I’m an NDC activist following the happening from 1992 till now.
Its imperative to make this comparison whiles we ponder on the decision to make come 2020. A quick look at the price of fuel(Petrol) in 1992 through to 2000 shows relatively lower at GHS 2.38p, and by the year 2000, the price was GHC 5.00 per gallon.
As usual of the NPPs rhetoric, deceit they made an increment by GHC 6.40p. We can as well vividly recollect the persistent increase in the price of the fuel at the time. This is as a result of the incompetent leaders appointed to manage TOR and NPA.
They left the price at GHC 15.00 as at 2008.
NDC then took over in 2009 and as a result of better management of the economy, petrol price was pegged at 18 cedis for the 8years.
That clearly prove to Ghanaians NDC is good in managing our economy very well and their collective interests.
NDC is actually better in protecting the public purse as compared to the NPP.
Within 3years under Akuffo Addo government, petrol price is GHS24 per gallon, being the most high price ever recorded.
In April 2001,the Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) allowed the Electricity Company Ghana (ECG)to raise the retail price of Electricity by 96% the NDC never hit the streets with any DEMONSTRATION. Then Volta River Authority raised its wholesale electricity by 100% but the NDC did not DEMONSTRATE.
I keep wallowing as an ordinary Ghanaian for a while now because of the hardship facing us today.
I’m into pig farming sales hasn’t been anything to talk about because nothing is working at all.
Hardship is everywhere!
If you love Ghana then my humble appeal to you is to be resolute in 2020 and help vote NPP out, doing that is actually a constitutional fulfilment.
