- Former president Mahama says the NPP is failing to deliver on campaign promises
- He said when parties win political power they face reality as opposed to when they're in opposition
- He asked NDC members to forgive his administration for the party's loss at the 2016 elections
Ghana's former president, H.E. John Dramani Mahama, has stated that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) government administration is struggling to implement its many campaign promises now that it is in power.
According to Ghana's former president, it is easy to make promises when a party is still in opposition, but that when the party comes into political power it must face the realities of a situation.
Ghana's immediate former Head of State expressed that the then opposition New Patriotic Party's (NPP) campaign promises convinced Ghanaians to vote out the NDC government and brought his plans to develop Ghana to a halt.
“NPP promised the moon and has not even delivered the clouds…….when you come into government, ‘wob3te wo samia’ (you face reality) !!when you are outside you think that it is easy. Oh the money is there ,the money is there !!!!,” he said.
Former president Mahama was speaking at the National Democratic Congress's (NDC) most recent Unity Walk. The event saw party members walk a 16 kilometer route from Kpong to Somomya Lorry Park, the longest route yet since the NDC's Unity Walk program began.
Former president Mahama also asked that himself, his appointees, and party executives be forgiven for the crushing defeat the NDC experienced at the 2016 general elections. He also urged party members to build a strong and resilient NDC in order to ensure a return to political power come the 2020 general elections.
