President of IMANI Centre for Policy and Education, Franklin Cudjoe has stated that ever since the incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC) took office in 2012, the administration has only fulfilled 5 out of the 501 promises made in their manifesto.
Elaborating on four of the promises, Mr Cudjoe indicated that:
“Single-digit inflation obviously has not materialised; an 8% GDP growth annual has not also materialised. There was a budget deficit figure also in the realm of a single-digit, which obviously has not also materialised.”

To him, not even the NDC can boast of the economy’s performance as one of its best achievements thus criticing government for inflating the cost of the renovation of the Tamale and the Kumasi Airport runways, but lauded its efforts on the Ridge Hospital project.
Government spent US$23,829,247.4 on rehabilitation of the Kumasi Airport while the cost of renovation and upgrading of the Tamale Airport was estimated at $100 million for the runway, alone.
