Top 5 achievements of Nana Akufo-Addo

Top 5 achievements of Nana Akufo-Addo: Ghanaians are going to the polls on December 7, 2020, to elect a new government. Major political parties in the country are gearing up despite the insurgence of the COVID-19 pandemic to face-off in the December presidential and parliamentary polls.

President Akufo-Addo who is the leader of the party in government, the New Patriotic Party has been acclaimed by the party’s National Executive Council to serve as the presidential candidate for the party in the upcoming elections.

President Akufo-Addo won power against the former President John Mahama in the December 2016 elections when the former won with close to a million votes margin coupled with the majority seats in parliament.

Prior to the December 2016 elections, the New Patriotic Party led by Nana Akufo-Addo with his Vice Dr. Bawumia made several manifesto promises based on which Ghanaians voted massively for them to win the elections.

Upon careful research on those promises made, Accra Mail has found the following Top 5 achievements to give Nana Addo and NPP one-touch victory in the upcoming 2020 elections.

 

1. Implementation of the Free Senior High School Education Policy:

On page 107 of the 2016 Manifesto of the NNP, the party promised that: “The NPP will redefine basic education to include Senior High School (SHS), covering vocational, agricultural and technical schools, and make it available for free on a universal basis to all Ghanaians”.

his promise being so dear to the President got funding and launched in September 2017. It started with first year students and currently, all students in Ghana’s public Secondary schools are benefitting from this laudable educational policy. More testimonies have been received from parents and students regarding how the Free SHS policy has had a life-changing impact on them.

This fulfilled promise is in no doubt a strong point to win more votes for Nana Akufo-Addo and NPP in the coming elections.

 

2. One District One Factory (1D1F) Initiative

The One District One Factory initiative has been one of the most discussed promised policy of the NPP government in the media among political divides. The party in its 2016 manifesto on page 31 promised to “collaborate with the private sector, to implement the “One District, One Factory” Initiative. This District Industrialization Programme will ensure an even, spatial spread of industries”.

The party in assuming power in January 2017 created a special office dedicated to the take-off of this buoyant initiative in the country. Currently, several of these factories have been completed with some still at the various stages of completion.

In searching for evidence of the successful implementation of this promise, we found a couple of them completed and currently manufacturing products that are being sold in the Ghanaian market

One of these factories is the Ekumfi Pineapple Factory, which is currently producing pineapple juice for the local and the global markets.

 

 

See Photos of some the 1D1F factories completed below:


 

The Trade Minister, Mr. Alan Kyeremanteng in a media briefing confirmed that 181 factories under the 1D1F initiative are under the various stages of completion.

With the completion of these factories, Ghana will gain economically, and we believe that the successful implementation of this initiative promised by the government which is offering jobs and livelihoods to thousands of Ghanaians is a strong factor to win massive votes for the NPP government in the 2020 elections.

 

3. Zongo Development Fund policy

The party in its 2016 manifesto on page 66-67 promised to introduce Zongo Development fund to help develop the Zongo communities in the country.

“The NPP Zongo policy is aimed at developing these communities in order to unleash their potentials to become centres of opportunity. In this direction, we will establish the Zongo Development Fund (ZDF) to invest in:

a. education and training within the Zongos
b. improved infrastructure in the Zongos targeting health and sanitation
c. supporting local businesses and centres of culture and arts, and
d. community policing and security” (p. 67 of NPP 2016 Manifest).

Upon assumption of power, President Nana Akufo-Addo created the Ministry of Inner City and Zongo Development to ensure the successful implementation of this policy.

After searching through the implementation status of this promise we found out that several projects have been completed under this policy with several others still ongoing.

Checkout out pictures of some of the projects being executed by the Ministry: 

These projects are having positive impact on the dwellers of the Zongo communities in the country and we believe that families and all the people living in these communities will be influenced by these initiatives when casting their votes in the upcoming 2020 elections.

 

4. Restoration of Trainee Teachers and Nurses Allowance

The allowances paid to teachers and nurses studying in the various Colleges of education and health was introduced in the 1960s by Ghana’s first President Dr. Kwame Nkrumah with the main objective of motivating students to undergo such voluntary profession to serve mother Ghana. However, in 2014, the then NDC government scrapped the policy and replaced it with Student Loan policy. The allowance benefits thousands of trainee teachers and nurses across the country.

NPP in the 2016 campaign saw the need to reintroduce the allowance policy if Ghanaians vote them into power. Their promise to reintroduce this stipend policy received several backlashes from the then incumbent party NDC and other Civil Society Organizations in the country but the then candidate Nana Addo stood by his promise as stated on page 118 of their manisfesto.

 

Indeed the trainee allowance was restored as promised in the first year of his reign. This was celebrated by thousands of trainee nurses and teachers across the country.

