The governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) has managed the economy better that the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP).

This is according to the Minister of Transport Fifi Kwetey. He made this assertion when addressed the media at a forum organised by the NDC and dubbed “setting the records straight”.

“From 2001 to 2008, the NPP accumulated a total debt stock 56.9billion cedis, taking it from 9.7billion cedis in 2008. NPP, therefore, had access to 4.3 times more loan financing than NDC 1 under Jerry Rawlings. In spite of this, the NDC 1 overshadows the NPP in virtually all critical development infrastructure.”

“NDC built 3 regional hospitals against zero by the non-performing NPP. NDC within that period can also boast of a couple of public universities against zero by the NPP,” he said.

He alleged that even though the NPP had a lot of proceeds from cocaine, they could not use it to transform the economy.

The NPP governed the country from 2001 to 2008.

The NPP since it went into opposition has often accused the John Mahama led NDC of not developing the country though it has enjoyed more revenue than any other government in the fourth republic.

But Fifi Kwetey said they (NDC) have invested in more projects than any other government. He mentioned this as one of the many reasons why the Ghanaian electorate should vote for them to continue what they have started.
