The opposition New Patriotic Party will neither acknowledge nor praise the NDC for its achievements since 1992. This is according to Vice President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur.

The Vice President was speaking at an event at the Banquet Hall of the State House where President Mahama gave highlights of the NDC’s manifesto for the 2016 election.

“On 15th December last year, we launched our progress report, ‘Accounting to the people’. Since then, our opponents have tried to dismiss the reality that we depict in that document seeking to belittle our achievements and claiming among others that, as a government, we have benefited from more resources that any other government in the history of our country. And they have used nominal figures to show this. They have also tried to show that the physical development that we see, are not the results of the plans that we’ve implemented. They’ve also said that the projects have cost more than they should.” 

“In a sense, this denial that our opponents try to make is similar to the political tricks that they have engaged in and employed since 1992 when they accused the NDC government then. Political tricks that seek to deny the progress we have made. Change is a word we refuse to concede to the opposition because we consider ourselves to be the real agents of change in our change. I can appreciate the dilemma of the opposition” because they cannot stand the achievements of government.”

The Vice President said even though the NDC has achieved a lot in since it took office, they also realise there is still more work to done for Ghana to be a better place.

“Our belief is that our successes are not enough and we can always improve on it. Therefore we strive to do better every time.”

In so doing he said the NDC’s manifesto which is to be launched on September 17 is based on four key areas.

“The four areas are; Putting people first, Strong and resilient economy for job creation, expanding social and economic infrastructure and transparent and accountable governance,” he said.
