“NDC has no record to defend in 2020 elections”-Akufo-Addo

President Akufo-Addo who is seeking for another fours mandate from the people of Ghana come December 7, 2020 is of confidence that, the New Patriotic Party (NPP)has over performed within its three years in office that, the NDC flagbearer and former President John Mahama has no record to defend in the 2020 elections.

According to him, Ghanaians are over willing to reward the NPP with another victory in the 2020 polls because of the party performance in government so far.

The President of the Republic His Execellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was speaking at the just ended 2019 annual delegates conference of the NPP at the Trade Fair Centre in Accra.

To him, “The question that the Ghanaian people are going to ask our opponents is that “what are they coming back to do? what’s the programme of the NDC under the leadership of John Mahama? what was the programme? what is the record they are coming to defend in 2020?.

Stressing that, “There is strong support from the Ghanaian people everywhere I go I see a large crowd and people of enthusiasm following me everywhere I go. They are the ones who started the slogan ‘four more for Nana’”.

Indicating that, Ghana as a country cannot develop without the NPP.

“The transformation of Ghana that the Ghanaian people are looking for cannot take place without the NPP because NPP is the only party that move the nation in its forward march”, he acclaimed.

Taking his turn to address delegates, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia revealed that, government will soon make public its data confirming their performance rate relative to their manifesto promises since assuming office in 2016.

According to him, the NPP has either delivered completely on the promises or at 72 per cent rate of delivery on most of the promises. 

“After just 3 years in office, we can say without any shadow of a doubt that we have fulfiled at least 72 % of the promises we made to Ghanaians.

Adding, “We have either delivered completely or we are delivering at least 72% and we will put it out there for everyone to see”.

It comes days after President Akufo-Addo gave the figure in his reaction to IMANI’s rating of his government in the delivery of manifesto promises. 

“I disagree with the 48 assessment by IMANI. I think we deserve much higher for as a government, we are looking at 72 because we have a fundamental disagreement with that rating.

“Our figure is the one we are working with and it’s the right one,” he noted at his 3rd encounter with the media in Accra.

Earlier on, IMANI Africa scored the Akufo-Addo government 48.78% in the delivery of its campaign promises so far.
