‘NPP’s economy mismanagement will bring NDC back’ – Anita Desoso
A National Vice Chairperson of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Anita Desoso has said the New Patriotic Party’s mismanagement of the Ghanaian economy would return her party to power.
According to Madam Desoso, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government has destroyed the sound policies instituted by the NDC.
Speaking in an interview with Citi News, Madam Desoso said the government’s action would make it easy for the NDC to win the 2020 election.
“Business people are crying, workers are crying, electricity is up, height insurance I learnt it would be cancelled soon, nurses are crying, drivers are crying this shoes the economy is not doing well,” she said.
She mentioned that an economy that is doing well would have reflected on how cheap goods and services are at a lower price for a more that than half of the population.
Madam Desoso stated that the government had increased unemployment rate by replacing people employed by the NDC in community policing program the NPP government but was never the case when they were in power.
“Of late things are different, and when you talk to them, they will tell you to say different things all together. Just imagine community police we employed about 5000 with other YEA workers about 65000. Community police their term is over, and they told them to leave, now you are recruiting your own people. Meanwhile NDC we do not do that. Now about 60,000 by July ending would be laid off,” she said.
She blamed Ghanaians the current state of our economy by refusing what God gave to us.
She later attributed all the economic challenges to the fact that Ghanaians stubbornness by not humbly taking what God gave them.
“it is God who has made it be so. If God gives you something, no matter what it is, appreciate God, we said we do not want what God wants, we want what we want, and God has given him to us,” she said.
The Ghana Police Service is to recruit 15,000 Community Police Assistants this month through the Youth Employment Agency (YEA).
The youth, who would be employed, would be from the communities, and focus would be on those who are familiar with their communities and could help the police in gathering intelligence to help reduce crime in the country.
