A Senior Lecturer at the University of Ghana Political Science Department, Dr. Isaac Owusu Mensah has cautioned government to work in creating employment for the youth as promised during the 2016 electioneering campaign if it wants to hold on to power.
To him the popularity of which majority of Ghanaians based on in voting for the NPP is declining therefore they must work on it. He said this in an interview with Kwabena Obeng Akrofi on Ark in the Morning when commenting on the survey his department (Political Science at the University of Ghana) conducted with 5000 respondents interviewed in 250 electoral areas across the country stating that a total of 52.7% of Ghanaians will still vote for the Akufo-Addo led government whiles 33.1% said they would vote for the opposition National Democratic Congress NDC.
The survey also showed a 62% approval rating for the current NPP administration which has been heavily criticized in its first year by the biggest opposition party.
According to Dr. Mensah the biggest problem in the country now is poverty adding that the poverty level in the country will reduce should government create more jobs. He further commended the ruling government for winning the fight against illegal mining and introducing the free SHS policy.
