An Airport In Upper East Is Unnecessary; Have Priorities – Lecturer Chides NDC

Published

on


A Senior Lecturer at the Department of Economics at the University of Ghana Dr. Ebo Turkson has urged the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to go on the grounds and seek the priorities of the people of Upper East instead of giving them a ‘needless’ airport.

The NDC during their manifesto launch said, “We will construct a domestic airport in the Upper East region,” adding “the land was secured when I (John Mahama) was President and so we will continue with it.”

Reacting to this, Dr Turkson advised the NDC to go to the people of Upper East and they’ll realise that what they need is not an airport. He further urged them to tell Ghanaians how they’re going to restore the economy post Covid-19.

“I don’t think an airport in the Upper East is necessary. The people have a lot of actual needs I don’t think an airport there is one of them. Let us prioritise and create jobs, that is key. There are things that are more critical for the economy than airports. When you go and ask the people there they will tell you it is the least of their priorities and I will urge the NDC to forget about that,” he said.

“The NDC will have to let Ghanaians know the specific policy they’ll use in recovering the economy beyond Covid. This is not to the NDC alone, but to the NPP as well. To be very honest with the NDC, they need to let us know what they’ll do to recover this economy when we survive Covid and they’re the next government in power. There are people who work their entire lives in the informal sector, they go on pension and there’s nothing for them,” he added.

Why Only 8 Days? – NDC Questions Duration Of EC Voter Exhibition

Published

on


The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has slammed the Electoral Commission (EC) over what its describes as short duration for the exhibition of the new voters’ register.

According to the party’s Director of Elections, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, duration is woefully inadequate for such an important exercise which forms part of preparation for this year’s elections.

“The exhibition of the voters register is a critical aspect of our electoral process. It is through the exhibition exercise that citizens who register get the opportunity to confirm that their names and other details are duly captured on the voters roll such that they will not be disenfranchised on voting days.

“In view of the importance of the exercise, the exhibition duration in that past being between 11 to 21 days.

“In 2012 the exhibition was eleven days. Even in 2016 where only a limited registration exercise was conducted in preparation for that election the duration for the exhibition exercise was 21 good days.

“Unfortunately, with the 2020 registration exercise that was characterized by various anomalies, violence and chaos and also involving close to 17 million prospective voters the EC rather strangely announced an 8-day exhibition exercise.”

Mr. Afriyie Ankrah spoke at press conference in Accra on Monday, September 21.
