As the country gears up towards the 2016 elections, the 2012 Presidential Candidate of the Progressive People’s Party, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, has advised Ghanaians to elect people who can deliver on the promises.
According to Dr. Nduom, “who you vote for can either have a positive or negative consequence” so Ghanaians need to critically examine the ability of those who want to lead the country to deliver on their promises before deciding to vote for them.
He made these comments on his official Facebook Fan Page “Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom”
“I believe in accountability and holding our leaders to their promises and insisting that they deliver positive results to the people. President Mahama said during the State of the Nation address in January 2013 in Parliament that, ‘…I shall work to ensure that every household in this country will soon enjoy uninterrupted water and power supply’. At the IEA Presidential Debate in Tamale in 2012, he promised that load shedding would be a thing of the past. The President’s promises include solving the unemployment crisis, improving education and related infrastructure and stemming down corruption. Mr. Mahama’s Administration promised to build 50 new community schools by September 1, 2015. President Mahama has not delivered on these promises,” he lamented.
Although the National Committee of the PPP has confirmed to hold its 2015 National Convention on Saturday 31st October, 2015 at Takoradi in the Western Region, Dr. Nduom hinted that the 2016 campaign of the PPP, which has already started, will be based on the successful track record of the leadership of the party and the strength of the policies that they propose to implement- stewardship, education, healthcare and jobs.
“No insults, no mud throwing…just the fact,” he concluded.
