The Ashanti Regional secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kwame Zu, has told President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) that Ghanaians are suffering under their administration.
Delivering the NDC’s solidarity message during the NPP’s national delegates conference in Kumasi on Sunday December 19, Mr Zu said “Teachers are suffering, doctors are suffering, market women are suffering.”
He further asked the president to reconsider the e-levy proposal in the 2022 budget because in his view, it will worsen the plight of Ghanaians.
“This is not the time for the set of draconian set of taxes. reconsider your decision to impose the 1.75 per cent el-levy,” he said.
Meanwhile, the National Chairman of the NPP Freddie Blay has said the governing party is the best to manage the economy of this country.
To that end, he called on the party to remain united ahead of the next general elections in order to continue staying in power to deliver good governance to Ghanaians.
Speaking during that NPP’s national delegates conference in Kumasi on Sunday December 19, he said “we are have to remain united so that at the end of the four years the people will vote for us or whoever represents in the 2024 elections.”
He further noted that his party is in a contest with a formidable opposition party that is ready to take advantage of their weakness.
He has therefore asked the NPP to remain united, eschew arrogance and keep its base stronger in order to withstand the opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Speaking at the national delegates conference in Kumasi on Sunday December 19, he said “if we are united, if we eschew arrogance, if we work with our people, if we keep base, come 2024 we shall still retain power.”
