"We have a President who has run out of ideas on how to solve the economic challenges we find ourselves in," Mahama jabbed.

The former president's address underscored his concerns regarding the administration's perceived lack of innovative solutions to tackle the country's economic challenges.

Mahama contended that the president had, in effect, shifted his focus towards ensuring the success of his chosen successor as the nation's next president. This, he argued, had left Akufo-Addo ill-equipped to deal with the pressing economic issues facing the nation.

Mahama's passionate lament also extended to the hardships that have befallen many Ghanaians, with a growing number unable to afford the basic necessity of three square meals a day.

He passionately stated that Ghana could ill afford the resurgence of the NDC, particularly under the leadership of John Dramani Mahama.
