The New Patriotic Party (NPP) during the 2016 and 2020 elections made luxurious promises to Ghanaians; promises that included the creating of jobs for all the youth.
In fact, the NPP in their manifestos promised to set up Ghana for entrepreneurial success by supporting every Ghanaian with a business idea to set up their businesses and employ other people.
Led by Akufo-Addo, the NPP were very agile in their quest for power and ensured that promises were made that drove straight into the hearts of the Ghanaian voter, convincing them beyond all reasonable doubts to vote in their favour.
Today, we take a look at one of the videos that came out from one of the campaign trails of the NPP where they promised to create enough jobs to the extent that people will be imported to come to take the surplus positions.
The promise was loudly announced by John Boadu, the General Secretary of the NPP which was hailed joyously by teeming party supporters who were bursting at the seams. Many were very upbeat about the NPP and remained positive about their promises…although some of the promises appeared unrealistic and unfeasible.
“The NPP will create enough jobs that people will be imported to Ghana to come work”, John Boadu of NPP said.
However, it is obvious that promise is yet to see the light of day since many Ghanaians are still jobless..those employed are paid meagre salaries, have no job security and looking for ways to bounce out of the system.
What happened then, to the promise? What went wrong? When should Ghanaians expect those jobs to materialize? These are harmless questions to the powers that be.
