My first ‘assignment’ as Vice President was to track govt promises – Bawumia reveals

Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s first assignment he gave him as his number was to ensure he tracked all the political promises the NPP made during the election and peg them against deliverables.

Dr. Bawumia who was addressing Ghanaians in Dallas, United States over the weekend said so far the government has marvellously well based on his check of the promise dashboard and Akufo-Addo is keener to fulfil the rest of the outstanding promises.

“After we won the election and when we knew we were coming into government, one of the first things the President asked me to do was to make sure we track all our promises,” the Vice President revealed.

“So, we put a dashboard together and listed all our promises and then had to track them from day one. We put together this dashboard before January 7th, 2017. “

Dr Bawumia added that in President Akufo-Addo’s quest to fulfil his promises, his government has, since coming into office in 2017, meticulously implemented projects which are in line with his promises.

“From day one, if you observe the policies we have been implementing, you will see that they are very much aligned with all our promises in the 2016 manifesto. And we have continued tracking these policies on the dashboard and reporting to cabinet on it”.

He heaped praises on President Akufo-Addo for his leadership and vision over Ghana assuring Ghanaians in the diaspora that Ghana is in safe hands.
