Ghana, a developing country with great natural prospects is wallowing in backward poverty and economic gloom over the years after the reign of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, the first President and founding father of the nation.
Successive governments have tried in various ways to drive the developmental agenda of the nation to success.
This 4th Republican era has seen successive governments drive their electoral agenda on various manifestoes and promises. Whether these promises have been helpful to the nation is another issue altogether, as promises have been broken successively, and manifestoes unachieved throughout the forth Republican era.
Most of the advanced economies have well-thought-through development plan with timelines aimed at driving their developments in a certain direction.
The same is not said in the case of Ghana.
It is in line with this that the (suspended) National youth Organizer of the convention People’s Party, Ernesto Yeboah made it known to Newslinegh in an exclusive interview that, the CPP, which is the party of the founder of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah intends to implement fully the seven (7) year Development Plan of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, which was truncated after his overthrow.
It would be recalled that, the first President of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah undertook numerous development projects which have been the lifeline of the country till date.
It would also be recalled that, the first President initiated the seven (7) year development plan, aimed at putting Ghana as the pivot of development in Africa.
This plan, which analysts believe is the best for the peculiar case of Ghana, has been put aside by successive governments, and instead replaced it with piece meal manifestoes and promises which have not helped the country.
He said Ghana doesn’t need the piece meal approach at solving our problems. Ghana needs a comprehensive tailored development plan that would propel the country to its desired developmental destiny.
A new CPP government will therefore implement the seven year development plan of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.
He also advised every Ghanaian to uphold and defend the peace being enjoyed, to further enhance the democratic credentials of the country.
