He therefore promised the people of Gbintri in the Nalerigu-Gambaga constituency that an NPP government would develop the limestone deposits in the area into cement to create employment for the people.
Speaking to members of the Konkomba Young Elephants (KOYE) at Gbintri in the Nalerigu-Gambaga constituency, he said the teacher trainees and student nurses’ allowances would be reinstated when the NPP assumes office in 2017.
Addressing the chiefs and people of Gbintri, Dr. Bawumia said despite being in opposition for some years, the NPP would ensure a continuity of its good works which had been exemplified under the President Kufuor administration.
A mammoth crowd made up of chiefs and opinion leaders, who welcomed the presidential candidate of the NPP, Nana Akufo-Addo’s running mate, expressed their profound gratitude to the NPP for the developmental projects they received in the erstwhile Kufuor-led administration.
According to Dr. Bawumia, a renowned economist, who spoke to DAILY GUIDE, the rousing welcome by the chiefs and people of the area was an indication that Ghanaians are yearning for the NPP to salvage them from the economic mismanagement of the country by John Mahama’s National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration.
The over three decades of perennial water crisis in Gbintri and its surrounding communities will soon come to an end. This is because the running mate to the NPP’s presidential candidate has promised to drill two boreholes for the community.
Dr. Bawumia told the gathering that the enormous pro-poor initiatives such as the National Health Insurance Scheme, Free Maternal Care, National Youth Employment Programme, School Feeding Programme, Capitation Grants, among others, which were initiated under the NPP government, were meant to minimize the suffering of the masses, especially the rural poor population, but “sadly the NDC government has collapsed all the initiatives, bringing Ghana to her knees.”
The regent of Gbintri, Nandana Musah, commended the NPP for the recognition and appointment of Konkombas into key positions in the party and appealed to the party to continue to appoint Konkombas because they are competent.
