Akuffo Addo has done very few to promote the living standards of Ghanaians since the National Democratic Congress left office in 2016.
This comes on the back of recent comments by President Akufo-Addo describing Mr. Mahama’s time in office as an unmitigated disaster, adding that his economic track record, from 2013 to 2016, was abysmal, he also described Mr Mahama as incompetent.
Nana Akuffo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) should rather call themselves incompetent because they have proved and explained incompetent to we the ordinary Ghanaians.
During the tenure of the NDC and John Mahama, Ghana witnessed economic growth coupled with manageable debt levels. The President has no moral right to boast of better economic management.
“Even when the President’s horrible management of the economy is exposing him, he will not listen. This is person who doesn’t pay attention to details. The President is always talking about COVID-19 as an excuse to squander money given him. He has a huge debt to cover, and he doesn’t have money to pay his debts. He doesn’t have anything else to run this country.”
According to President Akufo-Addo, under the tenure of office of John Mahama, the economic growth rate in 2016 stood at 3.4%, the lowest in two decades; with all other macroeconomic indicators pointing in the wrong direction.
The President stated that “I wonder whether this statement was made tongue in cheek by the former president. When you look at the record that this political leader, who can accuse our government of mismanagement, there are a few facts that when you put on the table to compare his performance and ours, it would tell you whether what I am offering the people is economic mismanagement.”
He continued, “I wonder what words should we describe his (Mahama) stewardship of Ghana. It is an unmitigated disaster, that’s what I would call him.”
But I disagrees, Akuffo Addo’s handling of the economy is rather the worst in the country, at least in the last four decades.
“I don’t know where he gets the ‘’ Vim”from to say that John Mahama cannot speak about the economy. This catastrophic management he has superintended cannot be the reason why President Mahama cannot speak about the economy. The economy Mr. Mahama left is much better than what we have now. This is the worst economic management we have had in the last 50 years, and it cannot be disputed”. So President Akuffo should apologize to His Excellency John Dramani Mahama for calling him incompetent.
