President Akufo Addo in a virtual meeting has directed communicators of the ruling New Patriotic Party to drum home the government’s achievements and records in the last three and half years ahead of the December polls.
The meeting, held via Zoom on Sunday, 12 July 2020 from the Presidential Villa where he is self-isolating over fears of Covid-19 was to enlighten the 2020 Campaign Communications Advisory Team for this year’s elections.
President Akufo Addo said “we need to set before the Ghanaian people clearly, the situation we inherited on the 7 of January 2017”.
Adding, “It is critical, because, without that reference, it is difficult to measure the quality of the achievement.”
“You have the records: dumsor, high rate of inflation, low rates of growth, widespread unemployment, a certain level of demoralisation in the country; and within three years, this very bleak economic narrative has been transformed”, he told the communicators.
He further urged the team to throw more light on government’s fight against the novel Coronavirus.
“I think there is a need to continue stressing the need for respecting the Covid-19 protocols. We are in government and it is very important that, that aspect of our concern about the need for our people to be safe comes out positively in everything we say. People have to take the protocols seriously.”
