put the data out because we have done the work,” he added.
He further noted that the government has restored economic growth to the country.
