President John Mahama has asked Ghanaians to consider the promises of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) as “cheap talk”.
According to him, the NPP was only interested in propagating deceit through uninformed criticism of the government’s performance, saying it lacked the capacity to deliver its unrealistic promises.
“Talk is cheap, and it is easier said than done,” he stated, at a mammoth rally at Kade, as part of his campaign tour of the region.
He said the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) was not perturbed about the propaganda of the opposition because Ghanaians were discerning, adding, “they are witnesses to the good performance of the government”.
“We are confident that Ghanaians have seen our good works and would not take in any deceit,” he said.
Touching on some of the propaganda and criticisms by the NPP, President Mahama described the claims that the National Health Insurance Scheme had collapsed as “exposed lies.”
“Available records, show that the scheme is in a very active state, benefiting thousands of Ghanaians.
“If the NHIS has collapsed, why are they the NPP MPs and leaders busily registering people onto the Scheme,” he asked.
From Kade, President Mahama moved to Asamankese where he interacted with a large crowd of NDC supporters, urging them to be vigilant and focus on the campaign.
