Extent of Damage to the Economy Requires Experienced Person As Next President – Mahama
An aspiring Presidential candidate of the largest opposition party the National Democratic Congress (NDC) John Dramani Mahama says the extent of damage to the economy by Akufo Addo -Bawumia led government requires an experienced person as next President to recover the economy.
According to Mr. Mahama the task ahead is not about experiment but an experienced hand.
“Runaway from anyone who ask you to experiment him. It is not about experiment.The extent of harm done to Ghana it is not about experiment it is about experience and by God’s grace we have the experience. We didn’t buy it in a store we didn’t learn it in school, it is God who gave us the opportunity to gather that experience”.
John Dramani Mahama said when addressing delegates from Okere, Akuapem North, and Akuapem South constituencies at Akropong to begin his three-day campaign tour of the region ahead of the party’s Presidential election bin May this year.
Meanwhile Mr. Mahama has chastised Akufo Addo led government for making lofty and unrealistic promises to deceive Ghanaians that he was going to transform the country within a year and half but has been badly exposed with the mess created to the economy and unfulfilled promises.
He said the NDC will not go on that tangent of making lofty promises but the party’s track records will speak for itself.
“Wherever I go the chiefs, the youth and everybody has been testifying that it was during the time of NDC that they were connected to the national grid. The people credit the NDC for their Water , hospitals, schools, road among others that they had all these during the tenure if NDC. NDC we don’t discriminate that this constituency did not vote for us so we won’t give them development.We distribute development evenly. We the NDC will not give Ghanaians lofty promises because Ghanaians have seen what we have done and what we can do”
John Dramani Mahama stated in what appears to be subtle response to threat by Bryan Acheampong that the ruling NPP will never hand over power to NDC saying man cannot change the will of God.
“It is God who installs a leader so man cannot change the will of God. S don’t mind what people are saying because it is the will of God. As a christian believer I have Faith in God whenever I kneel to pray God speaks to me that this is the time of NDC that the power has been given to us. No amount of tantrums can change the will of God. So we should continue to pray and trust that whatever God has said can come to pass. We only need to work hard because the hardwork at the Constituency levels will help secure the victory”.
