The Progressive People’s Party (PPP) is stunned that the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, in his second State of the Nation Address, completely ignored the true state of the nation.
A statement signed by the National Secretary, Murtala Mohammed, in Accra on Tuesday said the true state of the nation was known to every Ghanaian and that no eulogy could change it.
The statement said, ‘‘the state of our nation Ghana is one where the government has completely abandoned the change agenda and adopted the laissez-faire attitude of previous regimes from 1992.’’
According to the statement, ‘‘All the macroeconomic gains touted by the President – a phenomenon that has characterised successive governments since 1992 – are not reflective of the realities on the ground because majority of Ghanaians do not experience these economic gains. We are equally surprised the President failed to mention the state of Ghana’s health sector.’’
‘‘The health sector is one that cannot take care of its own Vice- President and that the mere fact that the President could not stick his head out on the number of jobs he has created is tacit admission of failure on the part of the government.
