Founder of policy think tank, Imani Africa, Franklin Cudjoe has praised the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) for the work they have done to strengthen the Ghana economy.
According to Mr. Cudjoe, the NPP has done more on the economy than they highlighted.
His assertion follows the NPP’s Town Hall Meeting and Results Fair which took place in the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi on Tuesday, February 11, 2020.
Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia outlined what he called the data evidence of the NPP’s achievements since it came into power in January 2017.
Dr. Bawumia opined that the Akufo-Addo led administration has chalked 78% success in terms of achievement of its manifesto promises to the country.
But the policy think tank analyst said on Joy News that the NPP are understating their achievements. Mr Cudjoe noted that Imani Afirca’s assessment of the government’s work indicate they have done far more than what Dr. Bawumia stated during the town hall fair.
"If you look at the area of the economy for instance, we at IMANI believe government has done fantastically well and that ought to be highlighted,” he said.
"I think they [NPP] have done far better in infrastructure than they think they have”, Mr Cudjoe noted.
Meanwhile, Ghanaians have also expressed mixed feelings about the performance and achievement of the NPP in the last three years.
On of such persons is the founder of the All People’s Congress (APC), Mr Hassan Ayariga, has rated the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government 37 per cent as far as its performance is concerned.
According to Mr Ayariga, the current administration has failed on almost all the promises it made to Ghanaians ahead of the 2016 general elections.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the minister in charge of the Ashanti Region of Ghana, Simon Osei-Mensah has told residents and citizens he is not responsible for the killings and unresolved murder cases recorded in his region in the last one year.
According to the minister, it is unfair for anyone to hold him responsible for the safety of residents in their homes.
Mr. Osei-Mensah’s comment comes on the back of growing insecurity and killings in the region, with the recent being the murder of a nurse.
