Government’s initiatives are not slogans- Bawumia

Vice President Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has stated that government’s initiatives, were not slogans but policies implemented to benefit Ghanaians.

He said the programmes, such as the One District One Factory (1D1F), Planting for Food and Jobs and Free Senior High School, were all policies put in place to protect the vulnerable and the poor in the deprived communities.

Dr Bawumia was addressing the Ghana-EU Political Dialogue on the theme: “Ghana and EU partners for the future,” held in Accra on Wednesday.
He said government in three years had passed the Right to Information Bill into law, Company’s Act, Office of the Special Prosecutor and also increased financial resources and logistics to institutions fighting corruption, including the Commission for Human Rights and Administrative Justice and Economic and Organised Crime Office.

He said the Ghana Police Service had also been resourced significantly in terms of logistics to help fight crime and make life better for the citizenry.
Dr Bawumia said government had put in place pillars that would grow the Country such as modernizing the system as well as an all-inclusive government that is the key to sustainability.

Government’s introduction of the digital economy, he said, was yielding results in the fight against corruption, citing that corruption at the port had been curbed because the system had now become paperless.

It had curbed corruption since its introduction at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority, Passport’s office, National Health Insurance Scheme, Hospital and even at the Court whereby the E-Justice system was preventing missing dockets as well as the distribution of cases automated to prevent litigants from choosing which judge to sit on their cases.

Dr Bawumia said government would continue its fight against corruption in spite of what had been achieved, adding that government can specifically point at what it had done in the fight.

The Vice President noted that what the current government had done concerning corruption had not been done by any government for the past 30 to 40 years.

He said the battle against corruption was one that everyone must help to fight whether donor partners or citizens.

Alhaji Bawumia gave the European Union (EU) the assurance that Ghana would stick to its budget before and during the upcoming general elections.
The Vice President said government had already budgeted for various projects, which were on course and would ensure there was no budget overrun.
