The flagbearer of the Progressive People's Party (PPP), Dr Papa Kwasi Nduom has blamed the inefficiency of successive governments on the electorate.

According to him, Ghanaians have failed to critically and objectively examine manifestos of political parties after they win elections.

Dr Nduom made the comment at the 2nd International Conference on Poverty Management (INCOPOMA) 2016 under the auspices of the Spiritan University at Ejisu in the Ashanti region.

The PPP flagbearer said the lack of objective examination and analysis of the various manifestos have contributed to the lack of real positive impact on the lives of the people.

"Looking at the manifestos of the various parties that have won elections to be in government, Ghana should not have been where we are today, but what do we see now? Millions are suffering in abject poverty in spite of the numerous juicy promises given" he lamented.

The renowned entrepreneur who was speaking on the theme 'The Reality and Myth of Poverty Reduction Strategies', argued that Ghana wealth would have been used to develop the country if the people had held governments to their manifesto promise.

"Poverty in Ghana is real, preventable and looking forward for efficient and selfless people to lead and take care of the problems confronting the nation, "he stressed.

Dr Nduom also mentioned the lack of proper decentralization in the country which has been the bane of improper local Government accountability and responsibility in the Ghana.

He promised a PPP government will strengthen the local government system to bridge the poverty gap in the country.
