- Former president Kufuor has bemoaned the level of 'mismanagement' under the NDC administration thus called on Ghanaians to vote out the incumbent party come the November 7 elections
- Kufuor has expressed that voting out President Mahama would help salvage Ghana's ailing economy
Former President John Agyekum Kufuor is calling on Ghanaians to chose a different government come the November 7 elections.
Ex president Kufuor believes now is the time for the people of Ghana to chose a new leader and that despite the availability of resources such as the oil find in commercial quantities, the economy remains weak due to the mismanagement of the Mahama led government.
“In 2000, Ghana did not have oil, gas, the cocoa sector was bad, but currently we have everything to make this country prosperous, but wherever you go people are complaining of hardships. Traders are lamenting, the youth after completion of school have not hopes of securing jobs; prices of utilities have gone up. I believe strongly that Ghanaians need change and change must certainly come,” he stated on Kasapa FM.
The November 7 election has been seen as one of the most crucial elections in the democratic history of Ghana as both major parties; the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the incumbent National Democratic Congress (NDC) lace their boots to cling to power.
In the meantime, the chances of President John Dramani Mahama of the NDC remains marginally slim considering the economic challenges currently befallen the country.
