‘I Think The President Must Take His Responsibilities Seriously’ – Mahama To Akufo-Addo

Ghanaians Are Really Suffering; Times Under Akufo-Addo Government Are Hard - John Mahama Laments

The 2020 Presidential Candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has once again taken on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Mr. Mahama is of the view that President Akufo-Addo has done very little for Ghanaians since he took over the mantle of administration of the country.

President Akufo-Addo on Sunday, December 19, 2021, touted his government’s achievements during the NPP’s National Delegates Conference in Kumasi.

He insisted that his government has chalked more successes than any other government in the fourth republic.

He thus charged all members of the NPP to be proud of this, and also let Ghanaians know about the good works of his government.

“This government has spent more money on education, health, industry, agriculture, and infrastructure, particularly our roads, than any government in the fourth republic. We have spent more money on improving the circumstances of our people, and I am very proud to have led this government that has brought this level of achievements to our country.”

However, Mr. Mahama disagrees with the claims by President Akufo-Addo.

According to him, Ghanaians have come to realise that the president is a good campaigner but a poor leader, and that Ghanaians “found this out at great cost”.

“I think the President must take his responsibilities seriously and focus on working to change the circumstances of our people, rather than the rabble-rousing skits he serves the nation.”

“With his speech of yesterday [Sunday], he has carved his niche as a good campaigner, but unfortunately a poor leader, as Ghanaians have found out at great cost.”

Meanwhile, he has also said he is willing to offer an autographed copy of the NDC’s 2020 Manifesto to the president to assist him in managing the country.

“To answer his rhetorical question on policy, if only he took a moment, in the comfort of his chartered jet, to read the People’s manifesto, he would have at least learnt about the ‘Big Push’ (an accelerated infrastructure plan for Ghana), ‘Free Primary Health Care Plan’, the ‘1 million jobs plan’, ‘Ghana FIRST’ (Framework for Industrial Revitalisation, Support and Transformation) and several other well-thought-through and costed policies.”

“I am willing to provide him with an autographed copy of the manifesto.”

Mr. Mahama made these comments in a Facebook post today, Monday, December 20, 2021.

Kwame A Plus Blames President Akufo-Addo's 'Under Performance' Partly On His Age

Controversial Political activist and businessman, Kwame Asare Obeng popularly called Kwame A-Plus has rated the performance of the president as poor claiming his age has affected his ability to govern the country effectively, giving him 20%.

Berla Mundi shared a tweet of what A-Plus supposedly said on TV3’s NewDay about the president’s performance in the last 5yrs saying his age has affected his ability to govern the country effectively.

According to the post, Kwame A-Plus gave the president’s performance  20% and he thinks he’s overwhelmed, and his age has affected his ability to govern the country effectively which has turned him into a pastor now as he’s more lenient than he used to be.

To A-Plus going by the post Berla Mundi made, the president has become soft and not able to govern the country effectively because he’s overwhelmed and his age is also playing a very vital role in his inefficiency.

E-levy Saga: If You Send MoMo More Than GHS 100, You're Not Poor - Ursula Owusu

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Minister of Communications and Digitization, believes Ghana cannot keep begging or borrowing to finance its growth.

As a result, she claims the only way to increase income is to collect the 1.75 percent E-tax on financial transactions.

She said the E-levy would offer Ghana the much-needed resources to carry out its various developmental initiatives during a government town hall gathering in Koforidua, Eastern Region.

The cash must be created domestically or we must borrow, and we cannot continue to borrow to support our progress.

“To achieve Ghana beyond assistance, we must all support the e-levy and contribute to national development,” she stated.

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful cautioned that continuing to borrow from donors might rob Ghana of its independence and autonomy.

“Donors will control our growth speed as long as we are reliant on them,” she envisaged.
