Nana Akufo-Addo has described President John Mahama as uncaring, claiming he is “impervious” to the hardship Ghanaians go through.
Addressing party supporters on Wednesday at Kramoase in the Atwima Kwanwoma constituency of the Ashanti Region, the New Patriotic Party presidential Nominee, Akufo-Addo, further slammed the president for claiming “all is moving on smoothly in Ghana.”
“The President claims all is moving on smoothly in Ghana, the reason why he is seeking a renewal of his mandate in office. President Mahama, clearly, does not feel your pain and suffering. He is impervious to the hardships Ghanaians are going through on a daily basis, in their efforts to make ends meet. I doubt he is living in Ghana with us, because if he was, he wouldn’t be making such comments.”
He urged Ghanaians not to lose hope as the NPP is coming into office to improve the living conditions of Ghanaians.
“We have an opportunity this year to rid our nation of the suffering and hardship the Ghanaian is going through under the leadership of President Mahama. When we vote in a competent government in December, I assure you that Ghana will be put on the path of progress and prosperity once again. That is the task before us in Ghana in this year’s election,” he said.
He added that the ‘1-District-1-Factory’ and ‘1-Village-1-Dam’ policies, the diversification of the country’s agriculture, the effective implementation of the Free SHS policy, the setting up of an Infrastructure for Poverty Eradication Programme (IPEP), among others are some of the policies that will improve the lives of Ghanaians.
Nana Akufo-Addo told the party supporters gathered that “to repose your confidence in me, believing that all I have just said to you, I am coming to implement them”.
He continued: “What I am telling you is nothing but the truth. I have too much respect for Ghanaians to lie to them and say things I know I cannot do.”
