This, the Vice President believes, makes the current government stand out when it comes to achievements, as compared to previous administrations.

“He has done so much in 18 months that many other governments were not able to do in 8 years,” Dr. Bawumia said during Saturday’s visit to the Muslim community in the Upper East Region to commemorate the month of Ramada.

“The President assumed office with a very difficult economy. He has been at work for the past 18 months now. By the grace of the Almighty God, he has been able to do a lot of things he promised this country he was going to do.”

He was able to relieve a lot of our farmers by introducing the Free Senior High School [Policy] which has brought tremendous relief to many people who have their children in senior high schools.”

He added: “He was able to reintroduce the Teacher Trainee Allowance, which many thought was not possible. He has been able to reintroduce the Nursing Trainee Allowance. He has been able to reduce the price of electricity.”
