Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Koku Anyidoho, has stated that he would be very happy if president-elect Nana Akufo-Addo and the in-coming New Patriotic Party (NPP) government succeed in fulfilling the promises they made to Ghanaian’s during the campaign period.
Speaking to Class FM on Thursday, Mr Anyidoho believes that the success of the NPP administration will be a success for Ghana “if Akufo-Addo succeeds and Ghana succeeds, we all benefit – don’t we?”
“If education is free, if water is free, electricity is free, no more taxes, one factory in one district, one dam in one village, allowances are restored across the board and we live in a free society, I will be the happiest person on earth. If I go and the petrol is free, it will not be free for only NPP people, it will be free for Ghanaians, so, let them come and fulfil their promises”, he added.
According to him “it will be irresponsible on my part to go on my knees and pray that Ghana should not progress because the NPP is in power. God forbid. Let them succeed and then we all succeed but the question is that: ‘Will they be able to succeed and fulfil all their promises?’ That is another matter altogether, but, indeed, we wish them well and we are promising them that we are going to be a very responsible opposition. …Where praise is due, we will praise, but where we must criticise, we will criticise. Where we must remind them of their promises, we shall remind them of their promises.”
