Mahama Mocks Akuffo Addo, Says Prez Can’t Differentiate Between ‘Promise’ And ‘Vision’
Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress in a live Facebook session has mocked President Akuffo Addo, saying his successor cannot differentiate between what “promises” are and what “visions” are.
He said after the incumbent president has failed to fulfil his “lofty” promises to Ghanaians, he has made a U-turn, calling them “visions” for the country.
The Facebook live session on Thursday June 18, spoke extensively on government’s fight against the Covid-19 pandemic, accusing it of poorly handling public education on the safety and preventive measures against the disease.
The National Democratic Congress in a recent address scored the Akuffo-Addo-led government 14 per cent in the fulfilment of its promises.
Most of these promises in 2016, the NDC claims, have been labelled as “visions” by the president.
“Ghanaians understood perfectly well what promises were made to them in 2016,” Mr Mahama, who also served as Vice President before becoming President, said, adding that Mr Akufo-Addo now picks and chooses what promises are and what visions are.
He said the Ghanaian voter will determine how those “promises” or “visions” have been fulfilled on December 7, 2020.
“Ghanaians will take into the polling booth what their understanding and perception of what they believe constitute the level of fulfilment of the promises that you made to them before the last elections,” Mr Mahama stated.
