NPP

1. The NPP administration in their eight (8) years in office never constructed one single Regional Hospital ….. but four (4) Regional Hospitals in Accra, Kumasi, Wa, and Bolgatanga are being constructed .

2. The NPP administration in their eight (8) years in office never upgraded one single airport to the International status …… but both the Tamale and Kumasi airports are being upgraded to the International status by the NDC government, adding up to the only existing Kotoka International Airport since time in memorial. Again, there is ongoing construction of new airport at Ho in the Volta region

3. The NPP in their eight (8) years in office never established one (1) single SHS ……. but the NDC government is currently establishing 123 SHSs; some already commissioned, others yet to be commissioned by H.E John Dramani Mahama, whiles the rest are at various stages of completion

4. The NPP government in their eight (8) years in office never established one (1) single public university …….. but the NDC government has established the University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS) at Ho in the Volta region, and the University of Energy and Natural Resources at Sunyani in the Brong Ahafo region. These two (2) public universities had already admitted students. Again, another university is being established at Somanya in the Eastern region

5. The NPP in their eight (8) years in office never completed one (1) single housing unit …… but the NDC government has completed those started by the NPP, initiated and completed new numerous ones with the rest at various stages of completion

6. The NPP administration in their eight (8) years in office never completed one (1) single Power Generation Plant ….. but the NDC government has brought in new plants and expanded the already existing ones. These include, the Karpower plant, Ameri, TTP, Asogli, Kpone power plant and others. This is the reason why we no longer experience the problematic dumsor

7. Come to think of the marvelous investments and  unprecedented infrastructural projects and social amenities the NDC government is undertaking in the health, education, roads, transportation, commercial, telecommunication, housing, power and energy, water and other sectors of the economy
