NPP Wasted GH¢800m Taxpayers’ Money On NABCO But No Entrepreneurs Have Been Produced – NDC stalwart, Gabriella » GhBase•com™

Gabriella Tetteh who happens to be NDC’s stalwart has envisaged that Akufo Addo’s NPP has spent over ¢800m on the nation builder’s Corps (NABCO) yet no entrepreneurship progress was made after the initiative.

Giving her expectation on the 2022 budget statement, she said the only expectation is taxes and hardships on Ghanaians since the government is broke and heavily indebted.

Speaking on the “Good morning Africa” show on pan African TV today, she said the NDC used the ¢50m to support Ghanaian entrepreneurs in the pharmaceutical industry while a ban was also placed on the importation of some drugs to allow local entrepreneurs to grow. A strategy that could be employed by the NPP to reduce unemployment.

“Under the NDC, we expanded the Tema Port, supported businesses under the pharmaceutical industry with only ¢50m. We also made sure we reduced the importation of some foreign pharmaceutical products in an attempt to reduce the competition on the local businesses. But the NPP wasted over ¢800m on NABCO alone. This money could be used to create a lot of jobs under the private sector.”

She also reiterated that the incumbent NPP government doesn’t not know the tactics to put in place to generate revenue for Ghana.
