Former President John Mahama has reiterated that the hardship that has befallen Ghanaians under the Akufo-Addo-led administration is enough evidence to return the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to power.
According to him, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government had disappointed Ghanaians with all the hardships currently going on in the country.
“We are all aware of the hardships we are going through in the reign of the NPP, but maybe some of you might not be going through it but majority of Ghanaians are going through it and they have seen the leadership style of the NPP compared to that of the NDC and they can make their own judgment,” former President Mahama lamented.
Addressing party supporters at Kasoa, in the Awutu Senya East municipality as part of his thank you tour of the Central Region, the former president indicated that God gave the NPP power for Ghanaians to have a feel of the NPP’s leadership style compared to that of the NDC.
“God wanted Ghanaians to have a feel of how the NPP leadership will look like compared to that of the NDC so that they can make their own judgment, during my four- year tenure as President, Kasoa benefited from projects such as polyclinic, an interchange, two modern schools, a bus terminal among others but the NPP under President Akufo-Addo have failed Ghanaians, they have not done a single project to benefit people of the municipality.
“I am optimistic in 2020 the National Democratic Congress will win power from the New Patriotic Party, I urge the government not to sell off the Komenda Sugar Factory before they hand over power, it is unacceptable to sell the factory since we can get expertise and technology to make it work,” former President Mahama stressed.
He advised the government to pursue the $23 million loan from the Indian Exim Bank for phase two of the project, which was still available.
“The loan from the Indian Exim Bank is still available, all the government needs to do is to take the money and implement the second phase of the project and once they do that, the factory will be running,” former President Mahama said.
