Bawumia Asserts NPP’s Economic Turnaround Amid Predecessor’s Challenges

by Oluwatosin Racheal Alabi

Ghana’s Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, spotlighted the New Patriotic Party (NPP)’s economic revival efforts following the challenges inherited from the prior National Democratic Congress administration.

“We encountered an economy riddled with hurdles and soaring unemployment,” Bawumia stated, reflecting on the situation in January 2017. The original narrative was detailed in a report by Ghana Web.

Bawumia, in the NPP’s 2020 Election Manifesto, emphasized the economic rebound under President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s leadership. “We’ve largely reversed the damage, revitalizing a distressed private sector,” he affirmed.

Despite COVID-19’s setbacks, the NPP maintained its dedication to improving Ghanaians’ lives, he noted. The party prioritizes pro-poor policies, striving for equality and nationwide development.

“We’re not solely focusing on infrastructure and groundbreaking projects; we’re nurturing a nation,” Bawumia declared.

He recollected the NPP’s unwavering commitment to its social contract, underscored by educational reforms, agricultural transformation, and a digital economy push. “Continuity is vital for a promising future,” he insisted.

Reflecting on the 2016 NPP Manifesto, Bawumia conveyed pride in fulfilling most pledges. “Our people-centric approach has catalyzed significant improvements under President Akufo-Addo’s guidance,” he said.

NPP National Chairman, Freddie Blay, reiterated this success, contrasting it with the previous regime’s “disarray and misgovernance.” He praised Ghana’s resurgence under Akufo-Addo, emphasizing economic prosperity and crucial institutional reforms.

“We’ve achieved 80% of our previous electoral promises, manifest in educational accessibility, industrialization initiatives, and more,” Blay pointed out.

Regarding infrastructure, Blay cited the transformative IPEP and the “Planting for Food and Jobs” programs as economy game-changers.

Navigating through the pandemic, Blay commended Akufo-Addo’s adept leadership. “Our journey towards December’s elections demands stability and competence to preserve our collective progress and envision a transformed Ghana,” he concluded.
