Vice President, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia says the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government has reduced the level of unemployment in the country.
This, he stated is because the Akufo-Addo administration has created 2.1 million jobs since 2017, adding that the figure can not be matched by any government since independence.
“During the NDC administration, there were no jobs, they created unemployment instead of employment but these days there are jobs everywhere. I have been looking at the data lately and we have created 2.1 million jobs,” he pointed out.
He made this comment while addressing party supporters after a health walk at Mpraeso on Saturday.
According to him, the NPP government has created “975, 000 jobs in the private sector, 1.2 million in the public sector, this is verifiable and identifiable data which is available.”
“We are not done yet because there are more jobs for us to create. But when it comes to job creation, no government since Independence has created more jobs than the government of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, anybody can challenge me and I will provide the data.”
“But we want to do more, we want to get to the Promised Land. We can be a Dubai, we can a South Korea, we can a Singapore, it is possible,” he added.
On his part, the General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Justin Frimpong Kodua urged Ghanaians to maintain faith in the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia administration since measures are in place to restore the economy to its former glory.
He assured that the NPP is the only party capable of resolving the current economic crisis.
“Akufo-Addo has stated that the NPP has the men to turn the economy around. We are confident that by the end of the year, the economy will be in good shape. We just need your support because the alternative is worse, it is empty and hopeless.”
