“The party has not been happy with the level of ineptitude with impunity displayed by parastatals in recent times. Evidence of this ineptitude on the part of government officials is the current “dumsor, dumsor” we are experiencing all over the country,” the statement pointed out.
According to the PPP, it is seeking for power to use government resources to solve the little problems confronting the nation which the Mahama-led administration has failed to do.
“The PPP being the second biggest opposition, wishes to overtake the NPP and NDC and become the problem-solving government that will help Ghanaians live the life they deserve,” the statement affirmed.
