Naadu promises dirt-free Ghana in 100 days

By James Harry Obeng

 

MRS Naadu Mills, wife of Prof. John E. A, Mills, presidential candidate, of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), says the  NDC-led government will tackle the problem of sanitation in the country.

 

Promising that the first 100 days of her husband’s administration will see to the tackling of the filth drowning the country, especially in the capital cities, Mrs. Mills revealed: “as I speak to you, Prof. Mills has finalised negotiations with a company that will use an environmentally friendly technology to dissolve both liquid and solid waste so that we can live in a healthy society.”

 

Mrs. Mills made these pledges at the Salaga and Makola markets in Accra last Tuesday when she interacted with the traders on their problems.  She was accompanied by Mrs Lordina Mahama, wife of Mr John Mahama,  NDC presidential running mate and Member of Parliament for Bole Bamboi.

 

She said her husband’s policy to invest in Ghanaians upon assuming the reigns of governance would only yield dividends with a healthy workforce, saying “if Prof Mills is going to invest in people and build a better Ghana, he has to invest in healthy people, that is why getting rid of the filth that has engulfed the nation will be one of his key priorities.”

 

Mrs Mills said it was unfortunate that the country is currently ranked as the second country in West Africa with the worst progress in sanitation, making it more imperative a policy direction that priorities sanitation concerns.

 

She  had earlier interacted with market women at Dansoman and Ablekuma markets in the Ablekuma South Constituency.  Mrs Mills promised a better economy for the country should the NDC formed the government with her husband as the leader.

 

She explained that it was not because of laziness that most Ghanaians were currently experiencing hardships in their “pockets”, adding that the next NDC government would embark on a policy of ‘welfarism” that ensures equitable distribution of resources to abate hardships in the country significantly.

 

The campaign team also visited the Princess Marie Louis Children’s Hospital in Korle Wokon where Mrs Mills made presentations to the children on admission.
