My best yet to come – Akufo-Addo assures
Those under the impression that they have seen the best of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration must quickly revise their notes because President Akufo-Addo has promised to roll out more pragmatic programmes to improve the lives of the citizens in the coming years.
According to the President, his administration mainly used the initial months in office to assess the mess that the previous administration left behind after eight years in power.
The president disclosed that the investigation, which was carried out by the NPP administration, led to the exposure of corruption in the banking sector of the country.
President Akufo-Addo, who was very confident, emphatically stated that his administration, despite introducing several positive policies, has a lot of programmes to improve the lives of the people.
“My NPP government is focused more on investigating how our predecessors, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government, managed the country when they were in political office for eight years.
“Otumfuo, some of the outcome of the thorough investigations conducted by my government during our first-year in office is the canker that was recently unearthed in the financial sector,” he indicated.
The president, who was addressing a durbar at the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi, as part of his tour of the Ashanti Region, said now that investigations are almost over, the time has come to roll out more policies to improve the lives of the people.
“My government, as we approach the end of the second-year in office, is going to focus mainly on fulfilling most of our campaign promises in our manifesto, which are programmed to help accelerate national development and create wealth.
President Akufo-Addo, who spoke fluent Twi, said hopefully by the time he completes his first term in office, the citizenry would have experienced positive changes in their lives.
In just 18 months, the NPP administration has introduced several positive policies, including the free Senior High School (SHS), ‘One District, One Factory, ‘Planting for Food and Jobs,’ among others.
The event was attended by chiefs and some ministers of state such as Dr Matthew Opoku-Prempeh, aka ‘Napo,’ Yaw Osafo Marfo, Alan Kyeremanten, Amoako Atta, Kan Dapaah, Hajia Alima Mahama and several others.
