The Northern Youth for Nana Akufo-Addo (NOYONAA) says
Ghanaians are discerning enough to identify the vast difference between the New Patriotic Party (NPP) three and half years and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) eight years in office.
NOYONAA said the claim of the NDC that President Akufo-Addo and the NPP has executed only 14 per cent of its promises was untrue and misleading.
A statement signed by Mr Abukari Ubaidullah, NOYONAA Northern Regional Coordinator and copied to the media said President Akufo-Addo administration achievements was unmatched and counted some of the projects executed by the government.
The statement mentioned the reduction of unemployment from 11.9 per cent in 2015 to 7.3 per cent in 2019, according to the Ghana Living Standards Survey and that if this reduction was a 14 per cent performance, then President Akufo-Addo deserves another four more years to reduce unemployment further.
It said the Free Senior High School programme introduce by President Akufo-Addo has won him international recognition, free registration for West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examination and the Basic Education Certificate Examination Candidates and the restoration of the Teacher Trainee Allowances.
The statement said the Planting for Food and Jobs under the Ministry of Food and Agriculture has registered 1.1 million farmers who have gotten access to a 703,000 metric tons of fertilizer.
“Also the food safety and security programme under the National Food Buffer Stock and the distribution of seeds and supply of fertilizer to farmers”.
It said on health, 307 ambulances were distributed to each constituency to facilitate the movement of patients from one destination to another and the restoration of the Nurses Trainee Allowance.
According to the statement, President Akufo-Addo declared 2020 as the year of roads of which the Northern Regional Capital, Tamale, is getting an Interchange to ease congestion in its town centre, the Pokuase interchange and the town roads across the country.
It said the peaceful manner in which the funerals of the Ya-Naa’s and the subsequent enskinment of the new Ya-Naa was a core promised fulfilled. This core promise has killed a major campaign message of the opposition party and the good people of Dagbon hail you for such singular leadership and love demonstrated for us.
“One-District-One-Factory, the Nations Builders Corps, One-Village-One-Dam, the $1million-One Constituency and National Identification Cards”.
According to the statement, Dumsor is now a thing of the past and the Petroleum sector improve on Daily basis.
It said President Akufo-Addo and the NPP have shown the difference between competence and incompetence and have proven that the black man is indeed capable of managing his own affairs not IMF.
The statement said: “it is normal to get a low mark when your examiner knows nothing about the subject matter. The NDC do not have any message for Ghanaians and resorts to fight any program from President Akufo-Addo leadership.”
NOYONAA congratulate President Akufo-Addo on his spectacular performance in lifting the image of Ghana and the standards of the citizenry.
It said the promises made by President Akufo-Addo during his campaign prior to the 2016 elections attracted lots of criticism from the NDC who said was not achievable anytime soon, “today they are praising for a 14 per cent work done, this means you will do more when you get four more years.”
“The track record of the NDC shows that anytime they say something they mean the exact opposite to what they say. A political party which after election 2016 declared that they were in a comfortable lead before results were declared by the electoral commission and when it was eventually declared they recorded the heaviest defeat ever in their political history.
“Even becoming President of Ghana, the NDC told Ghanaians that the Presidency was not for short people like President Akufo-Addo, but you have become the President”.
The statement added that the NDC won’t confess to this because of their political survival which was dead the first day you were elected.
