President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has vowed to fulfill all major campaign promises made in the heat of the 2016 elections.
President Akufo-Addo who was speaking to thousands of National Patriotic Party (NPP) delegates at their party's 25th Conference in Cape Coast, said failure of past governments to fulfill campaign promises made to voters, have in no small way undermined the country’s democracy.
In order to restore hope in politicians and confidence in democracy, the president said all the major promises he made in the heat of the 2016 elections will be fulfilled.
However, the promises were many, some very ambitious.
The Akufo-Addo-led government, made promises such as; a free Senior High School education, One-District-One-Factory, One-Village-One Dam in the three Northern regions, a stable economy hinged on production and not taxation, an industrialised sector with lots of jobs for many unemployed youth.
"Based on these promises, his government was given an overwhelming mandate and the time has come for the president to deliver on the promises."
Holding its first delegates conference after the victory to assess the government's eight months in office and to make amendment and reforms, the president said the choice of Central Region as venue for the delegates conference is a reward for the phenomenal support the party had from the Central Region.
“The conference is an opportunity to congratulate everybody for the sacrifice for the great victory. Every part of Ghana responded to our call but no one responded more than the Central Region,” the president said.
