Election 2020 Will Not Be About “419” Promises; Wake Up – Sammy Gyamfi To Nana Addo
"Election is about promises, but failure to fulfill those promises are ammunitions to lose votes and possibly lead to the opposition." that is a message directed to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) by candid Sammy Gyamfi.
The National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) noted that Ghanaians come December 7 will not trade their votes for sham promises by President Akufo-Addo as his strategy to again win the December 2020 polls.
“One thing President Akufo-Addo must understand is that the 2020 elections will not just be about promises but also a comparison of records.” He noted
In a statement, Mr. Gyamfi held that ‘enough is enough’ of the ‘bogus’ promises by the leader of this current government.
“On yet another grandiose, "419", recycled promise to build 94 hospitals in one (1) year, the least said about it the better. This President has failed to fulfill the one district, one hospital promise he made to Ghanaians in the run-up to the 2016 general elections, found on Page 34, paragraph (g) of NPP’s 2016 manifesto.”
“That promise has not crystallized into a single hospital in almost four years of this government despite the fact that they have had access to over GHS260 billion in total resources since 2017.” He said
Adding that “President Akufo-Addo will do his reputation some good by first completing the hundreds of abandoned Mahama health infrastructure projects across the country, before he decides to waste the taxpayers’ money on fraudulent sod-cuttings for votes. Ghanaians will not be hoodwinked by his deceptive ‘Agenda 88’ and for that matter any of his corny deceptions again.”
Wake Up And Work
Sammy Gyamfi, however, called on Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to ‘stop being lazy’ as a president.
“What the Ghanaian people want to see in action, not words. Wake up and wake.” He said
