NPP gives thanks A year on

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) is expected to hold a thanks-giving ceremony at the Accra International Conference Centre today, Thursday, 7 December 2017 to commemorate a year of the party’s victory in the 2016 polls.

The NPP’s presidential candidate in the 2016 general elections, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, secured 53.85 per cent of the valid votes cast to become Ghana’s fifth president under the fourth Republic, beating his closest rival, then-incumbent John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress.

The NPP promised Free SHS, a factory per district, jobs, restoration of allowances for teachers and nurses in training, $1 million per constituency, a dam per farming village in the three regions up north, and the setting up of a Zongo Development Fund.
