WHEN SAME HAPPEN TO NPP DONT CRY.

.. Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, the New Patriotic Party’s running mate to Nana Akufo-Addo, has remarked that the John Mahama government seems to be more committed to themselves and schemes that will make their pockets fatter than in delivering on their core mandate of developing the nation and reducing the hardships of the people.

Dr Bawumia observed that this seems to be the reason why there is always money for scandalous schemes and projects that obviously end up enriching officials and cronies of the government, but there is always none when it comes to money for development and social investment.

Nana Akufo-Addo’s running mate made the comments in Offinso in the Ashanti Region on the first day of his three-day tour of the region.

He said “the NDC came to meet a debt of GHS9.5billion, which had been accrued from1957 to 2008, but in only 8 years the NDC has moved our debt from GHS9.5billion to GHS110 billion. 90% of Ghana’s debt has, therefore, been accrued just in these last eight years. Again, when one sums up all the taxes and loans, the NPP accrued onlyGHS20 billion for all the work we did. The NDC in eight years have had GHS248 billion from loans and taxes.”

Dr. Bawumia wondered why after so much resources, the NDC had still succeeded in making times hard for the ordinary Ghanaian and ended up collapsing almost all social intervention programmes.

“Despite all these resources, however, this government cannot pay what it has to pay to the National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA), it cannot sustain the School Feeding Programme, National Youth Employment Programme or Free Maternal Care programme; they have cancelled Teacher Training and Nursing Training Allowances, they are owing contractors and cannot pay the School Feeding Grants too,” he said.
