With barely six months to the general elections in December, political leaders who intend to contest for the presidency have begun making promises to the electorate but none has so far outdoored a manifesto.
In one of her streaks of promises, the founder and leader of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), Madam Akua Donkor has said every journalist in the country would be given a car to aid them in their “very essential duties” should she win the election to become president in 2021; teachers and personnel of the Ghana Police Service would also benefit from the car package but the policemen would have to pay for the vehicles on installments.
Journalists would also have their cars fueled for free by the state in the period that she would be president, she said in an interview with Kumasi-based Angel
Akua Donkor revealed she was disappointed in the President Akufo-Addo for spending a lot of state resources on 300 MMT buses when she believes journalists need vehicles most.
The GFP flagbearer also promised to drop the cedi as a national currency and make the British pound Ghana’s currency.
According to her, the inception of the Ghanaian Cedi dropped Ghana’s international commercial value, arguing that bringing in the pounds will help match up the Ghanaian economy to that of Britain.
Adding more promises Akua Donkor said that her party will give devoted farmers money to invest in their farming activities.
