Former president, John Dramani Mahama, has referred to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as a party that doesn’t tell lies.
He added that the party never makes promises it cannot fulfill.
John Mahama further stated that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) promised Ghanaians that they would provide each constituency with $1 million.
He went on to say that the NDC government knew it wasn’t feasible.
This, he explained, was because the NDC was in power during the 2016 campaign season.
According to him, "Ghanaians are getting disappointed with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) because of the fake promises they continue to make...It is clearly evident that after the NPP took power, most people are getting disappointed because the things they promised to do are not what Ghanaians are seeing”.
The ex-president made these statement when addressing NDC party faithfuls during the Unity Walk held at Tarkwa in the Western region.
The event took place on Saturday 25th November 2017.
This is the fourth in a series of walks after similar events were held in Accra, Tamale and Cape Coast.
The flagbearer of the NPP in the 2016 elections, Nana Akufo-Addo, is reported to have made a number of promises during the election season.
He stated that the NPP had plans of establishing a factory in each of the 216 districts in the country.
Akufo-Addo also mentioned an intention to ensure that every village in the northern part of the country was provided with a dam.
Another promise made was with respect to the implementation of a Free Senior High School (SHS) programme.
The Free SHS policy was however started in September 2017.
