Parties urge Nana Addo to prioritize tackling economic challenges

Some political parties are urging Ghana’s new President, Nana Akufo-Addo, to put together a special team that will salvage the country’s economic situation within his first 100 days in office.

They have also said the government must commit to the various promises they made to Ghanaians during the campaign period.

The Director of Communications for the convention People’s Party (CPP), Abdul Rauf Kadiri, told Citi News the NPP needs to devise creative steps to help address unemployment.

“We expect that the New Patriotic Party will put together the team that has the requisite mindset and skills to be able to deliver our country on a new platform for development. The NPP made a number of promises, some of which were deemed ambitious; but we think that everything that the NPP uttered is something that can be realized on condition that they are committed to it.”

“We also look forward to seeing the NPP bring out practical steps, clear frameworks that will ensure the realization of these promises. We would also expect that within the shortest possible time, the NPP comes up with very creative ideas that will lead to job creation for the youth of the country.”

The General Secretary of the National Democratic Party (NDP), Mohammed Frimpong, also called on the government deal with corruption drastically.

He said the party expects Akufo-Addo to quickly finalize all transitional arrangements and start work on improving the lives of Ghanaians.

“The new administration needs to consolidate all the transitional arrangements to make sure that whatever has come into the hands of the President by way of transition, is confirmed or proven to be just as they should be. We would expect the new administration to ensure that nothing distracts his attention from hitting the ground running.”
