The opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC, has mocked the government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, describing his first 100 days in office as a period of broken promises and insecurity.
The Minority Leader of Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu, made the submission in an interview with Joy FM, adding that the Akufo-Addo government was on a path to “failure and would soon flip flop on many of its promises.”
According to him, the promises made by government and payment to contractors were yet to be fulfilled.
“The government led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is on a path to failure and would soon flip flop on many of his campaign promises, contractors were told that they would be paid within 100 days and now it is a different thing today, practically impossible.
“You have a country with growing insecurity which is a betrayal of the country’s democracy, and Nana Addo Dankwa’s uncompromising partisan attitude and failure to bring to order, the disturbances and violent acts of vigilante groups like the Invincible Forces and Delta Forces, is a threat to constitutional rule if not properly managed,” he said.
The Minority Leader also condemned the government on the President’s directives to some public servants to proceed on leave and in some cases outright dismissal.
Haruna Iddrisu’s assessment is however contrary to that of the Vice President, Mahamadu Bawumia, who boasted that the Akufo-Addo’s government had fulfilled 103 of its campaign promises within its 100 days in office.
