President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has admitted that he may not be able to fulfil all the campaign promises he made ahead of the 2016 election.
President Akufo-Addo was speaking at the 2017 Blomberg Africa Business Media Innovators Summit in Accra on Monday, November 13, 2017.
He admitted that his campaign promises are ambitious hence his doubt.
“I have ambitious promises, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to fulfil all of them,” he said.
He outlined some of his promises on the campaign trail. These include Free SHS programme, One District, One Factory, One Village, One Dam, Office of the Special Prosecutor among others.
According to President Akufo-Addo Ghana needs such policies to ensure there is a positive change in the lives of citizens.
However, he fears that the four-year term of his government may not see all his promises fulfilled.
He was quick to add that his government was working tirelessly to build a robust economy by creating jobs through the agriculture sector under the Planting for Food and Jobs programme among others.
Already, his government has started fulfilling some of the promises they made on the campaign trail.
The NPP government has rolled out the Free Senior High School programme, the digital property address system, restoration of the nurse’s allowance, the paperless system at the ports, the One District, One Factory policy and the E-registration at the Registrar General’s department.
