Enough of promises; tell us the how – Prof. Dzidzornu

Political analyst Professor Clement Dzidzornu has questioned how politicians plan to achieve all the promises they are making in the run-up to the 2016 general elections.

According to Prof. Dzidzornu, the important thing that should be considered by politicians is how to achieve their promises.

He was speaking on Newday Saturday edition on TV3, which is also aired live on 3FM 92.7 ahead of the governing National Democratic Congress Manifesto launch.

‘‘A lot of these manifestos, it’s all about counting things. The NDC, NPP, CPP, is all about counting things and they think that it counts.

The president delivered a lovely speech during the highlights but he never said how it was going to be achieved. Same with all the promises the politicians are making.

‘‘For me the fundamental thing is what happens to developing an economy that will give us enough revenue to build more schools etc. How do they plan to fulfil these promises?’’
