Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom

The founder and the 2016 flagbearer of the Progressive People's Party (PPP), Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has called on government to give the private sector the needed push to accelerate development in the country.

The campaign follows a survey conducted by the National Service Personnel Association (NASPA) in the Central Region which revealed that young girls in surrounding communities of University of Cape Coast are engaged in “sex for money” and by this increasing the rate of teenage pregnancy and child prostitution in the Metropolis.

State facilities in Ghana’s ten regions are in bad shape and though government is poised to improve on infrastructural development, existing facilities continue to deteriorate.

Many have attributed the problem to the attitude of the Ghanaian and the poor maintenance culture of citizens.

Speaking to the pace at which state properties are destroyed particularly in the Central Region, the Cape Coast Metro Engineer, Felix Korankye Taylor has laid the blame at the door step of residents who he claims are repeatedly tempering with facilities or stealing them.
