The Ministry of Trade and Industry headed by Mr John Alan Kwadwo Kyeremateng has been the talk of town lately over hikes in food and other commodity prices.
The Ministry of Trade and Industry is Mandated to regulate prices and determine the input and out puts when it comes to import and Exports, they partner with the Ghana Standards Authority and the Food and Drugs Authority to ensure reliable goods and services are being traded.
From The Month of January till May, Prices of Goods have skyrocketed marginally, though ful prices have been blamed its clear that even in the capital of Ghana where little fuel is needed to transport such goods the prices are higher than in other parts of the country. Elections are drawing close and the Minister for trade together with MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, Vice President Dr. Bawumia have all laced their boots to contest in the NPPs flagbearership race, each person needs significant amount of money to run in the election and as a result, its most likely that they will use tools in their control including their offices to generate enough money for campaign. Many are with the opinion that Alan previously resigning from the party will have effects on his candidature. What if the trade minister is behind the sudden hikes in prices of commodities, what if every sanitary pad a lady buys he has Ghc1 in it, what if every soap you buy he has Ghc0.50 in it, what if every bag of cement you buy he has Ghc10 on it? that alone may be enough to generate money for an election.
The race is on and the party is done sith its branch, constituency and Regional Elections, the National Elections are ahead and after the National, Parliamentary elections will begin, after Parliamentary elections, we'll have the election of flagbearers.
The NDC after Registering New members will also begin their elections at the branch level before proceeding to constituency, regional and National respectively.
