The Acting National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay, has admonished delegates to explain the new government policies and interventions to members at the grassroots.
That, he said, will enable them to take full advantage of those policies to improve upon their standards of living.
Mr. Blay said this when he addressed Party faithful at the NPP Rally in Cape Coast to climax the 25th Annual National Delegates Conference and express appreciation to the people of the Central Region for their massive support in the 2016 General Election.
He said the Government, led by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has begun fulfilling its campaign promises and will equitably share the national resources among the people.
He said the Party has competent and experienced men and women, who are capable of prudently managing the resources to ensure rapid economic growth and development.
Mr. Freddie Blay gave the assurance that the Government would provide the needed incentives and regulatory framework to enable the establishment of factories that will process local resources into finished products to create more jobs for the teeming unemployed youth.
The Minister of Gender, Children and Social Protection, Otiko Afisa Djaba, said although successive governments had implement poverty reduction programs such as the School Feeding Program, Capitation Grant, National Health Insurance Scheme and the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty, poverty still abounded in the country.
To reverse the trend, she said Government had decided to decentralise all social intervention programs and increase the number of beneficiary households in order to serve its purpose meaningfully.
This, according to her, will significantly reduce poverty and restore hope and dignity to Ghanaian as well as create wealth and prosperity.
The Central Regional Minister, Kwamina Duncan, thanked the people for voting massively for the Party, which culminated in the resounding victory in 2016.
He gave the assurance that the Government would reciprocate the kind gesture by providing their needs.
Mr. Duncan appealed to the rank and file of the Party to remain united and work assiduously to increase its electoral fortunes come the next general election in 2020.
