NPP targets new trajectory for Ghana’s dev’t
Minority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has indicated that the incoming Nana Akufo-Addo-led government has set its sights on an economic path that will spur development.
“We are putting this nation on a new trajectory of real national development that will affect the good people of this country,” the legislator for Suame constituency told Class FM’s Paa Kwesi Parker Wilson shortly after the National Executive Committee (NEC) meeting of the NPP on Thursday, December 14.
The meeting was held at the party’s headquarters to discuss the list of appointees of the incoming administration from January 2017.
The flag bearer of the main opposition party, Nana Akufo-Addo, beat sitting President John Mahama and five other candidates by securing 53.85 per cent of valid votes to become Ghana’s fifth president in the Fourth Republic.
Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu argued that the economy did not perform well under Mr Mahama, so a lot of changes needed to be instituted to revamp the economy.
He indicated that the economy was not in the best of shapes and “needs repositioning, which will depend on a new policy orientation which the party is committed to”.
