Nana Akufo-Addo has stated emphatically that former President John Dramani Mahama has nothing good to offer Ghanaians. The President urged all Ghanaians not to believe the promises being made by the NDC flagbearer.
Ghana’s much-awaited December 7 election is just two weeks away and political parties are on tour. The President made his statement in an address to the businessmen in Kokompe in Greater Accra on November 24. It was n the first day in a three-day tour by the President of the Greater Accra Region.
Akufo-Addo stated that the record during the tenure of Mahama is nothing to write home about, hence his 2016 defeat.
Having presided over the work economic statistics in recent history, the President wondered what John Mahama’s motivation was for seeking the office of President of the Republic of Ghana.
“I know of someone going about on a promising spree, that if he comes, he would do this and that, but the fact of the matter is he has been in power before, and what actually did he achieve? Nothing”, he said.
President Akufo-Addo continued, “We have experienced his stewardship before, and it didn’t meet the expectations of Ghanaians. So, he (Mahama) should stop lying to Ghanaians, for us to continue with our developmental agenda for the country!”
To the business owners, artisans, traders of Kokompe, the President recounted the promises he made to the Ghanaian people and offered an update on the status of these pledged.
“I have come, this morning, to ask you if I have reneged on my promises to you. If I have disappointed you or if I came to lie to you. Since I have fulfilled most of my pledges to you, that means I was honest with you. I have lived up to expectations, so give me four more years to serve you better,” he added.
