Ghanaians now live longer under the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) than they did during the Kufuor administration under the New Patriotic Party, Majority Leader Alban Bagbin has said.

Speaking at the NDC’s 2016 manifesto launch in Sunyani on Saturday September 17, the Nadowli-Kaleo legislator noted that because of the party’s better governance, the quality of life for the Ghanaian had improved to the extent that life expectancy had shot up from 58 years as it pertained under the NPP in 2008 to 64 years under the NDC government.

“John Mahama, as you all know has injected more vim and vitality into the implementation of the Better Ghana agenda and has visibly changed the lives of many Ghanaians and transformed the country. The result is that Ghana has the lead in West Africa as the upcoming country. Ghana is the second largest economy in West Africa after Nigeria, and the 12th largest in Africa. Ghana has the highest national income among its neighbours,” he told the gathering.

“Consequently, the quality of life of the people has improved tremendously, thus catapulting life expectancy of its citizens from 58 years in 2008 to 64 years in 2012. This means that Ghanaians now live longer and better lives than they did in 2008 when the elephant NPP party ended its reign.”
