The outspoken Vice President of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has once again taken a dig at the National Democratic Congress as he alleges his party’s first term of office is better than the 24-years regime of the NDC.
According to him, incumbent Akufo-Addo led government has done Ghanaians better and positioned Ghanaians for prosperity than the entire 24 years the NDC has had power.
Tending to a durbar at Kwame Danso in the Sene West supporters on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, the Vice President expressed that the NPP’s treatment of the COVID-19 pandemic and the social mediations that had been implemented point with the way that they are better administrators of the country.

“You all can bear witness that the NPP’s performance in these four years is better than the 24 years the NDC has been in power. Akufo-Addo placed measures to lessen the impact of the COVID-19 in Ghana by providing free water and electricity to citizens. This has never happened before in Ghana. I, therefore, urge you all to vote for the Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP parliamentary candidate.”
Moreover, Mahamudu Bawumia said his party’s lead program, The Free Senior High School (SHS) initiative wouldn’t have come to pass if the National Democratic Congress (NDC) had won in the 2016 general elections.
According to Bawumia, the NDC’s inability to deliver Free SHS is the reason why they cannot maintain it even if they win.
Therefore, Ghanaians must not vote for the opposition party.

“President Akufo-Addo’s promise to make Senior High School Education in Ghana free was met with a lot of scepticism from the National Democratic Congress. In 2016, the NDC said we couldn’t deliver the Free Senior High School Programme. They said we couldn’t do it.
“The NDC was unable to pay Arabic Instructor’s allowances and teacher trainee’s allowances which were GHS70 million. If they couldn’t pay for those, how then could they have paid for the Free SHS which cost GHS2.2 billion? If the NDC were still in power, we wouldn’t have the free SHS programme,” Dr Mahamudu Bawumia said.
The Vice President who is currently on a two-day tour in the Bono Region is expected to meet chiefs and people of selected communities to propagate the good news according to the NPP’s agenda of “#4More4Nana.”
