Top Two Surprises During The NDC's Tenure

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been in power in Ghana on several occasions, each time bringing its unique policies and approach to governance. During its various tenures, there have been many surprises. In this article, we will focus on the top two surprises during the NDC's tenure.

The discovery of oil

One of the biggest surprises during the NDC's tenure was the discovery of oil in commercial quantities in Ghana. In 2007, oil was discovered in the Jubilee Field, which is located off the coast of Ghana. This discovery was a game-changer for Ghana's economy, as it opened up a new revenue stream that has contributed significantly to the country's growth and development. The NDC government at the time worked hard to ensure that the benefits of the oil discovery were shared with all Ghanaians, and not just a few select individuals or companies.

The introduction of the Single Spine Salary Structure

In 2010, the NDC government introduced the Single Spine Salary Structure (SSSS) for public sector workers. The SSSS was designed to ensure that public sector workers received fair and equitable pay for the work they did. Prior to the implementation of the SSSS, public sector workers were paid according to a confusing and convoluted system that did not always reflect their skills or experience. The introduction of the SSSS was a welcome surprise for public sector workers, as it brought clarity and transparency to the payment system.

 In conclusion, the NDC's tenure in government has been marked by many surprises, both positive and negative. The four surprises highlighted in this article were significant achievements for the NDC government, as they had a positive impact on the lives of millions of Ghanaians. While there were undoubtedly challenges along the way, the NDC's commitment to improving the lives of Ghanaians through innovative policies and programs will undoubtedly be remembered for years to come.
