Johnson Asiedu Nketia, General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has mocked the President of Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo over recent sod-cutting events held across the nation despite the upcoming 2020 elections.
Speaking at the Townhall Meeting in Kumasi in the Ashanti Region on the ‘People’s Manifesto’, Mr. Nketia was bewildered as to why the President was now performing sod-cutting ceremonies as he had ample time to do so in the past.
According to Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the government in power had failed in their attempts to gain favour by performing so-cutting activities to aid in their victory.
The chief scribe of the umbrella family said: “you had been given four years and as you are in the fourth year and it is time to give an account of your actions you are performing sod-cutting. If you were unable to do projects in your first three years what can you do in the last three months? Is it possible to build roads in three months? Can you build hospitals in three months? Can we construct pipes in three months?”
Mr. Nketia also expressed concern at the inability of the government to set up the Neoplan Assembly Plant but rather gave a foreign entity the freedom to set up shop in the country.
However, he noted that the NDC would soon launch a campaign to give a detailed explanation of their manifesto sector by sector.
The party, he hinted will have congregations with various individuals and groups to explain the manifesto and accused the NPP of stealing and implementing their policies after criticizing and describing them as empty.
