Mark Okraku-Mantey, Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, believes economic difficulties have impacted the government's ability to communicate its achievements to the public.

In an interview on Accra-based JoyNews on Tuesday, July 18, Okraku-Mantey said the NPP communicators now finds it hard to trumpet government’s achievements.

"I think that because of the economic challenges that we have, we have been affected by not being able to communicate some of the good things we have done,” he said.

The Deputy Minister, who is contesting the NPP primaries in Ayensuano in the Eastern region hopes to highlight government's track record.

"If I am able to trumpet what we have done, I am sure my people will give me the nod," he said.

According to Okraku-Mantey, fixing a major road could boost NPP's chances in the constituency.

"I know that the biggest challenge in my constituency is the road and if we get this done can give us back our seat," he asserted.

The NPP lost the Ayensuano parliamentary seat in the 2020 elections after having won it for five consecutive times since 2000.
