Former President John Dramani Mahama has accused President Akufo-administration Addo’s of lacking economic ideas.
All of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-pledges Addo’s to Ghanaians before assuming office have not been fulfilled, according to Mr Mahama.
“A government bereft of ideas has resorted to incarcerating critical voices, name-calling citizens, and unfair categorization of the labor force and huge numbers of unemployed youth as lazy and underserving,” the 2020 presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) said in a presentation titled “Ghana at Crossroad” on Monday May 2. Worst of all, the administration has been manipulating the narrative with frantic yells and phony critical analyses packed with dubious comparisons and plain lies.
“On the economic front, Nana AKufo Addo and the NPP promised to transform Ghana in 18 months, growing our economy at double-digit rates, reducing borrowing, ensuring fiscal discipline, lowering the cost of living, lowering taxes, and protecting the public purse.” They also vowed to shift Ghana’s focus from taxation to production.
” In reality, none of these goals have been met. Instead, Ghanaians have suffered terrible suffering and deprivation as a direct result of the government’s economic mismanagement, which lacks the humility to accept responsibility and the capacity to properly identify the core causes of the problems that have brought us here.”
Meanwhile, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has stated that the coronavirus outbreak has disrupted his administration’s economic accomplishments.
