NDC has taken Ghana backwards - Konadu Apraku

Former Trade and Industry Minister in the erstwhile Kufuor administration, Dr. Kofi Konadu Apraku, is urging Ghanaians to vote out the National Democratic Congress (NDC) out of office for gross mismanagement of the economy.

The NDC, he explained, has taken the country backwards in terms of its developmental course with key sectors such as energy and health in tatters.

Dr. Apraku stated the NDC has eroded all the gains made by the Kufuor administration and that the revenues from the oil exploration are also being wasted by the NDC government on frivolous expenditures.

He said the NPP during its eight-year reign was able to achieve a lot for the country without proceeds from oil exploration because the party had experienced men and women with the requisite skills to address the challenges facing the country then thereby propelling the country unto higher pedestal.

Speaking at the campaign launch of the Cape Coast North Parliamentary Candidate Barbara Asher Ayisi, Dr Konadu urged Ghanaians to vote back the NPP into office as the party has the right human resource base and policies to turn around the dwindling fortunes of the country to make life easy for all.

The NDC, he told NPP supporters, has taken the country backwards and if not stopped will plunge the country into the abyss, resulting in untold hardship on Ghanaians.
