‘PPP Will Adopt All-Inclusive Gov’t Policy
The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has stated that it would adopt all inclusive government approach to ruling the country should Ghanaians give it the mandate come 2016.
National Youth leader of the party, Mr. Divine Nkrumah, who stated this in an interview with the Ghana News Agency (GNA) in Bolgatanga at the weekend indicated that unlike other political parties that would put foot soldiers who had not got the necessary competency and capacity to deliver, the PPP would not do so should Ghanaians give it mandate come 2016.
Mr. Nkrumah attributed most of the failures in many sectors of the economy to leadership of governments putting their favourites who lacked the requisite knowledge and competency to deliver.
“For us the PPP irrespective of one’s political, religious, ethnical, social, economic backgrounds once you have the necessary competency and can deliver, we will not hesitate to involve you in governance to tap your rich knowledge and experiences to help accelerated the development of the nation,” the national youth leader stressed.
He pointed out that there were a lot of Ghanaians who have much knowledge and the technical knowhow to help fix regional and national problems but just because of not being affiliated to political party in power such people are ignored which goes to affect the development of the entire nation’s development.
He cited the 2012 presidential candidate of the party, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, as one of the classic example who had much experiences and technical knowhow to tackle national problems and yet had been ignored by the government in power.
He impressed upon governments in power to shun such unhealthy practices since it did not augur well for national development and further proposed to government not to hesitate to engage good Ghanaian consultants and said currently the Indian Government and other countries had engaged Dr. Nduom to render certain essential services towards development of their nations for them.
He said when the PPP annexed power in the next election one of its topmost priorities would be to create more jobs by expanding sectors such as education, health, agriculture and roads to absorb more unemployed Ghanaians.
The national youth leader said the party also had good intentions of revamping many defunct factories in the country including the meat factory at Zuarungu and Pwalugu Tomato in the Upper East Region to create more jobs.
The party, he noted, also had plans in place to help bridge the gap between the urban and rural centres to help decongest the urban centres.
