TITLE: Ghanaians Must Be Weary Of Npp/Nana Akufo Addo’S Sweet Promises
I wish to advise Ghanaians to be weary of NPP/Nana Akufo Addo’s sweet promises.
It has become necessary for me to send out this advice; because at the recent NPP rally at Kasoa, I heard Nana Akufo Addo promising Ghanaians that when elected he will make Secondary or High School education in the country absolutely free of charge, amongst many other promises.
What Nana Addo failed to add was at least a single sentence explaining how he was going to fund such a project.
I am basing my argument on the fact that at the recent IEA Presidential forum organized for Nana Addo, a questioner asked Nana Addo to explain why the NPP promised to make the position of DCE/MCE’s an elective one, but have not been able to implement that policy. Nana Addo’s answer essentially was to the effect that when they got into office they realized that it was not feasible to implement it. The list of such examples are endless including President Kufour’s own assertion that he could not reduced the number of his ministers as promised during his campaign for the 2000 elections. “A physician who does not diagnose his patient well before prescribing medication can at best be described as a quark doctor-and that is NPP for you”
Therefore if Nana Addo is promising Ghanaians “Heaven on Earth”, I wish to advise Ghanaians not to take such promises at the face value, but rather ask the pertinent questions of how he is going to fund such projects and schemes. I believe, the era of vague promises by politicians must be frowned upon by all Ghanaians.
