Former President of Ghana John Dramani Mahama has responded to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s calls for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to point to a single policy he introduced that has changed the life of Ghanaians.
“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,” the President said while addressing party faithful at the just ended National Delegates Conference.
But in a post shared on Facebook to respond to the President, John Dramani Mahama pointed out that time has exposed the incompetence of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
“I think the President must take his responsibilities seriously and focus on working to change the circumstances of our people, rather than the rabble-rousing skits he serves the nation,” he said.
Adding 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”.
He indicated that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has been exposed as a good campaigner but a bad leader; an attribute Ghanaians have cme to realize at a great cost.
With his speech of yesterday, he has carved his niche as a good campaigner, but unfortunately a poor leader as Ghanaians have found out at great cost.”
