Former President John Dramani Mahama has replied comments made by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo during the just ended NPP National Delegates Conference in Kumasi.
Addressing delegates at Heroes Park in Kumasi over the weekend, President Akufo-Addo stated that “all the things that we have done in government are things we thought about while in opposition, what is the one policy that the NDC and their leader John Mahama have thought about in five years that they have been in opposition. There is not one policy, the answer is zero.”
In a quick response to President Akufo-Addo, Former President Mahama noted that he thinks the President must take his responsibilities seriously and focus on working to change the circumstances of Ghanaians, rather than the rabble-rousing skits he serves the nation.
He stated that “to answer his rhetorical question on policy, if only he took a moment, in the comfort of his chartered jet, to read the People’s manifesto, he would have at least learnt about the ‘Big Push’ (an accelerated infrastructure plan for Ghana), ‘Free Primary Health Care Plan’, the ‘1 million jobs plan’, ‘Ghana FIRST’ (Framework for Industrial Revitalisation, Support and Transformation) and several other well-thought-through and costed policies.”
The Former President also indicated his willingness to provide President Akufo-Addo with an autographed copy of the 2020 manifesto of the NDC.
According to Mr. Mahama, with the kind of speech the President gave yesterday, he has carved his niche as a good campaigner, but unfortunately a poor leader as Ghanaians have found out at great cost.
