“Akufo-Addo has done well. He has initiated numerous programmes such as; 1D1F, Planting for Food and Jobs, Free SHS, but we all know that currently, times are hard. Due to this hardship, our key message for campaigning as a party for the 2024 election has become difficult to identify. I won’t lie to you, times are hard and any truthful person will tell you this,” he said.
The former Minister was speaking during a visit to the Sefwi Wiawso Traditional Council, on Saturday, Mr. Kyerematen said he is the most suitable person for the NPP’s flagbearer position.
“One of our main challenges as a country is the tendency for successive governments not to continue with their predecessor’s programmes and projects. This is what has derailed our development efforts. I therefore urge you to allow the NPP government to continue until this country develops to an appreciable state,” he added.
