Ghana’s largest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has promised to provide streetlights in all cities, towns and villages to ensure security and boost the night economy in the West African state.

Launching the party’s manifesto in Accra, capital of Ghana, last night, its Presidential Candidate, John Dramani Mahama assured Ghanaians of providing streetlights in all cities, towns and villages as part of its universal street lighting project.

John Mahama also stressed that the iniative was adopted as a strategic step to encourage Ghanaians, who engage in trading and other businesses at night, to feel safe and secured; adding that night businesses are key to triggering growth to the national economic development drive.

This, he said, was part of the Energy Sector Levy (ESLA) project to progressively light every village in the country through the ‘Light Up’ Ghana initiative.
