Former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has observed that Ghana’s four-year term for every government is not enough for the needed investment in developing the country.
He indicates that , unlike other countries where governments have ample time to roll out their ideas and ensure seamless development across board, the same cannot be said about Ghana.
“We have a four-year term like they have in America and not as they have in other countries where there are five terms so there is very little you can do in terms of infrastructure, we will do our best.
We will Invest in the health sector, invest in Education, Invest in the economic infrastructure but all this must be geared towards creating opportunities, especially for young people to be able to realize their full potential and be able to find jobs in the economy. I think that’s what we will be looking at,” he said in an interview on Voice of America.
The leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2020 election said another focus of a new NDC government will be its focus on strengthening public institutions in the country and intensify the fight against corruption.
He reiterated his calls for the review of the 1992 constitution. He believes that after 26 years of using the constitution, it will be right that some tweaking is done to help build the country
