In an earlier report by YEN.com.gh, President Akufo-Addo declared that he is ready to protect the environment even if it costs him the 2020 elections.
According to him, it is important to ensure that the environment is protected for the benefit of the present and future generations.
In that respect, it becomes clear that the president is ready to contest yet again for the highest seat of the land.
Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
His administration has become synonymous with unique feats since it assumed the reins of power after the 2016 elections.
Some of them, if not all, may very likely set the standard for a possible win in the 2020 elections if the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) plays its cards right.
YEN.com.gh has sampled five important achievements that make give the present government yet another opportunity to continue its work up until December 2024:
1. Year of Return:
The Year of Return agenda has shot Ghana’s tourism potential to astronomical heights. Big names such as actor Samuel L. Jackson, Steve Harvey, Ludacris and Rick Ross have travelled to Ghana to identify themselves with the significant celebration of the 400-year anniversary of the slave trade. President Akufo-Addo recently launched the second phase of the project dubbed "Beyond the Return".
2. Ekumfi juice factory:
An earlier report by YEN.com.gh indicated that the fruit factory located at Ekumfi in the Central region is ready for commissioning.
The factory is part of the 1 District-1 Factory programme implemented by the current administration.
The 1D1F programme is expected to facilitate the creation of between 7,000 to 15,000 jobs per district, and between 1.5 million and 3.2 million nationwide by the end of 2020.
3. Reduction in car import bills:
In April 2019, the government announced a reduction in the duties charged on imported cars. The government explained that it was ready to reduce benchmark values of imported goods and auto vehicles by 50% and 30% respectively.
4. Bumper harvest:
The minister for agriculture, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, is reported to have once stated that reduction in prices of food items have made them so affordable that some of them are exported to neighbouring countries. He added that the government had therefore eliminated hunger from Ghana.
5. Planting for food & jobs:
The minister further indicated that the Planting For Food & Jobs programme initiated by the government has become so effective that there is abundance of food in the northern part of the country.
This followed the launch of the programme by the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
In other news, Shan Cureton, a mother of three children, has started a transportation service for children living in the greater San Diego area.
The business, known as Kiddie Commute, is the only Black woman-owned transportation company in the state.
YEN.com.gh understands that it is also the only comprehensive service which serves the needs of parents and caregivers and offers safety and reliability.
Cureton, per a report by blacknews.com, revealed that Kiddie Commute was created purely out of a need.
According to her, “I am a busy working mother. At the time, I worked and went to school full time. My youngest son was in Kindergarten, I had another son in middle school, and a daughter in high school. It was challenging picking up my youngest son from class in the middle of the day when I had to work or be in class.”
