Blame NDC for the fuel hike-Odike.
Akwesi Addai Odike, the founder and flagbearer of the United Progressive Party (UPP) in the 2016 general elections has called on Ghanaians to blame the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the current fuel hikes.
“Yes the fuel prices are high but I want to tell all Ghanaians that NDC must be blamed for that……they brought something called Automatic Adjustment Formula that automatically regulates the fuel price at the world market so NPP can’t be blamed for the fuel hikes because government has no hand in the determination of fuel prices…… it is the formula that works,” he explained.
Mr Addai made the assertion in an interview with Obrumankoma Fm morning show host, Kojo Ata Kakrah Abrowah, on the State of the Nation’s address presented by President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo on Thursday February 8, 2018.
Touching on the address, he condemned all Presidents from 1992 for always reading their campaign messages instead of reading the true states of the nation.
“My brother, from the year 1992, no President has told Ghanaians the true State of the nation. They all turn the State of the nation to campaigning ……they often say I will do this, I’ll do that; those are promises but not the states of the Nation…….the true state of the nation is purposely for President to tell the citizenry what you have been able to achieve and even more importantly those you could not achieve but what we have witnessed as a country over the years have been promises and those achieved only but they all fail to tell what they couldn’t achieve” he explained.
NANA ADDO’S ONE YEAR
On president Nana Akufo-Addo’s performance in the past one year, the former United Front Party (UFP) leader commended the President for stabilizing the economy saying “we are fortunate that Nana Addo won the power because if NDC had been still in power, there would have been a civil war in the country…. the economy is stable now but I can tell you for the fact that measures put in place by the man (President Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo), Ghanaians must all help him with prayers in order for him to achieve the vision….we are on the right path I must say”.
