A Deputy Minister of Information and Media Relations, Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed, has stated that 80 per cent of the promises made to Ghanaians by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in 2008 was achieved at the end of the party’s first tenure in 2012.

He is therefore confident that the NDC will meet most of its 2012 electioneering period promises by the end of 2016 and “the people of this country will renew the mandate of His Excellency President John Dramani Mahama.”

Murtala Mohammed was speaking on Tv3’s News @10 on Thursday.

“I think we are on track,” he stated, citing that government has already earmarked lands for the first 50 community day schools to begin.

He told TV3’s Kenneth Osei Ampofo that government’s promises of Free School Uniforms, expansion of the School Feeding Programme and Rural Electrification, among others, were fulfilled by 2012.

He, however, admitted that government is facing challenges; hence the Fitch Rating of B for Ghana comes as no surprise.

“But this government will at the end of the day come out victorious.”
