Mahama asserts NDC better managed Ghana’s economy …but NPP disagrees

 Former Pres­ident John Dramani Mahama has said that the National Demo­cratic Congress (NDC) administration has been better managers of the Ghanaian economy than the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He indicated that the econo­my currently is in a state of near collapse due to the government’s mismanagement.

Poverty, he observed, has wors­ened due to extreme inflation and price volatility.

He made the assertion in a tweet on Thursday.

Mr Mahama who is the 2020 presidential candidate of the NDC said: “Back from a trip to the Savanna, Northern and Upper West Regions – and poverty has worsened due to extreme inflation and price volatility.

“The economy is in a near state of collapse; clearly, the NDC has been a better manager of the economy!”

Earlier Mr Mahama said offi­cials of the Akufo-Addo admin­istration were resigning because the government was heading for disaster.

“Some members of the Akufo-Addo government have realised their boat is heading for di­saster. It must be a relief for those deserting the ship, but it’s so late.

“It’s almost pointless. They’ll try hard not to be part of the mess we are in, but let’s not forget the parts they all played.”

However, the Director of Communications for the NPP, Mr Richard Ahiagbah, has replied former President John Dramani Mahama on his comment.

Mr Ahiagbah said the NDC could not be better than the NPP because when in office, the cur­rent main opposition party could not solve the power challenges that saddled the people and other problems which have now been solved by the Akufo-Addo administration.

Mr Ahiagbah who also re­plied in a tweet said; “Clearly, the NDC cannot be better managers of the economy because the NDC could not solve dumsor, manage the buoyant banking sector they inherited or manage a small guinea fowl rearing project, etc.” —3news.com
