NPP brought Ghana backwards-Trade Minister



The Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr EkowSpio Garbrah has accused the New Patriotic Party (NPP) of collapsing more than 300 big factories built by Ghana’s first president, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

According to the minister, the overthrow of Dr. Nkrumah by the NPP and its collaborators such as the CIA, stopped the progress of Ghana.

Speaking at the campaign launch of the Nanton MP in Zogu, the Trade minister said the December 7 elections are about tangible projects such as roads, health facilities and educational infrastructure doted across the country. “We are talking about the industrialization of Ghana and someone belonging to a party with the history of collapsing industries is talking about “one district, one dam”, Dr Gabrah fumed.

Ghana, he said, will have been an industrialized country today, if the NPP had not overthrown Dr Nkrumah in 1966 and brought down manufacturing industries.

The former education minister made a passionate appeal to the electorate in the country not to make a mistake of bringing back ‘disorder’ to the country. Under Dr Kwame Nkrumah regime, the country was manufacturing TV and radio sets, pharmaceuticals and glass, among others, he pointed out.

“Today the NPP wants Ghanaians to believe that they can make the country better when in eight years under former president Kufour, they were not able turn the country into better one,” Dr Garbrah noted.

He also attacked the leader of the NPP who he said, believes in “all die be die” and urged Ghanaians to allow the NPP to die.
