The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has accused the Akufo-Addo government of failing to deliver promises it made on the economy.
According to the party, despite making 45 promises of strengthening the economy and improving the lives of Ghanaians, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has achieved only 12, representing 27% of what it promised.
Former Deputy Education Minister, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa who led the presentation of the NDC’s tracking of the government’s promises at a news briefing in Accra said on the Economy, 45 promises were made and only 12 have been delivered.
He said they promised to grow the economy and create wealth and prosperity for the vast majority of Ghanaians through private sector empowerment which they failed to do.
Mr Okudzeto Ablakwa said other promises such as reducing the cost of doing business had not been fulfilled.
According to him government has only worsened the situation of businesses and caused many to collapse.
While the NDC insists that its economic performance, while it was in power, remains superior, the NPP insists that it has been a better manager of the economy.
