National Organiser of the New Patriotic Party, Sammi Awuku, is confident the NPP will win the elections on their policy records. Since assuming power in 2017, the NPP has roll-out policies and programs that are positively impacting the wellbeing of Ghanaians, despite the challenges.
Speaking at the NPP ROUND 2 VIRTUAL RALY organized by the HOPE Campaign, Mr. Awuku said the elections in December 7th will be between the records of the two parties.
“(Again) with the government renewed focus in agriculture, most Ghanaian youth are proud to go to agriculture, through the planting for food and jobs program.”
Apart from addressing the power outages locally known as “dumsor”, which led to the collapse of business operations in the country and made life uncomfortable for the general population, the government has gone ahead to roll out the Free Senior High School (FSHS) policy, an ambitious program that is targeted at improving the quality of Ghana’s human resource, for the future.
The policy creates an even field for every child of school going age especially those from low income communities, to access pre tertiary education without any financial burden.
Mr. Awuku said it took a “courageous” leader like President Nana Akufo Addo to roll-out the FSHS policy the opposition NDC said was impossible to be done.
Again, the party has rollout the 1D1F policy, Planting for Food and Jobs, as well as the distribution of over 200 state of the art ambulances to the more than 200 constituencies in the country. The government has absorbed a good number of unemployed youth into jobs, through the youth employment program NABCO.
The government continues to make enormous investments in technology including the Zipline project, where much needed blood is air lighted through the use of drones. The scheme has saved the lives of patients especially pregnant women who had in the past lost their lives because of lack of access to blood.
Sheila Bartels, NPP MP Aspirant for Ablekuma North Constituency, appealed to the electorates to retain the government into power, because they have good policies to improve their lives.
Ms. Bartels, who is founding member of the HOPE Campaign, said retaining for another four years will open job creation opportunities for most of the youth in the constituency.
Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Information Minister and MP for Ofoase Ayirebi in the Eastern region, said the election is about which of the two parties have brought significant improvements in the lives of the electorates.
Other speakers were Mr. Yoofi Grant, Ama Frempong and Akosua Manu from the National Youth Employment Agency.
Ms. Manu said the HOPE campaign will continue to engage citizens in another virtual rally, which will highlights other important achievements of President Nana Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia’s leadership.
The HOPE campaign is a group of young professionals drawn from different backgrounds, who offer critical policy support to the government.
