Member of Parliament (MP) for Bantama Constituency in Ashanti Region, Daniel Okyem Aboagye, says the achievements of the government have put the fear in the opposition, National Democratic Party (NDC).

Mr Aboagye claimed the NDC underestimated the competence of the New Patriotic Party administration led by President Nana Akufo-Addo, to deliver every campaign promise made prior to the 2016 election and have been surprised at the performance.

“Talk is cheap, the NDC is trying to manipulate Ghanaians into believing that we are not doing anything but the figures are showing for themselves or can the figures manufacture itself,” he quizzed.

“The NDC are panicking because we said it and we are delivering. We are not saying we’ve perfectly completed all our policy initiatives but we have done very well as compared to them,” he said in an interview on UTV monitored by

The MP stated, the government has been commended by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for its steady effort to establish sustainable development in the country.

“When we went to the IMF meeting in Washington DC they were asking us to tell the Ghana story how we could implement so many policies in three years of governance. We restored the nurses’ allowance, Free SHS, banking sector, energy sector, reduction in taxes [and] inflation rate while having major issues to address,” he recounted.

 “We understand that Ghanaians are complaining but they shouldn’t forget we are in a better place as a country than before,” Mr Aboagye added.
