Re-evaluate 40-year national development plan - CPP to NDPC

Aug. 4, 2015, 6:52 a.m.

The Convention People’s Party (CPP) has asked the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC) to re-evaluate the 40-year National Developmental Policy framework to ensure continuity and stability in governance.

According to the party’s Chairperson, Samia Yaba Nkrumah, the plan must be re-evaluated because it will be difficult for a political party in opposition, that finds a governing policy wrong, to continue the work of the previous government when it attains power.

Many analysts, including the Central Regional Secretary of the Council of Labour, Mr. Samuel Kweku Doughan have calleed for the institution of a National Development Plan and Economic Structural Policy for the country.

He said the trend where every government worked according to its own manifesto, neglecting the previous government’s efforts irrespective of their importance was doing the country a disservice, hence the need for the plan.
