Ghanaians in the diaspora have once again reaffirmed their confidence in the Akufo-Addo's government.
Sammy Awuku, NPP National Organizer and Emmanuel Attafuah-Danso, the Director of International Affairs of the party visited the Finland branch and Ghanaian community in Helsinki from 8th-9th October 2019.
The people were full of appreciation to the government for delivering on its promises.
They were particularly happy about the Free SHS programme and restoration of the Teachers and Nursing Training allowances, stressing these policies have ameliorated their lives of Ghanaians.
Sammy Awuku also assured the Ghanaian community of government's commitment to fulfill all its manifesto promises.
He recounted several achievements by President Akufo-Addo in less than three years of his administration saying the NPP government has about "805 projects at various stages of completion with the view of eradicating the double track system in SHS within two years, Planting for Food and Jobs which has made Ghana a net exporter of plantain to neighbouring West African countries, 350 dams which are at various stages of completion in fulfilment of the promise of 1 village 1 Dam, not forgetting the revamping of the railway system in the country".
He added that Ghanaians will see the fruiton of the 1 District 1 Factory policy in few years.
He further pledged that the President and his government are fully committed to curbing corruption in Ghana.
He also urged the people to be patient with the Electoral Commission while it rolls out appropriate modalities for the implementation of ROPAA to enable Ghanaians abroad fully participate in the electoral system as well as help deepen the country's democracy.
The National Officers of the NPP used the opportunity to provide orientation for the branch executives in Finland in a separate meeting and thanked them for their financial contribution in securing victory for the party in the 2016 elections.
Mr. Osei Amoah, Chairman of the Finland branch, was delighted to have hosted the NPP delegation and asked for more engagements in the offing.
He however shared a few concerns with the party's National Organizer and the delegation, calling for a reduction in import duties.
