Mr. Kwabena Appiah Ampofo, MD for State Housing Company, stated that next year’s election was not going to be an easy battle, and urged all to come on board to campaign as though we were in opposition, not only to retain power but also to protect the continuity of policies such as NABCO, Free SHS, NHIS, 1D1F, the restoration of Nurses and Teacher trainee allowances, Planting for food and Jobs and the strong state of the economy.
“Election 2020 is a virgin battle and so we should not forget where we came from in 2016. We should put in all efforts to campaign and maintain power in 2020”; Nana Appiah charged the Ladies.
