The New Patriotic Party (NPP) deceived Ghanaians to win political power, as per the previous CEO of the GNPC, Alex Mold.
Tending to some NDC understudies at the University of Cape Coast (UCC) grounds on Saturday, October 5, Mr. Shape noticed that Ghanaians additionally owe previous president John Dramani Mahama a profundity of appreciation. He said the NDC 2020 banner conveyor worked for Ghanaians to reshape their fates contrasted with President Akufo-Addo’s reiteration of guarantees he has neglected to convey on.
“We all heard, 1 District 1 Factory, 1 Village 1 Dam, US$1 million per constituency per year, Free SHS, reduction of cost of electricity etc”.
“All these pipe dreams were to deceive Ghanaians in order to gain power. Yet, how many of them have they been able to achieve? All we see now is: ‘One Week One Fraud, One Week One Scandal, One Week One Thief, One Week One Deception,” according to Mr. Mould.
Mr. Mould also noted that the Free SHS programme being touted by the NPP is not a new thing, saying it is a progressive program enshrined in Ghana’s 1992 constitution. “My problem with Free SHS as implemented by this government is equity. One cardinal ingredient of any social intervention policy is to bridge the gap between the lowest quintiles and the highest quintiles in the society. This FSHS is rather widening the gap because the non-poor too are benefiting. So the richer is getting richer by not paying what he/she could afford to pay,” he stated.
