The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, John Boadu, has stated that the governing NPP is the best political group to move Ghana forward.
He said this in a statement following the party’s selection of the number one position on the ballot paper for the December elections.
Listing about 25 achievements of the party in government, the NPP chief scribe noted that the NPP is “the number one political party in Ghana to implement the biggest educational intervention in the country’s post-independence history, the Free SHS policy, which is helping to secure the future of some 1.5 million Ghanaian youth.”
He added that the NPP is the number political party that has been able to provide free water and free electricity to Ghanaians for more than six months; implemented the biggest health intervention programme in the country’s post-independence history, the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS) and has consistently saved the Scheme from collapse; implemented the biggest intervention in the nation’s agriculture sector, Planting for Food and Jobs as well as constructed or facilitated the construction of over 79 factories under the famous 1D1F initiative.
The NPP, he continued, is the first political party that has ensured a no ‘dumsor Republic’ throughout its tenure of office; successfully commenced the construction of the single largest infrastructure project in Northern Ghana since independence, the Pwalugu Irrigation Project; successfully ensured the passage of the Right to Information Act after 21 years since it was introduced and having gone through six Parliaments under the 4th Republic.
He again said the NPP government has established the Office of the Special Prosecutor and given the most resources to all the anti-graft agencies, including the Auditor General and EOCO, in order to help them fight corruption of all kinds.
Moreover, the NPP implemented the biggest intervention in the nation’s transport sector, the Metro Mass Transit System, and has also revamped the railway sector; implemented the most robust and transformational digitization initiatives in the country’s post-independence history among others.
Mr Boadu stated that the selection of the number one position on the ballot paper for election “has been affirmed by the Almighty God”.
The party says its position further affirms it as the number one political party in Ghana and the pacesetter of unprecedented records in government.
“This is certainly no mean a coincidence because the party has, time without number, shown the way as the model of good governance, competent leadership and socioeconomic transformation of the fortunes of this country,” he said.
He added: “It is also noteworthy that in the first balloting exercise to determine the order of appearance of the political parties for the main balloting, the NPP picked number four (4), which again is consistent with the party’s 4More4Nana mantra in order to place Ghana number one (1) on the world stage, which number was eventually confirmed in the final balloting.”
