GOVERNMENT OF GHANA AND THE CREATION OF JOBS

SINCE WEEKS THERE ARE DISCUSSIONS IN THE MEDIA WHETHER THE GOVERNMENT CREATES JOBS AS THE GOVERNING PARTY HAS PROMISED IN ITS ELECTION MANIFESTO OR NOT.

IT IS ANNOYING: YOU WATCH A PROGRAMME IN A GHANAIAN TV STATION, ADVERTISEMENT BREAK, AND WHAT COMES? A CLIP FOR ANY ALCOHOLIC BITTER, WHETHER GINGER, HERBS, A MIXTURE OF BOTH, OR WHAT ELSE…, BUT SURELY IN A LOT OF ALCOHOL.

ONE YEAR GOVERNMENT OF NANA AKUFFO ADDO AND BAWUMIA – HOW SHOULD WE JUDGE THE PERFORMANCE?

THE GOVERNMENT OF PRESIDENT AKUFFO-ADDO AND VICE PRESIDENT BAWUMIA IS NOW ONE YEAR IN OFFICE. CAN WE BE CONTENT WITH THE PERFORMANCE OF THE GOVERNANCE OR NOT, AND WHAT COULD BE DONE BETTER?
I BELIEVE THAT GENERALLY WE CAN BE CONTENT WITH WHAT THE GOVERNMENT HAS STARTED AND ACHIEVED WITHIN THIS PERIOD. AT LEAST, THEY ACHIEVED MORE FOR THEIR COUNTRY THAT PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS ACHIEVED FOR THE UNITED STATES WITHIN THE SAME PERIOD.
