President John Dramani Mahama on Tuesday insisted his government has in the past three years laid a solid foundation for Ghana’s development to thrive.
According to him, his administration has invested in Ghana’s infrastructure, noting the road, health, education, energy and agricultural sectors have witnessed tremendous improvement.
Addressing supporters of the National Democratic Congress at Yeji and Prang in the Pru District of the Brong Ahafo Region, President Mahama asked Ghanaians to renews his mandate to enable him create jobs to alleviate poverty.
He pledged his government’s commitment to ensure that the socio-economic wellbeing of Ghanaians will be guaranteed in the coming years.
President Mahama and his entourage are expected to tour Tano North, Tano South, Kintampo North, and Nkoranza North, Jaman North, Tain and Asutifi North districts of the Brong Ahafo Region in his campaign.
He is also expected to visit Dormaa West, Nkoranza South and Techiman North and Asunafo North Municipalities.
Rome not build in a day
President Mahama argued that “Rome was not built in a day,” hence the need for Ghanaians to give the NDC additional four-year mandate to facilitate rapid socio-economic development.
He emphasized that 2017 will be a year of economic transformation for all classes of Ghanaians under his second term.
The President said his second term will prioritise livelihood empowerment, announcing that more than 400,000 youth will be engaged under the National Youth Employment Programme from 2017 to 2021.
He said his government will also place high premium to improve on agriculture, a law will soon be passed for the establishment of the Cashew Development Board. That, he explained, will promote the cashew industry.
