NDC and NPP have left Ghana disabled - Greenstreet
Speaking at the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) Evening Encounter series on Tuesday, Mr Greenstreet said the policies of the two political parties have brought untold hardships on Ghanaians.
“Just look around you, despite all the shouting about poverty declining, recent statistics show that 30 percent of the populations is poor, with 19 percent extremely poor,” he said.
“We also have a creeping urbanization, sanitation and housing crises. For example, just imagine, 53 percent of households in Accra is said to occupy a single room; inflations is up to 19 percent with interests rates at 35 percent, and the cost of living is so, so high for the ordinary Ghanaians.
“Five million Ghanaians do not have access to toilets; Ghana is second in Africa after Sudan for open defecation and second in cholera after Nigeria; over 29,000 Ghanaians were affected by Cholera in 2014 and our national capital had 20,000 cases resulting in a 120 death.”
He therefore insisted that a CPP-led government, which is founded on “values of self-determination, social justice and pan-Africanism,” will transform the fortunes of the country.
“That is why I believe there is the new covenant with the people of Ghana, that is what the CPP is offering Ghanaians,” he said.
