Assin Central MP Kennedy Agyapong strongly believes that the current administration made errors that contributed to the economic hardship Ghanaians are currently going through.
The repercussions of COVID-19 and the Russia-Ukraine crisis, which are wrecking economies all across the world, were not entirely discounted by him. He further suggested that if elections were held today, it’s likely the NPP would lose.
“I always say that if we had a vote today in the entire world, 80% of the sitting governments would lose because the population cannot take the misery everywhere, making every government unpopular,” he stated.
Also, the unorthodox politician thinks that a number of policies and programs were carried out wrongly, which also added to the problems in the country.
“I’ll also add that, in hindsight, there are some things we did wrong that, in my opinion, would have prevented the current state of the economy.“
In contrast to the three-year program that ended and left graduates who were enrolled jobless once more, he angrily attacked the money wasted on NABCO, arguing that it might have instead been utilized to build businesses and hire young people.
About 100,000 youngsters were engaged by NABCO at GHC 700 per month, or GHC 700 million. For these young men, we could have created enterprises with 700 million. Although there won’t be 100,000 people employed, “young men and women could find employment because of the sustainability,” he claimed.
He said that despite the NPP’s errors, it is important to “fight propaganda by the NDC because the same thing happened with President Kufour when the first six to seven years he did marvellously well and the world crude oil prices went up, transportation, food, Ghanaians could not forgive the NPP.”
