Majority: 60 E-blocks finished, 15 more set for completion


Alexander Affenyo-Markin, the Majority Leader and Member of Parliament (MP) for the Effutu constituency, highlighted the progress made by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) under President Akufo-Addo regarding the construction of community-day school buildings (E-blocks). According to him, the NPP has completed 60 out of the 101 planned E-blocks, surpassing the 29 completed under the previous administration.


He emphasized the government’s commitment to continuity and announced that 15 E-blocks have been earmarked for the resumption of construction. Additionally, he mentioned that a total of 747 structures have been completed across the country to enhance senior high school infrastructure.


Affenyo-Markin revealed that enrollment in the Free Senior High School (FSHS) program reached 1.4 million vulnerable households as of December 2023. He highlighted a 75 percent increase in enrollment, with over 800,000 students benefiting initially, rising to 1.4 million.


The Majority Leader underscored the significant reduction in electricity tariffs implemented by the NPP government, despite economic challenges. He compared this to the stance of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) while in power, suggesting that the NPP manages the economy and energy sector better.


He noted that the NPP fulfilled promises such as reducing electricity tariffs and implementing the free senior high school policy, which the NDC had dismissed as political rhetoric. Affenyo-Markin mentioned tariff reductions of 17 to 20 percent for households and up to 25 percent for corporates and mining companies.


He highlighted the NPP’s actions to address concerns raised by Ghanaians regarding high utility tariffs, contrasting it with the NDC’s stance during their tenure. Affenyo-Markin emphasized the tangible results achieved by the NPP government in reducing tariffs, which were initially labeled as mere political promises by the opposition.


The Majority Leader reiterated the NPP’s commitment to effective governance and economic management, emphasizing their track record of delivering on promises and improving the lives of Ghanaians. He emphasized the importance of continuity in government policies and projects for national development.


Affenyo-Markin highlighted the positive impact of the NPP’s policies on education and electricity tariffs, asserting that they have contributed to socioeconomic development and improved livelihoods across the country. He urged Ghanaians to recognize and support the government’s efforts towards nation-building and prosperity.


He concluded by reaffirming the NPP’s dedication to serving the interests of all Ghanaians and called for unity and cooperation in advancing the nation’s progress. Affenyo-Markin expressed confidence in the government’s ability to overcome challenges and deliver on its mandate to create a better future for all citizens.
