Mr Kofi Akpaloo, the Founder and Leader of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), has lauded the government’s several interventions which has seen the economy booming after inheriting a poor and hopeless economic growth from successive regimes.
“The Nana Akufo-Addo-led administration has put in place several interventions and was doing his best to salvage the economy, looking at his good work and dedication, determination and commitment to deliver on his promises to the citizenry,” he stressed.
Mr Akpaloo rallied the rank and file of his party supporters, well wishers and faithful to remain hopeful as it puts in place well thought-out policies, programmes and interventions to attract and retain more votes in the 2020 polls.
“LPG is the most favourite to win the 2020 polls but I cautioned that a vote for former President John Dramani Mahama, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential candidate for the 2020 elections will be dangerous and suicidal.
“It will be disaster should Ghanaians vote for the former president and his government back into power, he has nothing new to offer us since he is an old wine in a new bottle,” Mr Akpaloo riposted.
Touching on the ‘indigenous African sacred herb’, he observed that it remained key to resuscitating the nation’s wobbling economic quagmire and financial abyss, used for making car dashboards, door handles, clothes, and treatment of cancer, convulsion, epilepsy among others.
“Regardless of the psychological, mental, legal and health implications of its use, the party believes the socio-economic value and health benefits of the plant are enormous to ignore its legalisation because it will raise a substantial amount of revenue, normalise trade imbalances, create employment, wealth and put a lot of money into the pockets of individual farmers.
“The cultivation of the herb is profitable than cocoa, gold and other natural resources, I rally support for its legalisation since the country stands to gain more from international trade,” Mr Akpaloo intimated. –GNA
