NDC social interventions: we distributed free sandals, uniforms and exercise books-NDC replies Bawumia

The opposition National Democratic Congress has responded to the challenge thrown to it by Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to show which of their social policy interventions actually relieved Ghanaians of hardship.

According to the party, its social intervention programmes include the distribution of free school uniforms, sandals and exercise books.

Communications team member of the party, Alhaji Halidu Haruna reacting to the Vice President’s challenge on an Accra based Television station and monitored by BestNewsGH.com, said the Vice President’s comments was akin to a serial caller leveling petty accusations against the NDC.

The Vice President, who was giving brief remarks at the 2018 joint Annual Dinner and Dance of the United Kingdom branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the Young Executives Forum (YEF) on Saturday 20th October, 2018, said the NPP, under President Nana Akufo-Addo, has a record to be proud of, and urged Ghanaians to do a dispassionate analysis of any interventions introduced by the immediate past government, which had 8 years, and that of the currently 20 month-old government.

He said “It is a simple challenge. Tell us the social interventions that the NDC brought to reduce the hardships on Ghanaians. If you ask me, I will tell you what Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has done in 20 months. I will tell you about Free SHS, I will tell you about teacher training allowances, I will tell you about nursing training allowances, I will tell you about Capitation Grant. I will tell you about reductions in electricity prices. I will tell you about NABCO that will provide a hundred thousand jobs to graduates, I will talk to you about reductions in taxes.’’

But the NDC says the vice president’s challenge is hollow and carries and lacks merit.

Communications team member of the party and former deputy information Minister, Felix Kwakye Ofosu in reaction said the vice president is narrow minded when it comes to his understanding of social intervention programmes.
