Member of Parliament for Suame Constituency in the Ashanti Region, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has stated that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) is better at managing the affairs of the country than the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Speaking in an interview on Okay FM’s Adea Akye Bia programme on March 21, 2023, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu cited the economic performance of the former President John Dramani Mahama’s administration, indicating that due to bad economic management, the nation was importing basic commodities like food from neighbouring countries.
He explains that even with the Covid-19 pandemic, the NPP government has performed 300% better than the NDC. He added that the NDC administration performed abysmally even in the absence of crises like the Russian-Ukrainian war, the effects of which the NPP administration is currently dealing with.
“During the administration of the NDC, we didn’t see Covid, and we didn’t see the Russian-Ukraine war, so you can trace their records from president Mills to President Mahama’s administration and compare them with Akufo-Addo’s own,” he said.
The lawmaker highlighted the initiatives introduced by the NPP administration to support the economic well-being of the citizens and ensure that all key economic indicators point in a positive direction.
