Nana Addo’s promises are only solutions to tackling the problems in the country, he has stated.
The Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Addo, has explained that the promises he made to bring about change in some sectors of the country’s economy, are not literally promises; but solutions to revamping the ailing economy.
The NPP Presidential hopeful made this known when he paid a courtesy call on the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs, in Dodowa, at the commencement of his 4-day tour of the Greater Accra Region, on Tuesday.
According to him, he is not making promises but rather solutions to the problems in the country. Nana Addo who shed light on his ‘proposals’ told the Greater Accra chiefs that, he can implement all his solutions only if he is voted for in the coming elections.
Nana Addo has made several promises to Ghanaians, ahead of this year’s elections in December. Some of them include; 1 factory for 1 district, 1 dam for 1 village, the effective implementation of the Free SHS policy, among others. His promises, however, have attracted lots of criticisms from Ghanaians, including political stakeholders, who have gone as far as making a mockery of them.
Furthermore, policy think tank, IMANI who analysed various promises made by contending political parties ahead of the elections, had said that only one out of Nana Addo’s promises is measurable; fueling more criticisms against the party’s flagbearer.
But Nana Addo has remained undeterred, as he maintains he will implement every ‘solution’ he has offered Ghanaians. Speaking to the Greater Accra chiefs, Nana Addo shed light on some of the policies he has promised to create.
On the ‘one factory one district’ policy, he said;
“We are not going to do this alone as a government, but we will encourage public-private partnerships.”
The NPP flagbearer also promised to boost employment opportunities in the country.
Accusing the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government of destroying the foundations laid by the Kufuor administration, he promised to restore the nation back to the path of prosperity if given the nod on December 7.
