Former President John Dramani Mahama has expressed his worry about the current state of Ghana’s economy under the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), describing it as retrogressive.
During his two-day campaign tour in the Upper East Region, Mr. Mahama, who is contesting the upcoming National Democratic Congress (NDC) presidential primaries, stated that the NDC administration had handed over the Ghanaian economy to the NPP in good shape in 2017. However, in less than seven years in office, the NPP has brought the country to a worse state.
According to the former president, the NPP’s handling of the country is like a driver using a reverse gear instead of a forward gear to reach their destination. He made these comments in the Nabdam constituency.
Mr. Mahama noted that because the NPP has terribly managed the country, the people of Ghana are calling on the NDC to take back power and put the nation in proper shape. He said, “The people of Ghana are asking you, the NDC, to come back and take over the affairs of this country and put things back in order.”
On the first day of his campaign tour, Mr. Mahama visited seven constituencies on the eastern zone, including Nabdam, Zenbilla, Binduri, Bawku Central, Pasiga, Guru, and Tempane constituencies. All the constituency chairmen, including the Upper East Regional Chairman, Alhaji Mumuni Bonnaba, have pledged their support for Mr. Mahama.
The former president and flagbearer hopeful for the NDC in the 2024 general election is being contested by former Finance Minister Dr. Kwabena Duffuor and former Mayor of Kumasi Kojo Bonsu.
