The Minister of Inner Cities and Zongos and the Deputy Campaign Manager of the New Patriotic Party says if Nana Akufo-Addo and John Mahama are compared in terms of credibility and integrity, Nana Addo stands tall.
He made this assertion when he was speaking at a press conference held in Accra yesterday, Monday, September 14, 2020.
He said ‘’It takes bold, decisive and visionary leadership to turn around the fortunes of a country whose economy was in a ditch. It bears remembering that this NPP government came into office at a time when another government had thrown its hands up in despair and run to the IMF for a bail out and for what it called “policy credibility.” The first task of any government should be to establish credibility in itself and in its ability to manage the affairs of the country. It is a massive dent on the sovereignty of a country, if its government looks for credibility from external sources.’’
Dr. Mustapha also said that Ghana lost its credibility but President has restored that.
‘’ Indeed, this country had so lost its sense of credibility, that it had to import plantain to feed its people. It is the responsibility of governments to create the enabling environment for farmers to work to feed a nation. The visionary and far sighted leadership of Akufo-Addo through the planting for food and jobs programme, has turned Ghana around from a net importer of food to a net exporter of food. Presently, Ghana exports the following food items to other ECOWAS countries- cashew, plantain, yam, cassava, maize, banana, pineapple, soya beans, coffee, coconuts, palm oil, shea butter and palm oil.’’
He further said that the management of the COVID-19 by the government has earned an admiration from the world. Dr. Mustapha Hameed has therefore asked Ghanaians to give the NPP another mandate in the December 7 elections
