The Ablekuma South Constituency Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Geoffrey Attakli Banini has lashed out on the Akufo-Addo government for the hardship Ghanaians are experiencing 23 months after the New Patriotic party (NPP) assumed power.
Every sector of the economy, he observed, was suffering from the “economic mismanagement of President Nana Akufo-Addo and his NPP government”, thereby affecting the lives of teachers, drivers, traders, farmers and public sector workers, among others.
“He (the President) said we should try him and Ghanaians made a mistake and tried him not knowing he was going to drive us into a ditch. In 2016, he said there was a lot of money in the country and that, it was bad governance of the NDC that was Ghana’s problem but see what he is doing today,” Mr Banini said as he called for Ghanaians to kick the NPP out of power in 2020.
“He said Ghana is a rich country where citizens should not suffer but today this oldman is enjoying the riches with his family and friends. Is this the transformation he talked about?”
He told Mugabe Maase, host of Inside Politics on Radio XYZ 93.1, the heightening prices of goods and services in the country, the intermittent power outages and the series of industrial actions by some public sector workers in recent times was a clear indication that all was not well in the country.
Mahama Comeback Necessary
His comments come after he and some 33 constituency chairpersons of the NDC in the Greater Accra Region donated an undisclosed amount to the office of former president John Mahama to support his campaign ahead of the NDC primaries in January next year.
Explaining why they donated to the former president, Mr Yussif Saeed, the Constituency chairman for Okaikoi South also disclosed that Mr Mahama is the only marketed person in the party who can win power for the umbrella family in the 2020 general elections.

To him, the uncountable projects Mr Mahama initiated and could not complete before leaving office have been abandoned by president Akufo-Addo need to be completed.
“As president Akufo-Addo is touring the Greater Accra Region, many of the projects he is to inspect including the Tema Motorway roundabout were initiated by John Mahama,” said Mr Saeed who believes former president Mahama needs their support to come and complete “the good works” he commenced.
