Mills' tributes are testimony of a successful NDC government-Quashigah
The Propaganda Secretary of the governing National
Democratic Congress says the flood of tributes by
ordinary Ghanaians to the late President John
Mills is an overwhelming testimony that the people
of Ghana are happy with the performance of the
government and will retain them in power in
Richard Quashigah insisted that the NDC government
has to a large extent met the needs of Ghanaians
having been in power for barely four years.
He was responding to yesterday's press conference
organized by the NPP chairman, Jake Obetsebi
Lamptey in which he catalogued what he said were
highlights of President John Mahama's incompetence
Lamptey said the pair of President John Mahama and
Vice President Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur is
anything but successful, having abysmally failed
in their capacities as head of economic management
team and Governor of the Bank of Ghana
He said the country cannot be entrusted into the
hands of these men for another four years having
already failed in their first test.
But Propaganda Secretary of the NDC Richard
Quashigah said the concerns by the NPP are only a
figment of their own imaginations and do not
reflect the opinions of ordinary Ghanaians.
He said if the tributes that poured in for the
late president John Mills are anything to go by,
one can safely conclude that the NPP has lost
touch with ordinary Ghanaians and is only obsessed
by its thirst for power.
“All indications are that the economy is still
robust. The economy today is better than the way
we met it."
He said for all the years the late President Mills
stayed in office, all the NPP did was to call him
an incompetent president but Ghanaians disagree
and they showed it clearly in their tributes.
“They accused the former president of being
incompetent. Yet when you listen to the tribute
from ordinary Ghanaians from the nook and cranny
of ordinary Ghanaians; on the radio stations and
on TVs you will come to the conclusion that the
NPP has not actually been interacting with the
Ghanaian people because the Ghanaian people are
very convinced that the three and half years the
record of the NDC is solid and they will win the
In these three years the Propaganda Secretary said
the lives of Ghanaians have improved in many
“The ordinary Ghanaian people believe that
portable water which they didn't have, have
reached them, electricity has reached them;
schools that they didn't have, have been built…”
“These were the testimonies we saw and heard from
ordinary Ghanaians. These were people who never
had the opportunity as the NPP will always have to
speak to the media and express what they think and
what they feel.
He said whilst the NPP trumpet failure by the NDC
the ordinary Ghanaians are applauding the giant
strides being made by the government.
He said the NPP is only panicking having seen
defeat staring them in the face.
