The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has listed achievements by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo amidst ongoing debate over the best president in Ghana since independence.

The debate follows statement by the NPP flagbearer for the 2024 genenral elections, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh popularly known as Napo that no president in Ghana since independence has developed and protected the country better than  President Akufo-Addo.

Napo’s comment has met with criticism, especially the NDC and the CPP.

But the Director of Communications for the NPP, Richard Ahiagbah in a statement said political achievements are measured by comparisons.

“What is political communication without comparisons? Political achievements are not measured, can not be measured, or should not be measured in a vacuum. Comparison is how it is done.” He said.

Richard Ahiagbah mentioned among others Free SHS policy, Agenda 111, 1 District 1 Factory.

 

Below is the full statement

 

What is political communication without comparisons? Political achievements are not measured, can not be measured, or should not be measured in a vacuum. Comparison is how it is done.

This government has achieved significant milestones in the history of our four republics. Stating these unprecedented milestones should not be deemed a slight on the legacies of Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah or others. It’s political communication.

Some of the unprecedented achievements of this government include:

1. Implementation of a nationwide Free Senior High School (SHS) policy.

2. Provision of one ambulance per constituency.

3. 1D1F, the policy to establish at least one factory in each district.

4. Agenda 111, which entails the construction of 101 district hospitals, 7 regional hospitals, and 3 psychiatric hospitals.

5. Creation of 6 new regions simultaneously to bring development closer to the people.

6. Introduction of mobile money payment interoperability and a comprehensive digitalization agenda to ensure Ghana’s active participation in the Fourth Industrial Revolution.

7. Construction of 11,975.96 kilometers of roads, with additional roads currently under construction.

8. Expansion of the School Feeding Program to accommodate 3 million pupils daily.

9. President Akufo-Addo’s initiative to decentralize power by allowing the people to elect Metropolitan, Municipal, and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs).

These accomplishments are genuinely unprecedented. According to available records from the four republics, no other president or head of state has achieved similar feats.

I urge you to vote for the Bawumia-Napo ticket to drive more positive developments for Ghana.
