Former President John Dramani Mahama has been told to provide solutions to the government instead of attacking incessantly.
According to the Chairman of the Parliament’s Select Committee on Finance and former Deputy Finance Minister, Kweku Kwarteng, Mr Mahama has risen from the lowest ranks in politics to the highest and should be in a position to offer solutions to government; rather he’s always heard lamenting and attacking the government.
“Somebody who has had long service in public service; he has been a Vice President, has been a President, if people are unhappy with their lives they are not going to leave him off. It is to this extent that I find his statement worrying because the statement he made feeds into this traditional belief that political figures will say anything to get into political power or those of us in power will say anything to remain in power. I think that must stop”.
According to him, the former President could have presented his alternative programmes for discussion.
“Wouldn’t it have been refreshing to see the former president isolate the specific actions and inactions of the current government he had issues with and then put his alternative on the table in a less acrimonious and in a more conciliatory way? Is it not possible to do that?”, he told the host of the Sunrise Morning Show, Alfred Ocansey on the 3FM’s 92.7.
