Nana Akufo-Addo, the flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party’s (NPP), has expressed confidence that President john Mahama will be booted out of office after the November election.
Speaking at a public forum in Accra, Akufo Addo said there was a national demand for change due to what he said was poor performance of the Mahama administration.
He pointed to what he said was high youth unemployment, high inflation, high lending rate as evidence of Mahama’s failing as president.
He said the Mahama government answer to all those problems was to roll out “a so-called Green Book containing a so-called achievement”.
“This book supposedly sets out a record of infrastructural projects, many of which have turned out to be artist’s impression and non-existent on the ground,” he added.
Stressing that the president did not deserve a second-term, Akufo-Addo urged Ghanaians to vote him out in November in order to, according to him, help the country, which he said, was a sinking ship, to change course.
“The 2016 general election is a critical one for our country; critical not only because it signals the end of an incumbent party’s second term in office but even more critical in determining the future direction of our country and the well-being of our people,” he said.
