NDPC Commissioners resign


All the Commissioners of the National Development Planning Commission (NDPC), including its Chair, Professor Kwesi Botchwey, have resigned from their post.

This is to enable President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to appoint new members who believe in his vision to help him steer the affairs of the state.

The Commissioners, led by Prof Botchwey, presented their resignation letters to the President at the seat of government, the Flag Staff House, on Tuesday September 26.President Akufo-Addo, receiving the resignation letter and a copy of the 40-year development plan presented to him said: “Let me express my sincere appreciation for the collective determination you have made. Without the compassion of law, I accept the resignation to allow the new king, new law to [play out].

“It is a high mark of high patriotism and I am grateful for it. Thank you and may God bless us all and our homeland Ghana, make us great and strong.”

Touching on the plan, he said: “We must figure out together with all the major stakeholders how we can achieve this. We all agree we must build a Ghana beyond aid. One thing effective we must not and cannot fail is, we need to seek out those who are not yet on and bring them on board, and we need to have people to champion the difference aspects of the plan, in particular the key mile-stone.

“We must figure how we sustain the interest of key constituents, especially the youth who will be at the helm of affairs in the not too distant future.

“The plan presents my government and subsequent governments a daunting task not so much the implementation, but to stay on track and ensure that we have the desired outcome.”
