We’re better managers of the economy than NDC – Sammi Awuku

Managing Director of National Lotteries Authority’s (NLA), Sammi Awuku has stated that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) is a better manager of Ghana’s economy than the National Democratic Congress (NDC)

Speaking on a national TV, Thursday, Awuku indicated the NPP is capable of ensuring that all critical economic indicators point in a favourable direction.

“We are better managers of the economy. When it comes to the exchange rate we cannot be called incompetent.” He declared.

The former NPP National Youth Organizer also stated that since the Akufo-Addo administration assumed power in 2017, a lot of programs have been implemented to help the country’s youth economic well-being.

“What I saw in 2016 is different from what I see now in 2022. In 2016 the young people felt desolated, they felt disoriented , they felt dispirited and they felt disenchanted . Today what I see is, they see that some of their colleagues have gotten jobs , they are praying and pushing that it gets to their turn.

“Even though Nana Addo and his administration haven’t provided jobs for every young Ghanaians, nobody can also tell me he doesn’t know one person who hasn’t been employed under this administration.”

“So you can point to one person meaning that we have made progress however because of the backlog , if you had four hundred thousand people entering the job market every year calculate it form 2017 to even 2021 . The five years is giving 2million young people. 2 million young people absorbing them wont be easy.

“If you go to elsewhere, the government even guaranteed a loan for young people, if you go to India it similar, when you want to go into entrepreneurship. What the Akufo-Addo administration has started with with the 1D1F, we will start seeing results of it after three or four years.

“Why because at that time you will have a whole value chain of these entities, factories that will also help curb the rural urban migration.”
