Brigitte Dzogbenuku, the Presidential Candidate of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), has assured Ghanaians that her government will to give some of the executive powers to the people when voted into office.
The promise came at Nkwanta in the Nkwanta South Constituency of the Oti region when her team toured Volta and Oti regions to urge the people to give the PPP the mandate come December 7, 2020 when the country goes to the polls.
She said it is time to ensure that the people had more power to contribute effectively to the development and aspirations of the country adding that the executive power of the state is too much for the priceless and abundant resources the country possesses; a situation which leads to abuse of both the executive power and the resources at the detriment of the people.
She explained that, it is for this reason that the PPP believes that the people must be made to vote for their own Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chiefs Executives (MMDCEs) who are the custodians of executive power at the local level.
The PPP wants to ensure that the 2.5 percent District Assembly Common Fund allocation (DACF) be increased to 5 percent because it is inadequate to stimulate development at the local level when a portion of it is also allocated to parliamentarians. she lamented
According to her, issue of corruption will no longer be a problem as the PPP administration will ensure accountability and transparency in all facets of the governance system
Madam Dzogbenuku further called on citizen to vote massively for the PPP which is number 10 on the ballot stressing that the PPP stands for peace, hence “if the people of Ghana wants peace, PPP guarantees them peace and freedom to thrive in whatever endeavor they undertake.”
