Published

on

Mr. Percival Kofi Akpaloo the Presidential aspirant for Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), has revealed that he will give newborn babies Gh200 and also make University free for all.

Speaking in an interview on GhPage TV, Kofi Akpaloo disclosed that when voted into power as the President he will implement the child benefit policy where children below the ages of 18 will receive a monthly allowance of Ghc200.

“We[LPG] are going to do things differently from the way NPP and NDC has been handling this economy.

One major thing we’re going to introduce is the child benefit; every child below 18 years will receive a monthly allowance of Ghc200, and if you’re lucky to have twins then they will receive GHc300 each ” Mr Kofi said.

He went on to say that this initiative will go a long way to “stimulate the economy to generate demand activities so that whenever there is a production of goods people will have the funds to purchase”.

Mr Kofi Akpaloo was of the view that his ‘soon to be put into operation’ policy will eventually serve as a job creation opportunity for all to also enjoy life.

Asked what he will do differently from other political parties that will inform the decision of the electorates to give him their vote, Kofi Akpaloo again stated that his party aside from the Child benefits which focuses on children below 18 will also not leave the adults behind.

According to him, the LPG is going to give unemployment benefits to persons above the ages of 18. He said this package comes with a monthly allowance of Gh400.

He was quick to add that though Gh400 is not any money it’s better to survive on that than to have nothing and worst of it all be dependant on others.

Still, on how he will contribute to the development of Ghana’s economy, the LPG flagbearer indicated that he will as ‘President’ set up a $10billion job fund to cater for those who have great business ideas, thus they can access capital from that fund.

Furthermore, the presidential hopeful told the host Jibsam Quarcoo that these flagships programmes of his party will have a positive effect on the nation.

“We want to change the economy so that there will be money circulating in the system all the time..” He added on.

Ghana Election 2020: Rawlings Death: “Mahama Tried Hard To Silence Rawlings When He Was Alive” : Nana Konadu Agyemang Weeps

Published

on

Nana Akonadu Agyemang Rawlings, who is wife of Late Former President Jerry John Rawlings, has made an explosive statement in a press conference this afternoon, Monday 23rd November 2020, saying that, former President John Dramani Mahama tried so hard to silence Rawlingsin the affairs of NDC when he was alive.

Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, who is the Presidential Candidate for National Democratic Party (NDC), held her press conference today at Alisa Hotel.

In the statement of the NDP, they slammed the Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama for trying to use the death of Mr. Rawlings to get political sympathy to win votes in the coming general elections.

Reading on behalf of the party, the NDP General Secretary Alhaji Mohammed Frimpong who addressed the media said the NDC is being hypocritical in the wake of the demise of the late statesman.

He said “With what he did with the demise of former President Mills, he should not be allowed to do the same with the death of our beloved, former president Rawlings. And Ghanaians should not oblige to that. The hypocrisy of the NDC when Jerry John Rawlings was alive, [was such that] John Mahama desperately wanted to silence him and now that Rawlings is no more, Mahama finds it expedient to utilize his death to galvanize support for his weak base within the NDC rank and file and the country at large to salvage his 2020 campaign which is going nowhere.”

He added “Suddenly, the individuals within the NDC under the current leadership of John Mahama who publicly vilified Rawlings have rediscovered a new voice proclaiming themselves to the true adherent of his ideals and those who used foul languages against Rawlings are now hailing him.”
