A 2016 presidential aspirant of the Convention Peoples Party (CPP), Joseph Agyapong has observed that Ghanaians are waiting for a CPP government again for the resurrection of the nation’s development.
He said “Ghanaians want to see a CPP united as a party and fighting for their wellbeing.”
Mr Agyapong was however not happy about the current situation of the party, saying “the party has fallen in standard and is now considered as one of the smaller political parties in Ghana.
The astute politician, who is also the President of Providence Telecommunication Company, based in Canada, was speaking at a press conference on the NPP government’s one year in office.
The statement focused on key sectors namely education, economy, corruption, road networks and national database.
“Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and Dr Hilla Limann left a vibrant and strong political organisation for this generation to continue with their good legacies, but what are we doing as a political party with the great ideology of national development.
“Today, few people within the CPP have sold our ideology, pride and national development, if Nkrumah had sold the CPP to the British, could we have obtained the independence and the peace we have today in Ghana?
“Before any economy can yield long term results, it needs proper systems, strong institutions, proper control of corruption and this can never be done until right leaders are in place.
Mr Agyapong, who is also the President of Providence Telecommunication Company, based in Canada, pointed out that the NPP administration led by President Nana Akufo-Addo had attained few successes such as strong willingness to control illegal mining (galamsey), controlling inflation and foreign exchange rate.
“Also maintaining and balancing our energy sector, although we still have some issues to resolve, but they have done what they have to do within a year to make our energy need stable.
“I am not impressed with the way the government has managed and handled the economy in the past year but has not done much to improve the economic status of the country and more needs to be done.
“Free education is good and amazing policy, I agree and support it, not the way this administration has implemented it.
“I have no doubt that this current administration has men with high qualifications and experience in all areas of nation building, but most of the policies introduced have caused other sectors to be stagnant. -GNA
