Former Deputy Minister for Communication under the Mahama administration, Felix Kwakye Ofosu says the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) infrastructure projects are simply unmatchable.
Kwakye Ofosu says the NDC did more in terms of infrastructure than the current NPP government.
He added that there is no logical argument that can end in a conclusion that this NPP government has performed better than the NDC.
“The NDC put up infrastructure that served both the rich and the poor. As a government, we demonstrated the need to do things that are significant. There is not a single sector that this government has performed better than the NDC. Not even one. I don’t know who advised Dr. Bawumia to engage himself in that discussion. We [NDC] have 3 universities, President Akufo-Addo has none. Meanwhile, he stands on platforms and make bold claims that he has performed better than the NDC NDC infrastructure projects are simply unmatchable,” he said on Joy FM’s Newsfile.
His comments come after Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia in a Town Hall meeting said the NPP has done massively well than the NDC in the area of infrastructure.
He said the NDC blew their own horns of doing more in terms of infrastructure but records and facts shows President Akufo-Addo’s infrastructure records are superior.
That did not go down well with the NDC who have disagreed with the assertion.
Former President John Mahama after the claims has thrown a challenge to President Akufo-Addo to debate him on the grounds of infrastructure.
The NPP has however shot down the challenge and says the party is focused on governance rather than debating him.
They says Akufo-Addo is delivering on the matters that touch on the lives of Ghanaians and has no time to debate John Mahama.
The Deputy Campaign Manager for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Mustapha Abdul-Hamid also says the John Mahama has no moral right to throw a challenge for a debate given some comments he made about such debates in the past.
Mr. Abdul-Hamid believes Ghanaians are already “awarding their marks”, on the achievements of the NPP in comparison with that of the NDC hence any debate to set the record straight in a “theoretical debate” will make no significant change.
Meanwhile, the NPP will today launch their manifesto at the University of Cape Coast.
