The laughable episode which was not new underneath this ludicrous Akufo Addo govt began 24 hours right before the NPP introduced its manifesto last Saturday at Cape Coast. Just before the event, Akufo Addo was granted an interview on ATL Fm exactly where he categorically said the federal government simply cannot build an airport in Cape Coast simply simply because inhabitants have asked for for it. He additional observed that the decision to build these kinds of an edifice should to abide by laid down procedures which include feasibility research.
Having said that, in fewer than 24-hours Vice President Bawumia promised all through the manifesto start that the folks of Cape Coastline can be confident of their possess airport and harbor if the NPP wins the December polls. This conspicuous contradiction of the similar government’s posture by its best two gentlemen on the subject matter produced curiosity as to regardless of whether that is how the place is getting governed less than their ‘competent’ stewardship. Subsequently, tongues commenced wagging at regardless of whether the selection was a rational a single or it is just one of the usual untimely ejaculation selections that characterize the current routine.
As if to affirm what several Ghanaians were pondering, the Deputy Common Secretary of the NPP, Nana Obiri Boahen admitted in an job interview recently that the two statements of the two clearly perplexed men between the gentlemen NPP claimed to have had been taken in the spur of the moment. It is a worrying development in the Akufo Addo administration as a lot of important conclusions are introduced prior to their feasibility is considered. The revelation from the Kumawood film actions of them in Cape Coastline confirmed possibly the President was not mindful of what takes place in governing administration and oblivious of what they went there to do or the untenable guarantee was smuggled into the manifesto at the eleventh hour since they have absolutely nothing to offer the people today who hosted them for the event. A little something must be reported to placate them.
It will be recalled Akufo Addo for the duration of the past Presidential debate, and even right before then in an interview on the BBC, unsuccessful embarrassingly to estimate the value of the Cost-free SHS he promised if elected into place of work. The fears of the place had been confirmed immediately after the haphazard implementation of the plan uncovered severe lapses in the policy primary to infrastructural issues and the eventual collapse of our significant school process into a counterproductive double-track program. As a result, the current Free SHS exams which was turned into ‘Apo SHS Exams’ exposed the shoddy output of this Akufo Addo programme.
The a person district a person manufacturing facility, a person village 1 dam, a person constituency just one million pounds and each litany of their a single this just one that claims have been spontaneous marketing campaign utterances that arrived in the spur of the instant and are therefore proving difficult to implement since there is no appropriate framework of their conception. It is all about governance as you we see getting practiced below the recent government, there is no plainly outlined plan document on any of their claims, no obviously outlined program, no carefully investigated feasibility document on any of their guarantees, and so on. As we speak the governing administration is relying on the benevolence of private buyers to get a semblance of these factories getting a fact. The dams are hand-dug wells that contain sand as a substitute of water. There is no a single million for any constituency in the nation.
It is a common prevalence in this authorities that the President and his cousin Ken Ofori Atta whom he produced private Finance Minister for clear causes generally conflict in assumed. In one particular of his meaningless addresses to the nation about COVID-19 management in the place, the President declared to the whole nation that he was likely to create 88 regional and district hospitals this yr. His cousin incredibly went to parliament later to contradict him indicating the 88 hospitals are not able to be crafted this 12 months. Earlier in the calendar year when the COVID pandemic entered Ghana, the exact President declared he has offered USD100million to combat it. A week later his cousin in demand of Finance appeared to say that money did not exist but somewhat parliament ought to allow borrowing it from outdoors sources.
The foolish collapse of the fiscal sector less than this administration exposed the spur of the instant nature within their DNA more. In December 2019 Akuffo Addo declared all depositors of the banking companies he and his cousin Ofori Atta collapsed would be paid by the conclusion of 2019. Nothing at all took place it appeared to be a humorous presidential joke that languishing citizens ignorantly took severely. The subsequent announcement of the government on the challenge arrived 7 months later on when the receiver of collapsed banks, Eric Nana Nipah of PwC, proclaimed on Citi Fm that all influenced depositors shall be compensated by 31st July 2020. It is the stop of August now however the suffering depositors denied promises they were being compensated.
Ghanaians will have to now be wondering irrespective of whether the NPP’s claims put right before them are something to go by given that the confusion from the prime in getting selections in the spur of the minute are knee jerk, unsustainable, wishy-washy, verbose oral productions bereft of mental diligence. Their pronouncements have never ever stood the examination of time.
We ought to be frightened to be a part of a bus whose driver does not know in which his vacation spot is but may possibly just make a U-switch at the crossroads.
