NDC remains formidable to winning 2024 elections – Ablakwa

The Member of Parliament (MP) for the North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) remains formidable and is on course to win the 2024 elections in other to rescue the country from the mismanagement being witnessed under the Akufo-Addo-led government.

Mr Ablakwa said this when he joined members of the London South Branch of the NDC to speak on the theme: The Analysis, The Way Forward, 2024 Election Focus.

The former Deputy Minister for Education noted the NPP government has demonstrated lack of leadership, bad governance and poor vision in the administration of the country since they took over the reigns of government in 2017.

The MP insisted the NPP government is not sensitive to the plights of the ordinary Ghanaians, especially those in the diaspora and those who travel outside to transact business, and this was amply demonstrated when they decided to take advantage of a global pandemic such as Covid -19 to enrich themselves and their cronies.

An example, he noted, is when government decided to charge $150 for Antigen testing which is not even PCR testing for travellers at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA).

He said the amount was subsequently reduced to $50 after much protests, saying the existing price is very expensive compared to what pertains elsewhere.

Ablakwa further observed the country does not have vaccines for COVID-19 because of the bad leadership under the NPP government.

Urging the party faithfuls to work hard to secure victory for the NDC, Ablakwa said “President Akufo-Addo promised to protect the public purse, but what do we see now, there is actually a raid on the public purse.”

“Corruption is deeply seated in the NPP government with members of the government and their cronies siphoning from the public purse,” he added while expressing his disappointment in the government.

He went on to entreat members of the NDC to work together in unity and focus on election 2024, saying victory will come but it will not be on a silver platter.

“It will take hard work and determination,” he said.

Also at the meeting was the National Organizer of the NDC Joshua Akamba who said the party is taking stock of what happened during the 2020 election and will come out stronger for the 2024 election.
