John Agyekum Kufour former president has rated the performance of the ruling NPP government 70 per cent.
The former President believes the sound economic policies by the NPP alone should be enough to fight corruption in the country
The NPP on Saturday launched its 2020 manifesto in the Central Region capital, Cape Coast, with a promise of several policies to be implemented should they win the 2020 elections.
Reacting to the policies that were outlined in the manifesto the former president said “the free school and free water and electricity” alone should help fight corruption in the country
He said in Twi that “the economy was bad when they took over from [John Dramani Mahama but when you look at the performance so far, with the creation of the new regions; Ghana is better placed for development”.
Former President Kufour noted that “with the Covid-19 pandemic and how it has been managed…look at other countries like China, US, UK, and other big nations were scattered…but Akufo-Addo and his government has been able to manage it well and that leadership”.
He said: “I look at Akufo-Addo and asked, have you been given an injection to perform this way? Because looking at the development, it is marvelous”.
Mr. Kufour said “these good policies are helping because they did not meet money but they have made the market very positive for every Ghanaian”.
On fighting corruption in the country, the former president said several policies should be taken into consideration.
“The accuser needs to be charged. The police will come in. The courts will come in. Judges and lawyers as well because we have laws in this country and all these should be taken into account”.
