NDC launches website to track NPP government’s ‘failed promises’

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has launched a website, www.nppfailedpromises.com, to track what it terms as failed promises of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.

The website, according to the party, is to help fact-check the promises of the government.

The NPP government in February 2020 launched a website, www.delivery.gov.gh, to monitor its manifesto promises.

Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia who launched the website then said government had achieved 78 per cent of its 388 manifesto promises.

But launching the “npp failed promises” website, the Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu, Mr Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, said the NPP government made 631 manifesto promises, out of which it had achieved only 86.

“We have discovered that the 631 promises that we listed, after thorough analysis, combing through documents, what they’ve told us in Parliament, ladies and gentleman, it will shock you to realize that only 86 out of this 631 promise that has been delivered. So the percentage achieved is 14%, not 78%,” he said.
