Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has listed ten scams the NPP government has bequeathed the state six years into their administration.
During the party’s delivery of the ‘True State of the Nation Address’ Monday, March 20, 2023, Mr. Asiedu Nketia said there were numerous promises President Akufo-Addo and his government made over the years without bringing them to fruition.

“There will be no haircuts” was a scam;
“The promise to build 88 district hospitals within one year was a scam;
“The Agenda 111 hospital project was a scam;
“The promise to abolish road tolls was a scam;
“The promise to convert toll booths into ultramodern public toilets was a scam;

Ladies and gentlemen, he concluded that, “another deliberate falsehood peddled by the President in his infamous address, was the claim that his government has constructed more NCA licensed fibre optic cables than any other government in the Fourth Republic.”
