What to expect in NPP’s 2020 manifesto

Published

on

Details of the 2020 manifesto of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) remains a closely guarded secret ahead of an event to launch it on Saturday, August 21, 2020, in Cape Coast.

However, GhanaWeb has gotten a rare insight into the broad areas that the governing party’s 2020 manifesto will cover.

A highly placed source in the party has told GhanaWeb that the NPP manifesto for the 2020 campaign will detail the expansion plans for policies that have already been implemented.

That means policies that warmed up many Ghanaians to the Nana Akufo-Addo campaign in 2016, like the 1D1F, Planting for Food and Jobs, One-Village-One Dam etc would be expanded on in the 2020 manifesto.

On the economy, GhanaWeb is learning that the NPP 2020 manifesto will give forward-looking ideas on how to improve Ghana’s economy post the coronavirus pandemic.

“We will also use it to, more or less, show Ghanaians what we have done so far,” the highly placed source told GhanaWeb in an exclusive interview.

In a nutshell, the NPP 2020 manifesto is expected to provide a clear direction for Ghana’s future and catapult citizens into prosperity.

Meanwhile, the launch event Saturday will be held at the New Examinations Centres Hall of the University of Cape Coast and will be attended by a little over 120 party members due to coronavirus safety protocols.

The event will be streamed live for members of the party and the general public to watch.

Government to establish model SHSs in Zongo communities – Bawumia

Published

The government is to establish Model Senior High Schools (SHSs) in all Zongo communities across the country, the Vice President Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia announced on Friday.

He emphasized quality education was key to a successful life, hence it was imperative to make SHS education easily accessible to Muslims in the country.

Dr. Bawumia said very soon Zongo communities would realise the fruits of the Zongo Development Fund and witness remarkable improvement in their socio-economic lives.

The Vice President gave the announcement when he addressed the chiefs and people of Wamfie in the Dormaa East and Nkrankwanta in the Dormaa West Districts at separate durbars, as part of his two-day working visit to the Bono Region.

Alhaji Dr. Bawumia noted though the previous National Democratic Congress (NDC) government nearly collapsed it, the national economy had been resuscitated due to the implementation of sound and pragmatic economic policies by the President Akufo-Addo’s government.

He said the government had successfully repaid cash deposits of 85,000 out of the 88,000 customers of the defunct ‘DKM’ microfinance company whose monies were locked up.

Alhaji Dr. Bawumia promised all customers whose monies were locked up would receive their cash deposits, and advised them to exercise patience and cooperate with the official liquidator.

Barimah Dei Kusi Gyabaah, the chief of Amasu in the Dormaa Central Municipality and Ankobeahene of Dormaa Traditional Area, appealed for the reshaping of the Nkrankwanta town roads.

He appealed to the government to stock the Nkrankwanta Polyclinic with medical devices and also provide a tertiary institution to enhance the growth and development of education in the area.

‘I’m not like those who cut sods without funding’ -Akufo-Addo

Published

on

 

 

 

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says he secured funding for every project undertaken under his administration since assuming office.

President Akufo-Addo made this known at Enchi during day 2 of his 3-day tour of the Western North Region, where he cut the sod for the construction of the 71.25-kilometre Enchi to Elubo road, which will cost $116.2 million.

“When I came here a year ago, I assured the Chiefs and people that I will work hard to ensure that the Enchi to Elubo road commences. There were a number of processes, like the contractor and funding sources, that had to be completed before today’s ceremony could take place. All those processes have been successfully completed”

“I am not like some people who rush to cut sods without securing the requisite funding for the projects. I will never do that. When I cut the sod, it means all the processes have been completed and the money for the project is available. I am not out to deceive anyone,” he said.

Touching on the creation of the Western North Region, the President told the gathering that the equitable distribution of development and resources was one of the reasons that necessitated the creation of the region.

He further indicated that the Government had taken the decision to situate offices of the Departments and Agencies in all parts of the region.

He said construction is ongoing for the Regional Education Directorate which will be in Bibiani, as well as the Regional Agriculture Directorate in Juaboso, the Regional Feeder Roads in Aowin, and the Regional Highways Department in Sefwi Wiawso, the capital of the Region.

President Akufo-Addo, therefore, appealed to the people of Aowin to vote massively for him and the NPP’s parliamentary candidate in order to “do more.”
