AKUFO-ADDO’S AGENDA 111 GIVES OPPOSITION NDC SLEEPLESS NIGHTS
President Akufo-Addo readies himself to cut the sod for the commencement of 111 hospital projects, and Ghanaians cannot conceal their exhilaration.
Members of the opposition National Democratic Congress are in town with their usual bromides and invidious posturing, saying the Akufo-Addo administration is building castles in the air.
When they are told that the projects are being started with funds from GIIF, then they come up with the claim that John Mahama created that fund.
As absurd as their position is, one can easily sense a glimmer of uneasiness on their part knowing that the fruitful outcome of this decision to build hospitals 111 across the country would not only debilitate their party but keep them on the sidelines of opposition for another four years or so.
The NDC inherited funds procured by former President John Agyekum Kufuor for the construction of at least ten hospitals across the country.
President Mills of blessed memory commenced the construction of the hospitals and left. Mahama continued and could not even finish one of those hospitals, yet they captured them in their discredited Green Book as achievements of the incompetent one.
Those inherited projects have become the fulcrum around which the NDC’s communications revolve. With the Agenda 111 in place, the much talked about Mahama’s hospitals get paled into insignificance.
The whole of Mahama’s achievements would be in comatose state when these hospitals are constructed. They will destabilize the opposition party and that explains their strenuous efforts to make Ghanaians believe they will not be built.
Members of the NDC are praying fervently for these projects to fail so that they would use same as a springboard to jump back into office. They will fail because the hospitals will be built.
