The current Deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Volta region, Joshua Makubu, has confidently stated that, the region is no longer the ‘World Bank’ for the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
He called on the NDC to stop seeing the region as their strong hold because the performance of Nana Addo, has exposed how woefully the NDC performed and how the umbrella family took residents for granted.
He said, ‘’the people of Volta region have not regretted voting for NPP and President Nana Akufo-Addo because comparing the performance so far of the current government against the so called government that sees Volta region as their world bank, I think most people are beginning to realize that, for the past years, we have also wasted our time and we have now started voting for the right party to give us a better governance.’’
On those claiming that the NPP has not performed, he said, no matter what the government does, there are elements that will still attack government based on their expectations.
‘’The NPP is delivering on our campaign promises. We took over office over the past one and a half years but our records have shown that, we are doing our best. In 2016, our major campaign promise was to ensure that every Ghanaian child is admitted into senior high school without any hindrance. We also promised to implement the three percent common fund for persons with disability and we have done that,’’ he touted.
Joshua Makubu stressed, the performance of this administration is good and I am happy and the people in the Volta region are also happy about the performance of Nana Addo and his administration. Nana Addo has shown commitment and that is a positive sign of a visionary leader,’’ he added.
The deputy scribe who is vying to retain his seat said his records have paid off for the party and he has produced an MP and by 2020 he is optimistic to produce more MPs should they retain him in office.
He admonished party delegates to have confidence in his competence and retain him as the deputy scribe.
