The Convention People’s Party (CPP) has taken a swipe at both the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC), describing them as lacking focus and an unthinking government anytime they have the opportunity to lead this country.
The CPP’s National Youth Organizer Comrade Osei Kofi Acquah, speaking as a guest on a radio talk discussion on Ultimate FM to mark the Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Day holiday monitored by MyNewsGh.com, noted that, any suffering that has befallen the country is as a result of these parties lacking vision just as Kwame Nkrumah, the first President did for Ghana.
He says whereas Dr. Kwame Nkrumah was a visionary leader and worked with a thinking team while in government; all other leaders have acted in ways that do not inure to the benefit of the nation Ghana.
‘‘Once upon a time, a thinking government brought the state farming, the government went into farming to feed the citizens, today most of the causes of high inflation is in the agricultural sector’’
‘‘The 50 pesewas kenkey is now 3 cedis, the gari and beans is now high, a tuber of yam, you don’t want to hear it’’
‘‘How do you expect the ordinary Ghanaian to survive in this hardship,’’
‘‘The CPP, was a thinking government, since the inception of the 1992 constitution, the NPP and the NDC are not thinking, I don’t want to say they don’t have brains but they are not thinking’’ he said
‘‘This is what they do, they get a little money, they spend it haphazardly, they go to the IMF and tell them that we have come to teach us what to do, give us credibility policy and all those things’’
‘‘Oh yes, the CPP was a thinking government, we set up industries, the 7 years industrialization plan is there for people to see.
‘‘Osagyefo after building the Akosombo dam said all regions needed a hydro dam to kick start industries in every part of the country, what do you call such a government’’ he questioned.
He is urging, a return of the country to the vision, Ghana’s first President Kwame Nkrumah, had else we will continue to wallop in our economic misery.
‘Osagyefo Dr Kwame Nkrumah set up supermarkets, ask the NDC where are they?’’
‘‘Today you go to Kumasi mall, Accra mall, and you see the Chinese malls and all those malls’’
‘‘Where are our state malls? We are jokers’’
‘‘I am telling you again, once upon a time there was a thinking government’’
‘‘What we have now is the government which doesn’t think’’
