According to him, although Ghana is endowed with enormous human and natural resources, the country is virtually on its knees begging for huge loans because of lack of competent leaders like him to harness the nation’s resources for the benefit of the citizenry.
The NPP flag bearer has been under intense criticism in the last couple of weeks after announcing some key policies he intends to pursue if given the nod in the upcoming elections to lead the country.
Among the key policy proposals are “one village, one dam,” “one district, one factory,” and the restoration of trainee teachers and nurses allowances.
Addressing NPP supporters in the Nadowli-Kaleo constituency of the Upper West Region, Nana Akufo-Addo challenged his critics who are skeptical about his ability to implement the said promises to give him the opportunity.
“You have heard about our policies to transform the living conditions of our people, I am still committed to those policies such as reviving the National Health Insurance, ensuring a robust agric sector, establishing one factory in ever district of this country to address our development needs,” Nana Akufo-Addo reiterated.
He added “there are a lot of competent people in the NPP and there is no need lying to the presidency if we don’t have the expertise to transform this country,” and decried the rate of youth unemployment in the country which he said is becoming a major security threat.
