…Demands apology to Ghanaians for failing to deliver 100 days in office
Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the general secretary of the National Democratic Congress, has urged the ruling NPP government to offer an unqualified apology to Ghanaians for failing to deliver some key promises it made to Ghanaian during the government 100 days in office.
According to him the Akufo-Addo government has failed woefully in its 100 days in office and must do the right thing by apologizing to them for misleading them, and stop the deceit of recounting some of the achievements left behind by the NDC government as their 100 days’ achievements.
Mr. Nketia, popularly called ‘General Mosquito,’ was responding to the recent comments made by Vice President Dr. Mahumudu Bawumia at a town hall meeting in Accra to propagate the 100 days’ achievements of the NPP government.
He questioned the sort of achievements the NPP government has chalked and reiterated the government’s failure in the provision of security to its citizens within its 100 days in office.
Expressing his disgust for the huge government appointments, numbering about 110, within which there are six appointees responsible for security matters of the country, Mr. Asiedu Nketia said with the appointment of Minister for National Security, National Security Coordinator, Security Advisor and Minister of Defense, together with two deputies, there has been a massive breakdown of security in the country, as a result of the activities of NPP vigilante groups, including Invincible Force, Delta Force and Action Troopers.
Mr. Asiedu Nketiah further revealed that NPP government has failed in all the sectors of the Ghanaian economy and need to step up its game to address the various economic challenges facing the nation.
He mentioned the immediate and significant reduction of electricity and water tariffs, immediate and significant reduction of fuel prices by abolishing the Energy Sector Levy, payment of contractors owed within the first 100 days in government, the full restoration and payment of nursing and teachers’ trainee allowance, Free SHS, One District, One Factory, abolishing of taxes, among others, as promises made to Ghanaian electorate by the NPP as some of the promises they would ensure that it achieved within the NPP 100 days in office, but unfortunately all turned out to be a mirage.
