The Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has said that the opposition NDC have misplaced priorities.
Kweku Baako has asked the largest opposition party in the country to get their priorities right after they claim the ruling government had fulfilled only 14 per cent of its campaign promises.
14% score charitable
NDC had scored the Akufo-Addo-led administration 14 per cent on the fulfilment of its 2016 campaign promises.
According to them, only 86 out of the 631 campaign promises made by the government have been delivered.
Member of Parliament for North Tongu Constituency in the Volta Region, Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says they were even charitable and that the actual figure is 13.6%.
“We observed that only 86 promises have been delivered out of the 631 and if you do the arithmetic and divide the 86 by the 631, what you will get is 13.6% and so we have been generous to gift them 14%; we added 0.4% to it by rounding the figure up,” he indicated.
Kweku Baako in a discussion on Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo’, said the figures put out by the NDC were padded and deliberate; adding if this is the opposition party’s message five months to an election; they should ‘watch out’.
“What is your target or what did you want to achieve? If this is your message 5 months to an election, watch out . . . what was your goal, what was your target for that exposure? You are a political party, you must have a strategy especially with 5 months to an election…” he stated.
Fulfilling All Promises Mission Impossible
Kweku Baako also noted that it is impossible for any political party to fulfil all of its electoral promises. He has asked the NDC to do an introspection and ask themselves if they were able to achieve all of its promises.
“No political party has been able to fulfill all promises; there’s none. The NDC should ask themselves if they were able to achieve all their promises in their manifesto? he rhetorically asked.
