MP for Ketu South Constituency, Fifi Kwetey, has lamented at the New Patriotic Party’s resolve to push for universal electricity coverage to all by 2030.
According to him, the Akufo-Addo led administration in just 4 years has increased electricity coverage by just 0.5 percent.
“We handed over to them a country that has seen an increase in electricity coverage from 52 percent to 83 percent and in just 4 years, they have been able to only increase electricity coverage by 0.5 percent, not even 1 percent, whereas we [NDC] were on cause to providing universal coverage by the end of 2020”
“They have come into office today and they had to push the universal electricity coverage to 2030 because they are moving at such a slow pace and there’s no way they will be able to extend electricity coverage like the way we [NDC] were doing,” he remarked.
Fifi Kwetey said this on Wednesday, November 20 when the NDC held a public forum in reaction to the 2020 Budget and Economic Policy in Accra.
Fifi Kwetey also indicated that the John Mahama led government had left behind water coverage that moved from a rate of 57 percent to 76 percent yet they [NPP] claim the NDC left an economic mess.
