NDC Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has vehemently refuted claims that he was an NPP member during his days at the University of Ghana, Legon

He has therefore challenged those making such allegations to prove with evidence of his membership.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, he explained that he has never been a member of the ruling party and will never be.

"Though I had most of my friends from the NPP during my Legon days I never expressed interest in joining the party."

"This year’s election is going to be a contest of ideas but not one of personality vilification so some elements like Adomako Baafi in the New Patriotic Party should concentrate on making known their achievement in Ghana than spending precious time on radio to vilify me," he said.

"We have put them to strict prove, so they should come and give accounts of their stewardship to the people of Ghana," he added.

NDC scores NPP's achievement

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has scored the Akufo-Addo administration 14 per cent on the fulfilment of its 2016 campaign promises.

Presenting a detailed assessment of promises made by the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) at a press briefing Monday, North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said only 86 out of the 631 campaign promises made have been delivered.

"You made tonnes of promises in your manifesto you are not delivering and you’ve even tried to conceal a lot of them and you come to power and you still make more of them."

“The thing is, when you come to power, you focus on delivering what you have promised not to be making more promises,” he stressed.

Mr. Okudzeto Ablakwa further highlighted that the assessment, therefore, contradicts an earlier claim of the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia that the government has achieved 78% of what it promised four years ago.
