Minister for Inner City and Zongo Development, Mustapha Abdul-Hamid has confessed that it’s easier to sell the New Patriotic Party(NPP) in 2020 than it was in 2016.
According to him, in 2016, Akufo-Addo was now struggling to be President so people would have doubted his capabilities.
But with the work the NPP government led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in this short period, everyone in Ghana is aware of what the NPP government can do to help make the country better and developed.
He said “It is easier to sell Akufo-Addo in 2020 than in 2016. This is because, in 2016, Akufo-Addo was struggling to become President. So people were doubting his capabilities. They were saying can he do the work, should we vote for him, some even said the devil you know is better than the angel you don’t know. But now, everybody knows how Walewale market looks like or Gambaga market looks like and everybody can be able to tell which of the markets have been beneficial”.
The Minister added “the Kind of work we have done, you heard President Kufour himself during the manifesto launch saying that President Akufo-Addo…So now everybody has seen the kind of work we have done. As President Kufour said we have virtually done magic from the little we inherited from NDC”.
He indicated that theNPP can be trusted because even though they inherited less they have done greatly with the resources available.
“They had virtually depleted the country’ resources and that’s why they said we cannot do free SHS. But with the ingenuity of the Vice President and the Finance Minister, we have been able to do more.”
