The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has stated that the New Patriotic Party's (NPP) 4 years in power under the Akufo-Addo administration is better than the National Democratic Congress' (NDC) 24 years in government.
Addressing a durbar at Kwame Danso in the Sene West constituency on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, the Vice President stated that the NDC spent more time in government but they can't match NPP's 4 years under Akufo-Addo.
Bawumia says all Ghanaians can clearly see the performance of the NPP in these 4 years which the NDC can never match even though they have spent more years in government.
He intimated that the NPP had outperformed the NDC greatly and deserved another term.
Bawumia also stated that the Free Senior High School programme would have been non-existent if the National Democratic Congress won power in 2016.
He said the NDC has no capacity to deliver the NPP’s Free SHS programme as they were unable to pay allowances of teacher trainees and Arabic instructors during its tenure.
That was a clear indication they couldn’t provide the Free SHS which numerous Ghanaians benefit from today, he suggested.
The Vice President also called on the constituents to vote for the NPP in the upcoming elections.
The Vice President is on a two-day tour of the Bono East Region and is expected to meet with NPP parliamentary candidates, chiefs and community leaders as the New Patriotic Party seeks to win the majority of parliamentary seats in the region.