It is obvious that these trainee nurses and teachers will vote for the NPP government to protect the continuous payment of their allowance.

 

5. Fulfillment of One Constituency One Ambulance promise

On page 119 under the National Health Improvement plan of the party’s 2016 manifesto, the party promised to strengthen the National Ambulance Service and ensure collaboration with NADMO.

This promise was awaken by the then abhorring situation of the national ambulance when there were only 50 ambulances serving Ghanaians nationwide. The president after hearing the situation charged the Minister in charge of the Special Development Initiative to immediately procure 300 ambulances to be distributed to all the 275 constituencies nationwide. This quick response from the President won him many praises from Ghanaians.

This massive achievement in the country’s health system development by the government will definitely receive some appreciations in terms of votes from Ghanaians in the upcoming elections.

I believe in the promises of an ejaculating man than Akufo-Addo – Manasseh Azure

I believe in the promises of an ejaculating man than Akufo-Addo: Freelance Journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni has said that he will rather believe in promises made by a man during his ejaculation than believe in Akufo-Addo.

According to him, he invested his trust in the Akufo-Addo brand during the 2016 electioneering campaign because he believed that the NPP was a better alternative to transform the fortunes of Ghana for the better.

However, he now has a diverse opinion about the Akufo-Addo led administration ever since they took over the governance of the country.

The Journalist who made this known in a post on his Facebook page said the straw that broke the camel’s back and erased the little trust he had in the Akufo-Addo administration is the treated meted out to Dumelevo.

He said “Whenever Akufo-Addo was speaking in 2016, come and see me — gidigidi, quoting and posting his words with trust and hope. Now, I trust the promises a man makes to his wife when “his body is coming” more than the president’s words. His action against Daniel Yaw Domelevo eroded the vestige of trust I still had in him. Unfortunately, I don’t trust his main opponent’s promises too. But I’ll vote on December 7 if I have life”.

The New Patriotic Party today August 22, 2020 at an event held in the Central Region launched its manifesto which to the party intends to consolidate the gains made so far since they took over power from the NDC.

The Manifesto according to the political party is its social contract with the people of Ghana and they will follow suit to ensure that Ghana is Transformed.

Whenever Akufo-Addo was speaking in 2016, come and see me — gidigidi, quoting and posting his words with trust and hope….

Keep your receipts because I’ll audit COVID-19 Funds – Mahama to Akufo-Addo

Keep your receipts because I’ll audit COVID-19 Funds – Mahama

Keep your receipts because I’ll audit COVID-19 Funds – Mahama to Akufo-Addo

Mr. John Dramani Mahama has indicated he will audit the COVID-19 fund that has been created to finance activities relating to the fight against the pandemic.

He cautioned all persons who use the funds to keep their receipts because “the day of accountability will come”.

The government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo created the COVID-19 Trust Fund to solicit funds from the general public to help fight the pandemic.

The Fund, according to President Akufo-Addo has accrued GH₵8,750,000.

“I’m very grateful to individuals and institutions who have responded to my appeal for donations to be made into the COVID-19 National Trust Fund. A total amount of some 8,750,000 cedis which includes 600,000USD has been received.

“I’m happy that so many appointees of my government have also followed my example by donating their salaries to the fund,” President Akufo-Addo said.

But in a Facebook Live presentation on Thursday April 23, Mr Mahama called on Ghanaians to demand accountability in the disbursement of the Funds.

“I don’t think I need to become President before we demand accountability. All those spending the COVID-19 money should be keeping the receipts because the day of accountability is fast approaching,” he said.

He added: “Let us all join hands in demanding accountability and transparency from the government in the management of the COVID-19 funds, after all these are public funds contributed by tax payers.

“I am passionately appealing to the government to ensure a timely release of these funds to the institutions, health and non-heath, so that they can discharge their duties appropriately and according to plan.”

Read FULL JUDGEMENT of the 2020 election petition

The Supreme Court, by a unanimous decision, has affirmed the victory of President Akufo-Addo in the 2020 presidential election.

“The petitioner has not produced any evidence to rebut the presumptions created by the publication of CI 135 for which his action has failed. We have, therefore, no reason to order for a rerun … we accordingly dismiss the petition as having no merit,” Chief Justice Anin-Yeboah ruled.

With this unanimous, seven-member decision, the Supreme Court dismissed the petition.

The court determined that the petitioner had based his case on an error made by the chair of the Electoral Commission during the declaration of the election result on 9 December 2020, but that the error could not void the will of the people in electing a president.

The Supreme Court also held that the error made by the EC in using total votes cast as the basis for reckoning the total valid votes during the declaration was corrected, and that the correction was made in accordance with the law.
