The wife of Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, Samira, has mocked John Dramani Mahama’s promise to create one million jobs if elected president in the December 7 polls.
Mahama in one of his campaign rallies promised to put Ghanaians back to work by creating one million jobs in fours when he regains the presidency.
The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) said his second administration will pursue an aggressive job and entrepreneurial programme in the public and private sector.
That, he said “will deliver a minimum of 250,000 jobs every year. A total of 1,000,000 jobs across the country by the end of my term in office in 2024. We will put Ghanaians to work to earn a decent living.”
Commenting on the promise, the Second Lady, said Mahama lack’s the competence to deliver on such a promise.
Addressing the chiefs and people of Nsuta|Kwamang|Beposo constituency in the Ashanti region, Bawumia said Mahama would have created those jobs in his first stint as president of Ghana, had he the competence to do so.
She asked: “Let us not be deceived. My question to him is if he knew how to create one million jobs, why didn’t he do it when he was in power? If the NDC is capable, why didn’t they do it in the eight years they were in power?”
Meanwhile, more than half of Ghanaians surveyed in an Election Poll do not think Akufo-Addo has fulfilled his promises well enough to deserve re-election as president of Ghana in the December 2020 presidential election.
The first wave of results of the Ghana Election Poll conducted online via renowned market research firm, MSI-ACI, from May 1 through to June 30 found that 52% of the respondents are against the view that the president deserves another 4-year mandate based on fulfilled promises.
In a related report, Akufo-Addo said that the policies and programmes implemented by his government are proof that the NPP has the blueprint of the development of Ghana in mind.
