Dr. Mustapha Abdul Hamid, chief executive officer (CEO) of the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), maintains that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration has rescued Ghana.
While acknowledging the difficulties faced by the economy, he maintains that the present administration has significantly advanced the nation beyond its initial state.
“We have, in fact, rescued this nation. Undoubtedly, the economy is facing significant challenges; however, I assure you, Emefa, that we have progressed this nation beyond its initial state.
We are approaching an election, and I consistently advise individuals to… When people call me, that is why I’ve been doing this academic activity for the past year: to reassure them that there is time for debate and that we will debate the issues during the election year. They will hear from me, and I will provide an explanation for the nation’s rescue that we have performed.
More than four hundred thousand young people who, in the absence of our policy, would be squandering on the streets of our nation are now enrolled in universities and pursuing respectable careers. The governance of a nation is contingent upon its citizens. Human resources are the reason countries such as Singapore, Japan, and others have made progress despite lacking mineral resources. Therefore, how can it be considered rescuing when a president has successfully rescued the human resources of our nation while one hundred thousand of them will eventually beg and live meaningless lives on the streets for several years before being rescued and placed on a path to prosperity and progress for themselves and their families? “That constitutes rescue; we shall discuss it,” he stated on Joy News, based in Accra.
It is recalled that Mustapha Hamid, who was the spokesperson for New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidate Nan Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, lamented the level of corruption in the country prior to the 2016 elections.
He urged the nation to be rescued, specifying that this could only be accomplished if the citizens of the time voted out of the government.
“It’s extremely tragic. This nation is in critical straits; Wallahi, we must extricate this nation from critical straits! Mr. Hamid stated, “The presidency has been so vilified, soiled, and depraved that I can say in all sincerity, as a Ghanaian, that I am incredibly disheartened.”
