The general secretary of the of the People's National Convention (PNC) Atik Mohammed has cautioned President Mahama to stop painting an illusion about Ghana and its economy to world leaders. He expressed his disappointment in Mahama for creating a supposedly vibrant economy to the world leader, while the real situation is far from perfect.
Speaking in an interview on Peace FM's Kokrokoo, Atik Mohammed said that the president was only deceiving the world, and not the world leaders at the UN summit, because the knew the true situation in Ghana. He said that president is doing wrong by trying to paint a good picture of the health of the economy at the summit and that it was terrible thing Mahama is doing to himself and the people.
" . .you go and say that our economy is resilient. I mean, for the life of me, how can the President come to the conclusion that our economy is resilient? Again, what are the pointers showing that our economy is resilient? I was really [really] disappointed that the President will go and present a rather untrue picture of our economy to the outside world,” he added.
President Mahama is at the 71st UN General Assembly in New York where he assured the world leaders present, that Ghana's democracy would be consolidated after the December elections. He is also reported to have told the council that Ghana resilience has made it the 'leading democracy in Africa'.
