‘NDC will be fair in giving loans to traders, women’ – Ofosu Ampofo

The National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, has assured that the next NDC government will be fair in granting loans to women and small scale traders to expand their businesses.

He said the NDC will prioritize job creation when voted to power, adding that apart from the Free National Apprenticeship programme, the Big Push that will expand infrastructure in the country, they will help expand businesses in the private sector to create employment for the youth of the country.

Touching on the Big Push agenda, which was announced in the NDC manifesto, Mr Ampofo said the policy would help invest US$10billion into the Ghanaian economy to provide jobs and improve infrastructure.

The NDC Chairman made this known at New Edubiase in the Ashanti region when the NDC Running Mate, Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang interacted with the people as part of her 6-day tour of the region.

In her speech, Professor Opoku-Agyemang stressed the need for peace ahead of the December elections.

She said NDC was a party which embraced everybody and called on party supporters in New Edubiase to work hard to bring the party back to power to continue with the development started under the previous NDC government.

Mr Abdul Salam Adams, the NDC parliamentary candidate for New Edubiase, urged the supporters to work hard in their campaigns to reclaim the seat which was lost to the NPP in 2016.

He said the next NDC government will continue with projects they initiated under the Mills/Mahama government and create wealth for all through the numerous job creation policies in the NDC manifesto.
