He has argued that government has spent less than 3 months in office of the four year mandate given to them, hence promises made by government are to be fulfilled within that period.
He said, “every political party has a four-year cycle.”
“We have done a one-year budget out of four, so, if I make 10 pledges and in one budget I fulfil six and [then] you say I am running away from pledges?” he quested.
He said the manifesto presented by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) is a four-year manifesto and going forward “we will tackle other problems”.

For him, “if anyone thinks that all the pledges by government will be fulfilled in one year, then you are being utopian”.
He was responding to issues raised by the Minority and other commentators over problems not addressed in the budget presented by the Finance Minister recently.
In an interview with Accra-based Joy FM on Friday, 10 March, Mr Osafo Marfo was optimistic the Akufo-Addo government will fulfil most of its campaign promises.
