“  The NPP’s achievements in the region are uncountable. A typical example is the Ho Polytechnic. Even the students of the University of Ghana were jealous at the level of infrastructural investment we made in the University.”

Former president John Agyekum Kufuor added that “ It was under the NPP’s administration that the Keta Sea Defence Project that had stalled for years was completed.
