Former president John Agyekum Kufuor has insisted that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government left behind a huge economic mess in the country which will take at least 20 years for a committed government to clear.
He said the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has solutions to the massive rot that the NDC bequeathed to Ghanaians during the last eight years, but the NPP needs at least five political victories (20 years), to bring the needed transformation.
“The NPP has the DNA to always implement pragmatic policies and programmes to develop the country, but the huge rot that the NDC left behind, we need at least four to five electoral victories to clear it and bring about growth,” the former president noted.
Mr. Kufuor observed that the country was virtually at a standstill as there was no clear direction or policy for development during the eight years that the NDC was at the helm of affairs.
In this regard, Mr. Kufuor entreated Ghanaians to retain the NPP government in office for a longer time so that it can once-and-for-all, bring about the needed renaissance for the people to enjoy.
He was addressing NPP delegates during the party’s annual Delegates’ Conference in the Central Regional capital of Cape Coast over the weekend. It was under the theme, ‘NPP: Delivering On Our Promises, Our Roots, Our Strength, Our Future.’
It was graced by top notches of the party, including President Nana Akufo-Addo and his wife, Rebecca; Vice President Bawumia and his wife, Samira; Freddie Blay, Acting NPP National Chairman; John Boadu, Acting General Secretary; Sammi Awuku, National Youth Organiser; ministers of state and MMDCEs, among others.
