President Akufo-Addo has described former President John Mahama as the worst-performing President in the past 30 years of the country’s history as the economy under his administration was the worst compared to any administration.
Former President John Dramani Mahama says his second coming is to rescue Ghana from the terrible performance of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his appointees.
“I think that Ghanaians are more discerning now . . . after what we’ve all gone through, any politician who comes dangling promises before you, you’ll look at him twice . . . or, if any politician comes to you and says, Try me’, you’ll turn and run away,” Mahama said during a meeting with party members in London.
Reacting to former President Mahama’s claim that he is on a rescue mission to save Ghanaians from a terrible performance of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his appointees, President Akufo-Addo on Kumasi-based Wontumi TV said the assertion of his predecessor is amusing as the records are there to show.
“That Mahama says my government is a failure, this man who presided over worst statistics in the economic history of our country . . . he signed the economy to 3.4 percent when we took over . . . it is worst performance since the last 30 years in Ghanaian history. If he says things like this, it does not worry me because our record and his record are there for everyone to see; there is no comparison between them,” he jabbed.
President Akufo-Addo insisted that records of performance will play significant role in the 2020 general elections as Ghanaians will have the opportunity to assess the records of his government and that of former President John Mahama.
“I am prepared to put my record on the line in each one of the sectors against record of John Mahama in any day,” President Akufo-Addo dared.
His Excellency President Akufo-Addo described the 2020 general election as a special one as Ghanaians will have to choose a President who has records to show unlike the previous elections where one contestant may not have any record to convince Ghanaians with.
He added that the 2020 elections will go beyond the usual manifestos of political parties as there are records to show to Ghanaians; reiterating that the record will determine whether the manifestos of the political parties, especially that of the NPP and NDC can be accomplished.
“It’s not just the manifestos this time. Of course, the manifestos have a role to play but in this case, we both have records and I think that is what will be the influence . . . Ghanaians will examine our works and judge by that,” he reiterated when he visited Wontumi TV.
He, however, charged Ghanaians who have not registered in the ongoing voter registration exercise to do so in the final phase as it is the only way they can select the leader of their choice.
