Presidential Candidate for the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama says he has a track record of honoring his promises to Ghanaians.
“Between 2013 and 2016, under my administration, we borrowed a little above ¢54 billion. But all over the country, you will see what we did with that amount of money,” he said.
“Akufo-Addo said we should compare track records. Now ask him; Today, Ghana’s debts are ¢257 billion. In four years, he has borrowed more than ¢140 billion. So, the simple question Ghanaians should ask is what has he (President Akufo-Addo) done with the money?” NDC Flagbearer quizzed.
He added that his leadership as the next President of Ghana will not make campaign promises he cannot deliver, accusing the Akufo-Addo government of failing to honor his many promises for which Ghanaians gave him their mandate in 2016.
“Our major opponent (NPP) are good at promises but poor at delivering. For them, their policy is that; say anything that the people will believe and vote for you.
“Political power is the most important thing to them. And when you get the power, whether you fulfill the promises or not; it doesn’t matter,” Mr. Mahama said.
Paying a courtesy call on the Paramount Chief and the people of Sogakope in the South Tongu District of the Volta Region on Monday, former President John Dramani Mahama said that the Akufo-Addo government has failed to even provide water and electricity to many communities especially those in the rural areas of the country.
He further accused the Akufo-Addo government of abandoning all the water projects started under his previous administration but expressed confidence that the NDC will win power again in the 2020 general election to continue all the abandoned projects he started.
