Ghana’s 2020 election campaigns are never ending, the elections of 7 December now are the right elections for us.
So in order to help Ghanaians better understand the issues affecting Monday’s vote, BBC Pigeon has lit the West African economy and has been recording corruption results since 2012.
Ghana’s 2020 elections are mainly between two candidates who have held the office of President of Ghana for the past eight years.
Former President John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress and incumbent Nana Akufo Addo of the New Dee Patriotic Party will be the main contenders in the Ghana 2020 presidential race.
Dis time de tweo dey candidates request another four years to make Ghana great again.
Let us take a look at some of the key sectors, and Witten Dima vs. performance during his first term.
The 2012 NDC Statement Promises
Focusing on economic development priorities to improve the lives of Ghanaians through investment
• Maintaining the single-digit inflation rate.
• Ensuring the stability of the exchange rate
Significant debt reduction
Maintain an average annual growth rate of at least 8%
Promise NPP Statement 2016
To build a more business-friendly and friendly economy for Africa, we are going to create jobs and prosperity for all Ghanaians.
Double-digit GDP growth per year for four years
Reducing the cost of doing business, maintaining fiscal discipline, and reducing government borrowing
And cut interest rates to encourage private companies.
How are the boxes?
Tori pipo To check facts Ghana’s discovery Ben conducting research and World Bank data to compare the monetary value of fiscal value and GDP under the terms of the de Mahama government led by the National Development Commission and the NPP led by Akufu.
From the table, the show says under the NDC government led by de Mahama, Ghana’s GDP growth averaged 15,836 with a growth rate of 3.959% each year.
The government led by Akufo is recording no cumulative growth of 21.784% which translates to an average of 5.446%.
One dis means that Ghana’s GDP is not growing higher under NPP than di NDC.
NPP Statement of Promise 2016;
To commit to establishing a robust and effective mechanism for good governance, we act with a responsible party and respect the rule of law and human rights.
Among the things that one undertakes to do in establishing the Office of the Special Prosecutor, by virtue of a law promulgated by Parliament, independent of the Executive Office,
The private prosecutor investigates and prosecutes specific categories of cases, allegations of corruption, and other criminal offenses. All dis to ensure transparency for goment.
NDC Statement of Promise 2012;
To stand up to fight against political corruption and immorality
For the Dee manifesto, the party promised to use the party’s 2008 Dee pledge to manage the 2012 political period.
For 2008, the NDCs promised to deepen political accountability, transparency, and disclosure of budgets, public spending, and actions.
For one statement with the launch of the NPP following the resignation of the Special Prosecutor on Monday, November 17, 2020, De Party said the corruption record under the leadership of the National Dialogue Conference was the worst.
De Flagberer of DNDC, John Mahama, at the launch of today’s statement on September 7 to the D University of Professional Studies, Accra condemning the NDC’s performance on corruption.
From this, we collect from the Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI) report that is released each year for the Transparency Index to give insight into the existence of corruption in public offices under a particular authority.
See Ghana’s fact-checking table from the Transparency Index report.
Although the CPI report for 2020 neva comot, the worst CPI result (de Mahama goment beta) under the di Mahama goment beta passed the best CPI result (the lowest perception of corruption) under di Akufo -Addo NPP goment.
Dis means one says de Mahama led by the National Defense Council government deals with corruption by the government of Akufo Addo NPP.
Now, the third element that makes Ghana’s elections exciting, let’s say it’s a year, Ghanaians choose between government that builds infrastructure or government that boosts the economy.
De Opposition Campaign NDC John Mahama dey based on 2012-2016 infrastructure achievement.
He has built first-class hospitals, roads like the Circular Exchange, and a new terminal for Ghana airport den things that more Ghanaians begin to appreciate after Diem’s vote out of power.
Meanwhile, Prez Akufo-Addo is also campaigning on a record of economic transformation, growth in agriculture through farming for food and jobs, cleaning up the banking sector, and dealing with the pandemic stuff of COVID-19.
If Ghanaians vote give the NDC, that means Diem prefers the physical infrastructure, but if you keep Prez Akufo-Addo, that means a Democrat says the government prefers to build the economy.
