Founder and leader of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), Madam Akua Donkor in a series of promises ahead of the December polls has pledged to give journalists in the country a car each should she be given the chance to be president.
According to her, should she win the election to become president in 2021; teachers and personnel of the Ghana Police Service would also benefit from the car package but the policemen would have to pay for the vehicles on installments.
Speaking on Angel FM, she added that journalists will also get their cars fueled for free by the state.
“This country will collapse should journalists decide not to do their work in just two days; so journalists are very important and that is why I have promised to give each of them a car when I become the president; I will also give cars to teachers but if I give cars to the policemen, they would have to pay for them on installments, but that of the journalists and teachers would be for free because their work is very difficult and essential”, she said.
Commenting on former president John Mahama’s selection of Prof Naana Agyemang as running mate she said, “It doesn’t matter that she was once the head of a university, Ghanaians will vote against them; she was there and endorsed Mahama’s decision to cancel the Teacher Trainees Allowances so she must not expect to get any votes from teachers.”
