Reality exposing lies told by NPP; Ghanaians suffering more - Mahama
The Former President John Dramani Mahama has slammed the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) for worsening the plights of Ghanaians despite their promise to provide better economic opportunities.
The aspiring presidential candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) wondered why the NPP has failed in delivering on their major campaign promises. His administration he said told Ghanaians the economy was facing challenges and promised to provide Ghanaians better leadership.
However, the government has failed woefully and struggling to deliver on their promises. John Mahama made the comments while addressing delegates of the NDC) at Tatale in the Northern Region as part of his nationwide campaign tour to lead the NDC into the next presidential elections.
“You can do all the propaganda you like to win political power, when you come to government; the reality of the people’s life will expose you,” he said.
“Where are the factories, where are the dams, where is the $1 million per constituency. It is easier to make electoral promises than to fulfill them. Making promises is easy, fulfilling them is a problem. That is what NPP has taught us.
It is easier to give political lectures on the economy than to manage the economy,” he added. He further took his swipe at Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and said, one could deliver a lecture on economy but will not make them competent enough to manage the economy.
“Any economics lecturer can give lectures on the economy, but not every lecturer can manage the economy,” he said.
