Former president John Dramani Mahama has announced what he believes to be the exact problem plunging the current Akufo-Addo administration and Ghana into an abyss.
The most likely flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the next presidential election said the president and his appointees don't take advice and don't take responsibility for failures.
"Nothing can be fixed if the leader cannot take responsibility," he jabbed president Akufo-Addo when he spoke to party executives in the Awutu Senya East and West Constituencies on Tuesday, March 29, 2023.
He stressed that Akufo-Addo and his hoard of appointees are masters of the blame game because they blame everybody and everything but themselves when something goes wrong.

“What is making it difficult for them to govern is that they are not people who listen to advice. They never accept their mistakes, so they are not able to learn from their mistakes,” Akufo-Addo said.
Citing an example, he said although he did not cause the power crisis that hit his administration because demand had exceeded generation, he took responsibility.
My dad would have asked NDC MPs to swear on Antoa
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh has reported in a separate story that NDC MP for Korle Klottey Dr Zanetor Agyemang-Rawlings said the outcome of a secret ballot on Friday, March 24, 2023, that approved six Akufo-Addo ministers shows the party is heading towards disaster.
She posted on Facebook on March 27, 2023, that her dad would have asked the NDC MPs to swear by the revered river deity, Antoa Nyamaa, or take the lie-detector test to prove they didn't vote to approve the ministers.
Dr Zanetor Agyemang-Rawlings asked the party to use the outcome of the vote in Parliament last Friday as an opportunity to fix cracks in the party and forge a united front.
