Immediate past Director of Communications for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Adomkao Baafi has replied the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) that government used the 40 billion cedis it borrowed over the last two years in servicing debts that were left behind by the erstwhile NDC administration under former president John Dramani Mahama.
According to him, the NDC had the penchant for buying without paying and has bequeathed to the current administration, a huge debt which it is still servicing till date.
‘’They get up and ask what have we done with the 40 billion cedis we borrowed. It is not difficult to answer them at all. We used it to pay for the bonds they contracted, free Senior High School, energy sector debt, education, health insurance and school feeding among others’’ he said.
Mr. Adomako Baafi said in due course, the NPP will compile the list of projects it has expended the money on, adding that the party was fully satisfied with the direction it was headed and will not be distracted by the nagging of the opposition NDC which sees nothing good in every policy initiated by the current government.
‘’I am pleading with those incharge to put the list together so that we can leverage on social media and splash it out there for the generality of the Ghanaian people to see. Whether we like it or not, the new media has taken precedence over the traditional media. So we need to leverage on that and make people understand what we have done and what we are doing’’ he said.
He said the NPP will not borrow and give it to guinea fowls to travel adding ‘’we won’t borrow and do bus branding in which everyone knows former president Rawlings is fairer than John Mahama but because of wickedness they made him black and made himself (John Mahama) fair.’’
