- NDC's flagbearer for the 2020 polls says he will “work hard” to provide jobs for the youth and reduce the high cost of living in the country
- According to John Mahama, the NPP told tall tales, with lofty rhetoric, about the prospects for our economy and now Ghanaians are suffering
- He noted that the rising poverty levels and hardship in the country is causing massive agitation
Former president John Dramani Mahama has outlined three key things he will do for Ghanaians when he comes back into power.
The NDC leader says the country has retrogressed since the New Patriotic Party (NPP) assumed office.
“I am ready, very ready! I am ready to work hard to provide jobs for our youth and reduce the high cost of living in the country,” Mr. Mahama posted on Facebook.
In a statement on his Facebook page, he said the NPP criticised the borrowings of the previous government but has managed the economy in a worse manner.
According to him, the NDC borrowed to improve and upgrade Ghana's economy.
Mahama said the NDC borrowed to develop infrastructure like clinics, district hospitals, affordable housing, roads and rail lines, expanded energy generation capacity and mechanisation of agriculture.
The former president also rebuked the Akufo-Addo administration for hijacking and claiming NDC's projects as theirs.
In conclusion, the NDC flagbearer, opined that the NPP has made the lives of Ghanaians worse than before.
“Today, Ghanaians pay far more for fuel and transportation than they paid under the NDC. Unemployment among our youth continues to rise against the backdrop of bankruptcies and collapsing businesses," he wrote.
Mahama further urged Ghanaians to vote the NDC back in power to fix and turn things around for the betterment of everyone.
He indicated his readiness to “work hard to provide jobs for our youth, as well as reduce the high cost of living in the country” if voted into power in 2020.
