Former president John Dramani Mahama has ridiculed President Akufo-Addo and the NPP for failing to stay true to the words they told Ghanaians while in opposition.
Mr Mahama during his ‘thank you tour’ in the Eastern region noted how then candidate Akufo-Addo and Dr Mahamudu Bawumia had always taken him on and criticised him at the least chance.
He said despite telling them to wait till they have a chance at the Presidency before criticising him, they failed to listen and are now seeing the realities of leading a country.
John Mahama said: “I told them you have not been President before so you think it is an easy job. I told them and they didn’t understand me but today, with their own two eyes, they have seen what I was talking about.
“I’ve recently chanced upon a video, where they said ‘We don’t need to borrow to fix the roads. We just have to put toll gates on the roads and we will have enough money to fix all the roads.’ But as I speak, all the roads have been left in deplorable states. Look at the Koforidua roads.”
“They said ‘by the time we finish our first term in government, no village or town in Ghana will have water or toilet problem’. Today, look at the kind of water some citizens are drinking. That is why we said talk is cheap,” he added.
