Former president who doubles as the 2020 National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama has underscored the need to help rescue Ghanaians from the Akufo-Addo government.
While describing the government as a sinking ship, former president Mahama said the opposition NDC also feels the suffering of ordinary Ghanaians.
Mahama said he has learnt some “useful lessons” since his exit and has also been gathering “effective feedback” from stakeholders.

Mahama lamented that after experiencing three years of the Akufo-Addo government, some Ghanaians are losing faith in democracy and are beginning to consign themselves to apathy using quips such as “politicians are the same”, "it is no use voting".
The government, he said, has taken its sacred social contract with Ghanaians for granted and have become “deeply demoralised” because promises have turned out to be a “grand deception.”
He said the 2020 general election could either “consolidate the faith of our people in republican democracy or shatter it for good.”
“We are coming to give you hope” Mahama described the NDC’s mission in 2020.
