Many Ghanaians, particularly some in the Diaspora, frequently assert that the NPP and the NDC are the same and are one political party. I don't believe it to be the case since individuals who claim that are misinterpreting the English phrase "the same."

First off, there is a significant distinction between an umbrella and an elephant since the National Democratic Congress' flag symbol is an umbrella and the New Patriotic Party's is an elephant. The NDC and the NPP are not equal, as this article shall demonstrate.

There is no place for any educated Ghanaian to claim that John Mahama and Akufo Addo are the same when it comes to leadership and development intelligence, considering that corruption is still one of the difficult issues affecting the vulnerable in African nations, including Ghana. After the beloved John Atta-Mills passed away, Mahama, who had been vice president, took over as president of Ghana.

The accomplishments of John Mahama in Ghana are listed below, and they were made just four years into his presidency and before the NDC government lost power in 2016.

I should give credit to Awake News, where I discovered this data. More importantly, we shouldn't overlook the fact that the John Mahama administration left numerous projects unfinished.

Ghanaians can assist me in remembering the accomplishments of the current president, Nana Akufo-Addo, as I am unable to recall anything other than "Free Education, which is already in crisis, tampering with the nation's history to fit his incompetent and tribal family, cutting sods for the beginning of projects than any president in Ghana's political history, yet you can't find those projects being built, accruing huge debt on the country without accountability, increasing and upgrading corruption.

The successes of Akufo Addo don't stop there; they also include a rise in crime in Ghana, an increase in unemployment, and the collapse of the economy amid currency depreciation. By separating the populace and selecting corrupt judges for the Supreme Court, he furthered tribalism and made the court one of Ghana's most corrupt and worthless institutions.

This made it simple for journalists and politicians to commit theft without being arrested and instead allowed them to continue working for the government.
