Nana Addo Is More Credible Than Mahama – Dr. Mustapha Hamid



The Minister for Inner Cities and Zongo Development, Dr. Mustapha Hamid believes President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has more credibility than the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama.

According to him, comparing the two candidates, there is a clear daylight between the two candidates in terms of integrity and credibility.

Speaking at a press briefing in Accra on Monday, September 14, 2020, the former minister of information said Ghana needs a visionary leader like President Akufo-Addo who can properly manage the affairs of Ghana’s economy and not John Mahama who sought bailout from the IMF.

‘’It takes bold, decisive and visionary leadership to turn around the fortunes of a country whose economy was in a ditch. It bears remembering that this NPP government came into office at a time when another government had thrown its hands up in despair and run to the IMF for a bail out and for what it called “policy credibility.”

“The first task of any government should be to establish credibility in itself and in its ability to manage the affairs of the country. It is a massive dent on the sovereignty of a country, if its government looks for credibility from external sources.’’

‘’ Indeed, this country had so lost its sense of credibility, that it had to import plantain to feed its people. It is the responsibility of governments to create the enabling environment for farmers to work to feed a nation.”

“The visionary and far sighted leadership of Akufo-Addo through the planting for food and jobs programme, has turned Ghana around from a net importer of food to a net exporter of food. Presently, Ghana exports the following food items to other ECOWAS countries- cashew, plantain, yam, cassava, maize, banana, pineapple, soya beans, coffee, coconuts, palm oil, shea butter and palm oil.’’
