According to the Greater Accra Regional Organiser of the reigning National Democratic Congress (NDC), Anthony Nukpenu, all the current hardships plaguing Ghanaians are remnants from former president John Agyekum Kufuor.
Mr Nukpenu's comments follow earlier comments by ex-President Kufuor which suggested that Ghana was in an economic crisis.
Mr Kufour said, "Our country is in crisis now. We seem to be losing our way. We started off with so much promise but within a short time, we started faltering economically." He alleged that the "economic crisis" was a result of ineffective leadership.
M. Kufuor stressed the need for a tougher approach in dealing with officials of government who were found flouting the law.
In rebuttal, Mr Nukpenu claims, "Mr Kufour and his people should accept that they have pushed us to where we are today, he is part of the problem. It was under his leadership that poultry production disintegrated. It was under his watch that pharmaceutical industry slumped, so what is he saying?"
He was speaking on Accra-based Onua FM. According to him, is the economic situation under the Kufuor-led NPP government were any good, the former president would not have resorted to selling the country's assets to defray costs.
