Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko, a leading member of the New Patriotic Party says Ghanaians have a choice to give Akufo-Addo four more years to continue developing Ghana or vote for John Mahama.
Gabby’s comments come on the back of NDC’s promise to legalize commercial bike popularly known as Okada if voted into power.
The NPP on the other hand has promised to make Ghana a hub for automobile production in West Africa and even promised to give people the chance to use their own vehicles for commercial purposes.
Gabby posted on Twitter that the NPP government led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is determined to provide the environment conducive for the establishment of growth of industries in the country.
He, therefore, advised Ghanaians to choose the candidate whose promises will develop the country.
“Yes, today, you can pick up a brand-new VW Polo, assembled in Ghana for less than GHS60,000! This is the Ghana Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP are building. It is your choice to give the NPP another four years or to vote for the Okada manifesto of John Mahama and his NDC”, he posted on Twitter.
In July this year, Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta told Parliament that the government plans to make Ghana an automobile hub in Africa.
To this end, the government has set up the Automobile Industry Development Centre to coordinate licensing of vehicle assemblers and manufacturers and monitor their compliance with industry regulations.
Volkswagen Group has started assembling cars in Ghana following a partial government ban on imports of used cars that is part of policy measures to turn the country into an automotive hub for West Africa’s 380 million people.
