”The Ahwoi brothers have abused the socialist doctrine and looted our nation’s coffers, all the while inflicting on our dear nation destructive policies at the onset of the Fourth Republic. Thus it is repulsive to see Kwamena Ahwoi continuing to spew his illogical arguments and pronouncements at a time when a more competent party is trying to rescue the nation from the Mahama looters” a statement said.
Kwamena Ahwoi was quoted recently as saying “the largest opposition party has no track record of policies that have long-term benefits for the development of the country and cannot be entrusted with the mandate again to govern the country.”
But the NPP claims that only the NPP administration saw the birth of policies and programs such as NHIS, NYEP, School Feeding Program, Free Maternal Care, Metro Mass Transit, Capitation Grant, Procurement Act, and a host of others designed to rein in corruption and set the nation on a long-term growth path.
Kwamena Ahwoi was again criticized by the NPP for his notion that young people perform better in government than their older counterparts. In the statement sent to NewsGhana from the party’s Public Relations office in the U.S.A, ”Although Ghana has some of the brightest young people in the world, those who have featured in NDC administrations have been disastrous for our nation based on their abysmal track record. They have proved that they lack the requisite experience to understand the ramifications of their actions, behaviors, and the policies they pursue. Moreover, having mostly originated from poverty, they have therefore used their positions in office to amass wealth to last them a lifetime, while the rest of the nation wallows in poverty.”
