The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has accused the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) of raising awareness of the need in the country.
The ruling party’s communications director, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, believes the country is in good shape and President Nana Akufo-Addo is working hard to increase productivity and improve livelihoods.
Speaking at a press conference at the party’s headquarters in Accra on Friday, August 20, the NPP’s communications director said:
“We’re not scared of John Mahama, we know he can’t manage the economy, so we can’t let him poison your mind because when you sit somewhere and they keep telling you, ‘Oh, it’s bad , Ghana is tough. there is corruption, Ghana is tough ”. Then sometimes you think it’s true. So we have to talk back. “
Speaking to journalists on Friday about the recently launched Agenda 111, Mr Asamoa added that no project from the previous government had been abandoned.
He also stated that the gains made by the Akufo-Addo-led government, including the creation of new regions, are substantial and have an impact on life.
This comes barely a week after Vice President Bawumia agreed that the government “has largely kept its promise to alleviate the suffering of Ghanaians, although we still have a lot to do in that direction”.
The NPP communications director accused the NDC and former President Mahama of deliberately downplaying these achievements by raising public awareness of need.
He sees these comments as attempts by Mr Mahama and the NDC to earn political points ahead of the 2024 general election.
“We are not afraid of John Mahama. We know he can’t give you good education, we know he can’t give you good health, he will break NHIA down. We know he can’t manage the economy. Interest rates will go up, inflation will go up, growth will go down and we will go back to the IMF, ”he said.
