The Ashanti Regional Youth Organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Dennis Kwakwa has described ex-President Mahama’s $10 Billion accelerated infrastructural plan, dubbed the ‘Big Push’ is “a plan to only push Mzbel and Tracy Boakye” and has asked Ghanaians to ignore the promise, MyNewsGh.com reports.
The NPP leader while speaking in an interview on ‘Pure Morning Drive’ on Kumasi-based Pure FM a day after the NDC held a town hall meeting in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital to explain their manifesto to residents in the region, described the NDC’s town hall meeting as a conjecture of lies and a supposition of their imagination rather than the will of the people.
He explained that contrary to claims that the NDC consulted Ghanaians in coming up with their manifesto promises, his ground research proofs otherwise hence, the manifesto being the result of ‘pure guess work’.
Mr. Dennis Kwakwa berated ex-President Mahama for ‘not having shame’ to come back to Ghanaians to seek a re-election bid after what he described as the ‘immense hardship’ he subjected Ghanaians especially those in the A/R into during his tenure in office.
Kwakwa described the big ‘push agenda’ as plan only directed to push Tracy Boakye and MzBel who are popularly known in the ‘papa no’ comment fame as the former President ‘lacks credibility and the zeal to follow through with the promise’.
“Mahama has no shame. He still has the courage to come and stand here (Kumasi) and tell us to give him a second chance. Is not the same place he said if he uses gold to do our roads, we will not be grateful and went ahead to neglect us?
Is this the same man that want us to trust him with our votes and power?… He talks about the Kejetia project as an unprecedented achievement in the Ashanti region. He seeks to insult our intelligence too. Don’t we have the Accident and Emergency unit here that was built by former President Kufuor?… How does he see us?”
“His so-called big push is only to push Tracey Boakye and MzBel which we all know he bought houses for them without them doing any job for the state. At least, they were pushed then and definitely, if we make the mistake to vote for him again, he will push them this time bigger with a so-called national agenda.” Dennis Kwakwa opined on Kumasi-based Pure FM.
The NDC flagbearer, John Mahama, has communicated his intention to create a $10 billion accelerated infrastructural plan, dubbed the ‘Big Push’, to provide jobs and execute an industrialisation plan should he be elected in December 2020 as the country’s President.
Mr. Mahama said in a speech during the launch of his party’s manifesto last week ahead of the December polls that “the US 10 billion accelerated infrastructural plan dubbed the ‘Big Push’ will create jobs for the multitude of our people. We’ll provide infrastructure for accelerated development and will fix the economy as we unite against poverty, create sustainable jobs under our ‘Adwuma Pa’ programme, promote good governance, integrity, anti-corruption, transparency and accountability and deepen the international relations amongst our sister nations”.
