Former National Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Kofi Adams last Monday said that the New Patriotic Party has failed to create permanent jobs for the citizenry and only trumpets the slogan of temporary jobs.

Kofi Adams argued that the NPP’s flagship programs such as the ‘One District, One Factory’, ‘One Village, One Dam’ and the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO) program are not sustainable jobs for the people of the country but are just slogans.

But the National Organiser of the NPP, Sammi Awuku in an interview on Happy FM’s Epa Hoa Daben show with Kwame Afrifa-Mensah said when it comes to slogans, the NDC is expert. “The NDC are experts in sloganeering. Ghanaians know the NPP for Good policies and implementation of it. It is obvious that when it comes to sloganeering Ghanaians respect the NDC for that.”

He added that “He is contesting for the seat of the Member of Parliament (MP) in his constituency, I don’t wish Kofi Adams success but I wish him luck.”

Earlier this year, the Deputy Minister for Employment and Labour Relations Bright Wireku-Brobbey, in a State of the Nation Address (SONA) debate on the floor of parliament, disclosed however that the Government has created 2.2 million jobs since 2017.

He noted that the majority of jobs since 2017 have been in the informal space.
