Former Vice-President Kwesi Amissah-Arthur has criticized the New Patriotic Party administration for its management of the economy.
He says the NPP government could have done much better in one year and that is what as Ghanaians we are all hoping for in the coming years for them to be able to resolve the problems.
The former Vice President made the statement in Ho on Christmas Day, 25th December, 2017 when he spoke to the media after donations to children on admission at the Ho Regional and Municipal hospitals with his wife, Matilda Amissah-Arthur.
Mr Amissah-Arthur said that most of the programmes of the immediate past National Democratic Congress government that have been adopted and implemented by the NPP government are without the full conceptualization and appreciation of the cost involved.
Mr Amissah-Arthur gave as example, the free SHS which he said is a problem and require more expert consultations to better define goals and outcomes.
The couple was accompanied by the NDC MP for the Area, Benjamin Kpodo and went round the various wards to interact with patients on admission and to wish them well.
They presented assorted gifts such as fruits, drinks, biscuits, cooking oil and bags of rice to the children’s ward and staff of the hospital.
