The current economic doldrums notwithstanding, the Upper East Regional Minister is confident that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has performed creditably to the admiration of Ghanaians.
It is the reason the Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu believes the NPP would be successful in its attempt to ‘break the 8’.
Speaking in a recent interview with A1 Radio’s Mark Smith, the Regional Minister explained that the NDC’s only contribution to the country was thwarting the development efforts of the NPP.
“I’m very confident. I know that Ghanaians would give us [the opportunity to break the 8]. We are one of the best parties if not the best party. Look at what we are doing in the country.”
Mr. Yakubu explained that as a party, the NPP has always been audacious in fixing the country’s problems. “We are daring people. We dream big. We want to do big things. In doing so, you will definitely have problems as you go along but the good thing is that we face these problems head-on. That is exactly what we are doing.”
“That gives us an advantage over another party that comes and thinks that, look, I am not going to do anything for anyone to criticise me. When you are a leader and people are criticising you, then it means you are performing; you are working because you are daring. You are doing things that nobody wants to do. I think that it is a good thing that Ghanaians are criticising us. It is a good thing that Ghanaians are straightening us and we are listening. We are a listening government.”
“We are building this country. We are developing this country. We are the only single party that has developed this country from 1966 up to now. If you look at our record, it will tell you. The NDC comes to power, they mess up, we come and pick it up, then we move on and we develop.”
Earlier, the Upper East Regional Minister, Stephen Yakubu questioned the contribution of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to national development.
