NDC vows to pressure Akufo-Addo over campaign promises

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has vowed to give President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo a tough time when he is sworn in as president of the Republic of Ghana.

The Member of Parliament for Wa West in the Upper West Region, Joseph Yieleh Chireh, told Accra-based Citi FM that the NDC would pressure Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to fulfill all their campaign promises.

Yieleh Chireh said, however, that he did not expect Akufo-Addo to fulfill all the promises because, according to him, they were impossible to realise.

“…It is not practically possible for you [NPP] to be reducing taxes and promising to provide more facilities but we are in Parliament and we want to see. They should not bring any excuse. Of course, they knew the state of affairs and they said they were coming to manage,” he said.

The MP vowed that whatever the case, the NDC would apply pressure on the NPP and would not accept any excuse for failure.

He said the NPP did not accept excuses from the NDC and so should expect similar hostility from the NDC.
