Minority Leader Cries Out
Osei Kyei Mensah- Bonsu, the Minority New Patriotic Party (NPP) Leader in Parliament, has shed tears over how fast the country is sinking into an abyss due to bad governance by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
He observed with pain that the country is retrogressing at a faster rate under the watch of President John Dramani Mahama, who doesn't seem to have answers to Ghana's problems.
According to the minority leader, the rate at which Ghana is retrogressing should be a major concern to every patriotic citizen of the land who has the interest of Ghana and its people at heart.
Mr Kyei-Mensah- Bonsu, MP for Suame in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital, was addressing residents of Suame during the 'People's Forum' organized by Ashh FM on Friday.
The minority leader told the NDC government to be bold and openly accept that things are getting out of hands so that Ghanaians would appreciate the problems at hand and contribute their quota to solving them.
He stated that the NDC's decision to use propaganda to solve the mountainous problems currently facing the country would not gel, telling the party to stop relying on propaganda and rather tell the truth.
According to him, Ghana without oil in commercial quantities under eight years of ex-President Kufuor's NPP government, recorded massive transformation in all areas which contributed to better the lives of the populace.
He said within a little of over six years, the NDC government – with oil - had destroyed all the good things that the NPP government toiled hard to chalk for the country, 'and this is a great worry to me and the NPP as a political party.'
'All indications show that Ghana is retrogressing under the watch of President Mahama and the NDC government. In fact, my heart is bleeding for the country,' the minority leader lamented.
The Suame law maker said during the NPP's era, the country's GDP, inflation and interest rate were managed through proper planning and effective policies and programmes.
He bemoaned the fact that the trend is totally different under President Mahama's NDC government, saying that now the country's GDP, interest rate and inflation are nothing to write home about.
Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah- Bonsu openly 'cried' that poverty and extreme hardship are the order of the day in the country, lambasting the NDC administration for stifling the citizenry with their bad policies.
The NPP, he stated, is the only political party that has antidote to the myriad challenges currently facing the country and charged the people to vote massively for the NPP in the upcoming general elections.
