The Vice President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has scorned the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for not having a lot to show for its 8 years in office despite championing the campaign of doing so well in infrastructure development.
According to Dr Bawumia, the Mahama-led government, during its term in office, had only two factories constructed.
He made this revelation during an interview on Cape Coast-based Eagle FM on Sunday, November 1 2020.
Dr Bawumia stated that a critical look at the One-District One-Factory policy which was introduced by the NPP government would show that about 76% of the work has been executed, with more being introduced.

He argued that never did his administration ever make any promise to complete all the promises the then opposition NPP outlined in their 2016 manifesto citing that the Akufo-Addo led government has not lied to electorates.
“We never said we will do it all by 2020, we said we will initiate a program called the One district, One factory, and we are still on it, and Ghanaians are happy about our many promises,” said.
“We are positive that within 2-3 years, we would have exhausted all our manifesto promises but the NDC can only boast of two factories within their 8 years, and for the NPP, it only took us one term to provide 76% of our 2016 manifesto promise.”
Speaking to electorates in Cape Coast, the astute economist implored electorates to vote for the NPP come December 7, 2020, so the party can continue the implementation of developmental policies it had introduced in 2016.
“Our biggest initiative is the Free SHS policy. We were told that it’s impossible, but we responded by saying funds will be generated when we come to fix the economy.
“We might not see full impact now, but in another 10 to 15 years, Ghana will be a very different place, because we will have a very educated workforce.”
