Deputy Chief of Staff at the Presidency and the governing New Patriotic Party Parliamentary Candidate for the Bantama constituency, Francis Asenso-Boakye has stated that, in 2016 when then candidate Nana Akufo-Addo promised to implement his flagship programmes, such as the Free SHS, One District One Factory, among others, the NDC and John Mahama said they he could not fulfil them, but today, they all bear witness to the fulfilment of these interventions that have brought great relief to all Ghanaians in light of that, if they gave Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP 88% of total votes in 2016 in his constituency, he believes it is fair to say that Nana Akufp-Addo deserves 95% of votes in 2020 for fulfilling all those promises made in 2016.
Speaking at a ceremony in Kokoso, Kumasi, yesterday Thursday 13th August 2020, the Parliamentary candidate, added that, the importance of good roads extends to all aspects of development of the communities as it contributes to the provision of jobs, access to healthcare and education services, among others. adding that, had the NPP won in 2008, the road would have been long completed but maintained that, it was neglected by the erstwhile John Mahama led administration.
To him, today, they all bear witness to the visionary leadership of the President Akufo-Addo that has led the implementation of Free SHS policy, Planting for Food and Jobs, One District, One Factory; and the setting up of a vehicle assembling plant by automobile giant VW in Ghana, among others.
Meanwhile, Hon. Kwasi Amoako Atta who was special guest of honour at the ceremony said, the development of the entire Ashanti region, especially Kumasi and its environs, is very dear to the heart of President Akufo-Addo and his government.
