Source: Daily Graphic Ghana - The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) has welcomed the support of the flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, for the call to elect metropolitan, municipal and district chief executives (MMDCEs).
According to media reports, Nana Akufo-Addo is quoted to have said in United Kingdom that “The time has come to bring accountability to local government through competitive politics. Election of DCEs at the local level can no longer be delayed. This is going to give a great boost to local initiatives and self-reliance.”

“The PPP welcomes Nana Addo’s late jump on the bandwagon. The PPP has been at the forefront of this national crusade to amend the 1992 Constitution to make it possible for all MMDCEs to be elected by universal adult suffrage to bring accountability and development to the local level,” a PPP statement, signed by Mr Kofi Asamoah-Siaw, the party’s Policy Advisor, stated.

PPP representations

The statement said “the PPP has, together with other stakeholders, made representations on the matter to the Constitutional Review Implementation Committee, the Council of State, the Parliament of the Republic of Ghana and to the President, His Excellency John Mahama. As, it is the case in all matters, the decision by Nana Addo is better late than never.”

The PPP statement, therefore, wished Nana Akufo-Addo well in his endeavours and thanked him for his support in this crusade but the PPP declared “we expect that he will continue to support the PPP to bring this change to the people of Ghana when the PPP is given the mandate from January, 2017.”

According to the PPP, it is also aware that Nana Akufo-Addo has promised to appoint an Independent State Prosecutor to tackle corruption effectively.

“We wish to invite Nana Addo to give serious consideration to the other eight items on our 10 point agenda since the PPP has become a new source of inspiration for the NPP’s policy direction.

“We expect Nana Addo to support the policy of free and compulsory education from kindergarten to senior high school for every Ghanaian child so that we can give real hope and a guaranteed future through a truly comprehensive education policy such as the one being championed by the Progressive People’s Party,” it added.

Furthermore, the PPP statement encouraged all Ghanaians to support the PPP’s agenda and vote in the 2016 elections so that “together we can bring real transformation to our country.”
