‘Our worst is NPP’s best’ – Sammy Gyamfi to John Boadu
National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi has dismissed claims by General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu that, the NDC as a party has nothing to show in its 27 years of ruling Ghana.
According to him, such assertions are indeed the most laughable adding that, the track record of the NDC over the years supersedes that of the governing NPP.
His comment comes at the back of a press conference in Accra on Sunday, April 7, 2019 by the General Secretary of the NPP, John Boadu.
The ruling Party on Sunday appealed to Ghanaians not to make the “biggest mistake” again of entrusting the country’s resources, its future into the hands of John Mahama and his NDC.
The NPP said the previous Mahama administration virtually grounded the economy by taking oil-rich Ghana from a growth path of 14% to 3.4%.
However speaking to the media on Tuesday, the National Communication Officer of NDC, Sammy Gyamfi, compared the records of both parties on education, corruption and infrastructural development.
”The PNDC, NDC party which John Boadu seeks to attack can boost of minimum, seven regional hospitals that we have constructed for the people of this country. In the area of education, take for instance pre-schools, and here, we are just limiting ourselves to the period between 1993 and 2000, we constructed 6,321 pre-schools, while the Kufuor administration in eight years could only boast of 2, 360 schools.” he said.
He indicated that unlike the current NPP administration, the government of Mr. Mahama never covered up cases of corruption.
According to him, Mahama’s decision to contest the 2020 elections is causing fear among the rank and file of the NPP forcing them to hold Press conferences on Sundays.
