Political science lecturer at the Methodist University, Dr. Osei Bonsu has admonished the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP). to fulfill their major campaign promises or risk losing the 2020 polls.
Speaking on Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, the political science lecturer touched on three major campaign promises the NPP would have to work on in order to secure their victory in 2020.
He said, ‘’although the free SHS is being implemented, I will encourage government to resolve the challenges confronting the policy. Government should also ensure it fulfills the one-district-one factory policy. We have to see signs that the policy has started. The one-village-one dam should also be fulfilled. When this is done, I am sure Ghanaians would not hesitate to retain them in power.’’
He added, ‘’the NPP may have satisfied some Ghanaians but there may be some others who are not satisfied because he has not been able to fulfill the promises based on which they voted for him. If government is unable to satisfy these people, I am not sure they will vote for the party in 2020.’’
He used the opportunity to encourage voters to interrogate the promises made by politicians in order to hold them accountable.
Some of the promises by politicians he said are impossible to be done hence the need for voters to subject politicians to scrutiny when they promise to do something on campaign platforms.
