Former President John Dramani Mahama has stressed that considering the abysmal performance of the Akufo-Addo-led administration in the last two years, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has a brighter chance of winning the 2020 elections.

“We have a good chance to win the 2020 elections because of the method in which the NPP came into power, they used a lot of sweet words, they promised heaven and I don’t think they thought through the promises because some of the promises were weird and absurd,” he noted.
The former President made the statement when he addressed delegates of the party in the Bolgatanga East Constituency of the Upper East Region as part of his nationwide campaign tour to lead the party in the 2020 general election.

“When we were in power, small and medium industries were setup in the districts, but One-District-One-Factory sounds nice to the ear, but not only that, One-Village-One-Dam and we ask what kind of dam? The reality comes, they dig dugouts, we dug dugouts across most districts of the country.

“The worst one is $1m per each constituency and Bolgatanga East was expecting $2m but for 2017 and 2018 no constituency has received such monies, my worry is that, it shakes the faith of Ghanaians in our democracy, it makes them believe that politicians are just lairs and will not fulfill their promises.

“The NPP government has abandoned the Bolgatanga-Bawku-Pulmakon Road because it believes the contractors in charge of the project are aligned with the National Democratic Congress, the roads we were working on whilst I was President have come to a standstill.

“It is because the government is reluctant to pay the contractors, they believe that they are NDC contractors,  many of the big construction companies have laid off workers, it’s not only in banks, look at those who are working on the Bolgatanga-Bawku road, are they working? They’ve laid all the workers off,” former President Mahama bemoaned.
