Akufo-Addo's 'one achievement, one launch' is new NPP strategy
Health Minister Kwaku Agyeman Manu has rejected
criticisms that government's launch of the
restoration of the nursing trainee allowance is a
waste of resources.

He explained that an extensive publicity for its
achievement is important in keeping the electorate
informed and guarding against propaganda.

Critics say an announcement of the restoration of
the allowance and subsequent payment to students
should have been sufficient in demonstrating
government's commitment to fulfilling the 2016
campaign promise.

But government granted the fulfilled promise a
pomp and pageantry status at the Nursing and
Midwifery College of Education in Brong Ahafo
regional capital, Sunyani.

The President Nana Akufo-Addo was joined by
ministers and students to celebrate the fulfilment
of a political promise.

Students were lined up to say 'thank you' to the
president and T-Shirts were printed and
distributed freely among students.

This is one of several other launches.
The NPP has so far launched its One district One
factory, the new National Identification System,
as well as the National Planting for Food and Job

The government launched a free SHS logo but it did
not stop it from also launching free SHS

It has also launched a cocoa spraying exercise and
there are indications that the establishment of
Development Authorities will also be launched
Some sections of the public are wearied about the
constant launching and its cost implications for
the taxpayer.

But the Health minister insisted the launch are
important because what candidate Nana Akufo-Addo
publicly promised to do, President Nana Akufo-Addo
must publicly declare it done.

"Nana made pledges. He didn't hide in any room to
make those pledges. It was in the open,  campaign
rallies with pomp and pageantry"

"So when he begins to deliver his promises that
one should be indoors? Only for journalists to
come and report for people to come and tell us
that it is never true?"

He said after the NPP lost power in 2008, some
communication experts told the media that the
defeat was partly because of the under-publicised
work of President Kufuor.

Eight years after that defeat, President Nana
Akufo-Addo and the NPP have learnt the hard way
and want a change in communication strategy, he
"Let us communicate our successes that one too has
become a problem?" he wondered.

Going down memory lane, the Minister said the
former Foreign Affairs Minister Hannah Tetteh used
state money to launch a booklet containing a
government policy that was never implemented.
