Yapei Kusawgu legislator and former deputy Minister for energy John Jinapor has vowed to quit politics if the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) is able to fulfil its campaign promise of giving each of the 275 constituencies some 1 million dollars each.
‘’I will quit politics if the NPP is able to fulfil the promise of giving each constituency 1 million dollars. They can’t do it. How many constituencies have so far received that money. I am telling you, if they do it, I will quit politics completely. Next year if the budget comes and it is captured that the money has been paid to them, I will quit politics’’ he emphasised on an Accra based radio station and monitored by BestNewsGH.com.
According to him, it has become practically impossible for the party to fulfil that promise, premising his argument on the fact that the party has not been able to make good its promise even though the timelines it gave have elapsed.
The ruling New Patriotic Party has promised to give every constituency some 1 million dollars to aid them carry out development projects in the various constituencies and to aid in job creation.
Mr. Jinapor also rubbished assertions by the ruling party that its 1 district 1 factory initiative is on course, arguing that it is a hoax, adding that the number of factories that were supposed to be rolled out by now falls short.
