We are ready to rescue the sinking ship – NPP

The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) is urging Ghanaians to show the Mahama-led National Democratic Congress (NDC) the red card in 2016.

According to the opposition party, it is evident the driver [Mahama] and his mate [Amissah Arthur] are “clueless in the face of the grotesque maladministration”.

Minority Leader, Osei-Kyei Mensah-Bonsu revealed this at a press conference to respond to the 2015 budget statement of government.

He cited among other things the economic mismanagement, massive unemployment, high cost of living as the legacy of the Mahama government.

The NPP man indicated that the 2015 budget is meaningless to Ghanaians because it does not provide any solution to ensure microeconomic stability.

The Member of Parliament for Suame was however confident there will be light at the end of the tunnel if Ghanaians make the right decision ahead of the 2016 general elections.

“A local adage puts it more succinctly: “akyea na 1mmui, 1sen ab1buo nyinaa d1” to wit “even though it (the economy) is heavily tilted, it is not completely broken and hence it can be salvaged”.

Osei-Kyei Mensah-Bonsu called on all well-meaning Ghanaians to join the NPP in the fight for liberation.

“Fellow Ghanaians let us all come together, roll up our sleeves and put our shoulders to the wheel to rescue this sinking ship, as clearly a Sinking Fund alone cannot do it”.
