Nobody should tell you to change leadership December 7 – Abdallah Salifu

The Upper East Regional Communications Officer, Jonathan Abdallah Salifu, is confident that the present economic challenges are reason enough to convince the average Ghanaian to vote out the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

“Where we have gotten to, I am not the one to tell anyone to change. Someone took the exchange rate, and it went up in monetary value by GH¢3. For eight years, that was the only depreciation. You took it from GH¢4.20. Today it is GH¢15. You know how much has been added, right. If this is not incompetence, then what do you describe as incompetence?”

Mr. Abdallah Salifu made these comments when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.

The discussion focused on the plight of the average Ghanaian who has to deal with rising fuel prices, upward adjustment in tariffs, and a depreciating cedi.

The Upper East Regional Communication Officer explained that the current hardships make nonsense of the abilities of the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the reason he should be rejected come December 7.

Meanwhile, immediate past Upper East Regional Communications Officer for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Issah Sanusi, is convinced that only God can determine when the average Ghanaian would not be overwhelmed with the current economic situation and be comfortable.

Mr. Sanusi explained that despite the strain that the global pandemic had put on the local economy, the government had remained steadfast in promoting policies that would bring the economy back on track.

He admitted that some of the policies, like the One District One Factory, had not yielded the desired results but was quick to add that this was because many of the policies are long-term policies that may take time to come to full fruition.

“The government has not lost focus on these things. What would have been the situation if these things were not in place? The situation could have been worse than what we have today. This is not an event; it is a process. When factories are set up, it can even take them some time before they break even, let alone make a profit. So maybe, we may not see the results immediately.”
