NPP promises port construction at James Town and Keta if given the nod come December
The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has made yet another promise to Ghanaians ahead of the 2016 elections. The party has promised to construct new ports at James Town and Keta if elected into office. The party has also said it will construct an inland port at Buipe in the Northern Region.
NPP Sector Committee Chairman on Infrastructure and Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joe Ghartey, made the promises while addressing journalists in Accra, on Tuesday. According to him, the major opposition party has a plan to improve the country’s infrastructure. Joe Ghartey’s comment comes days after the party launched its 2016 manifesto on October 9, 2016 at the Accra Trade Fair Centre.
Ghartey said that his party if given the mandate come December, will liaise with the private sector to develop the Volta River into an artillery and also provide “modern ferry ports…at locations such as Buipe, Yaipei, Yeji, Bosu and Kete Krachi”.
NPP promises port construction at James Town and Keta, adding that it will continue the expansion of the Tema harbor as well as the Takoradi harbor which it plans to extend to Sekondi.
The NPP at their manifesto launch, made series of promises to the people of Ghana which they assured will all be fulfilled if given the nod. The party among other things, promised to build factories in every district in Ghana as well as make available to each constituency, an amount of $1 million as part of its social intervention programmes.
Ghana heads to the polls on December 7. NPP Flagbearer, Nana Akufo Addo will compete against President Mahama who is vying for a second term, and other Presidential candidates of other political parties.
