NDC only good at creating unemployment but we’ve created 2.1 million jobs – Bawumia dares anybody to challenge him

The National Democratic Congress (NDC), under President John Mahama, only created unemployment while in office but the Akufo-Addo administration has created 2.1 million jobs so far, Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has said.


Addressing party supporters at Mpraeso after a health walk Saturday, 8 April 2023, Dr Bawumia said: “During the NDC administration, there were no jobs; they created unemployment instead of employment but these days there are jobs everywhere”.

“I have been looking at the data lately and we have created 2.1 million jobs”.

He said 975, 000 of those jobs are in the private sector while 1.2 million are in the public sector.


“This is verifiable and identifiable data which is available”, Dr Bawumia noted.

Dr Bawumia told the crowd: “We are not done yet because there are more jobs for us to create”.

“But when it comes to job creation, no government since independence has created more jobs than the government of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo”, daring: “Anybody can challenge me and I will provide the data”.

“But we want to do more; we want to get to the Promised Land. We can be a Dubai, we can be a South Korea, we can be a Singapore’ it is possible”, he noted.


At the same event, the General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr Justin Frimpong Kodua, said the government will fix the ravaged economy by the end of the year.

“Akufo-Addo has stated that the NPP has the men to turn the economy around. We are confident that by the end of the year, the economy will be in good shape. We just need your support because the alternative is worse, it is empty and hopeless”.
