Hon Ahmed Ibrahim, MP for Banda says the former NDC administration laid down a solid foundation for the economy to be utilized by the NPP and the president, Nana Akufo Addo confirmed so when he said he is about starting the 1 District – 1 factory, 1 Village -1 dam, free SHS policy and extension of the school feeding program.
Mr Ibrahim said the NPP would not be able to make this promise and assure of starting it if they did not inherit a better economy.
“Nana Addo couldn’t have done so if there was no money, he has confirmed and added to what Senior Minister Osafo Marfo said about economic fundamentals being strong”.
The law maker after the address in an interview with Top FM expressed disappointment in Nana Addo for lamenting at the parliament house during his first state of the nation address.
“He lamented so much before realizing that he was elected to rather fix and not to complain”, Mr Ahmed said after the address by Nana Addo.
They have realized all they were saying before they came into government were false because there is enough for them to use for their policies, he said.
On the improvement of the Agriculture sector, Mr Ahmed Ibrahim said the loan 125 million dollars the president says he will take from the Canadian government will indeed help the sector and parliament is only waiting for the agreement of the loan to be laid before the house and they will approve.
But was quick to add that “I don’t think that same money will be used for the 1 Village, 1 dam policy of theirs because all constituencies are to benefit from that loan.
Meanwhile, the former Deputy Finance Minister Ato Forson says they are ready to debate to bring out the true state of the nation left by the NDC government.
