Greater Accra Regional Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joseph Ade Coker has expressed reservations about president Akufo-Addo’s promise to the generality of the Ghanaian people to have hope in the 2019 budget which is likely to be read in parliament next week.
According to him, the president rode on the back of such promises to power but has woefully failed to deliver on such promises and thereby exacerbating the already precarious plight of the suffering masses.
“As we speak right now, it is extremely difficult for some people in Ghana to even afford just one meal a day. That is how bad the situation is now. The president is telling us to have hope in the 2019 budget. What hope is he talking about? Is it not the same hope they promised in 2016? he quizzed.
Mr. Ade Coker said the ruling New Patriotic Party and the president have failed to deliver on key campaign promises such as the one district one factory, and one Million dollars per constituency among others and therefore cannot be taken seriously.
He said it was evident that the opposition NDC was coming back to political power in 2021.
