Ghanaians have shared varied opinions on the first 100 days of President Akufo -Addo.Some residents in Kumasi speaking to our correspondent Kwabena Amoateng said the president has done well in his first 100 days and in the course of his campaign, he promised to cut some nuisance taxes, restore the teacher and nursing training allowances.One resident said, if the president should continue in this manner, he will achievement more and Ghana will benefit economically.Another commended the effort by government in the agric sector.Others also expressed disappointment in the government claiming that, the current administration promised to deliver in the first three months and make Ghanaians feel better than what they experienced under the NDC.Some residents within the Tamale metropolis expressed their gladness towards Nana Addo's government, rating his first 100 days over 90%, but called on Ghanaians to support the government in order to deliver more to the benefit of Ghanaians. The Vice President last Monday said the government did not make any 100 days promises but managed to deliver on 103 campaign promises. Vice President Bawumia, even though acknowledged that the government had made some significant progress since taking over from the National Democratic Congress (NDC), the NPP never promised to fulfill its campaign promises within 100 days.“We did not make promises for 100 days but we can point to some significant achievements,” he said, adding that that had been done despite inheriting a “difficult economic situation.”Dr Bawumia said to restore fiscal discipline and macro-economic stability, the NPP government is re-profiling Ghana’s public debt: $2.25 billion of cedi sovereign bonds, up to a 15-year tenor, at 19.75%, and had brought what he called “massive boost to our gross international reserves from $6 billion to $8 billion.”He said the government had reduced inflation rate from 15.4% to 12.8%, allocated the cedi equivalent of $1 million (GHs 4.1 million) to each constituency for economic development and poverty reduction and also restored confidence in the macro-economy by anchoring fiscal policy on the pillars of credibility, clarity and transparency
