Professor Joshua Alabi, the 2020 Campaign Manager for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), claims that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has abandoned Ghanaians despite several promises to work in the people’s interest.
According him, the NPP government is more interested in retaining in power for another eight years, regardless of the hardships Ghanaians face.
The former Vice-Chancellor for the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) in an interview on Power 97.9 FM indicated that throughout the NPP’s five years in office, the Akufo-Addo administration has shown without a reasonable doubt that it is incapable of fixing Ghanaians’ problems and therefore he is focused on ticking the right boxes to return the NDC to power in 2024 because Ghanaians are sick and tired of the NPP management.
He further stated that, the earlier John Mahama administration, which had numerous challenges, performed better than the current NPP government.
“NPP is too obsessed with ‘breaking the 8’ rather than dealing with the challenges facing Ghanaians, they have not done anything meaningful to be given the mandate again… When Ghanaians complain, they say “Shut up, we are breaking the 8; when we talk about how bad the E-levy is, they say “Shut up, we are breaking the 8”.
“For now that [bringing the NDC back to power] is my focus,” he stated as he rallied Ghanaians to support the party to come to power in the next elections.
