Mahama slams Akufo-Addo's government; calls it 'super-incompetent' – Mahama
Immediate past President of the Republic of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama has taken a serious swipe the Akufo-Addo-led NPP government describing it as ‘super-incompetent’ government unable to solve the country’s challenges.
The former President who was addressing members of the NDC in Wa in the Upper West region on Saturday said even though the NPP appears incompetent in government, the umbrella family will have to work hard to win the 2020 elections.
“You do not win an election on the weakness of your opponent. You win an election because the electorate have confidence in you. And so even though NPP is proving super incompetent, we cannot sit and relax and say because they are super incompetent we are going to win the next election. So we are going to work hard to win.”
“I have been watching social media lately, and there’s something that has come, and I think it cures everything. It’s the Obinim sticker, the President and his government need an Obinim sticker. If it really works, then I think they need the sticker. So I am saying that we cannot depend on their incompetence, we need to work hard to gain the support of the electorate,” Mahama said.
Mr. Mahama said the ruling New Patriotic Party has failed and could be felt in the “unbearable hardship” being experienced by Ghanaians.
“People are feeling more hardship than ever today,” the immediate past president told the NDC gathering after the walk.
He added: “People said any idiot can borrow and that there is money in Ghana and that we can develop Ghana without borrowing but in one year and three months we have borrowed close to 30 billion Ghana cedis.”
