2024 Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama says Ghanaians must be on the look out for vote-buying promises and shoddy projects in the days ahead as government desperately explores how to outwit electorates again.
According to him, with the limited time left, the NPP can only promise phantom projects to mislead unsuspecting voters.
“What they (government ) have done in the last 8years is what their capacity could handle. There is nothing more they can do at this time. They have messed up the economy” he intimated.
John Mahama, accompanied by former Chief of Staff Julius Debrah, Dr Calistus Mahama, National executives of the party, MPs and other party officials reiterated the NDC’s commitment to be realistic with the populace and deliver on policy objectives to improves lives.
“People say politics is dirty so just tell the people what they want to hear and win power. But we in that NDC are not like that. We have been swallowed by debt. They promised you heaven but what one developmental project can you in point in this constituency since the NDC left office in 2016. The masses are suffering but just a few are enjoying. They think the elections can be bought. They gave 200 each to constituents in Assin North but it didn’t wash. If they bring the money take it nothing will happen to you” he stressed.
John Mahama was speaking at a town hall meeting at Frankadua in the Asuogyaman Constituency as part of his two day Building Ghana Tour of the Eastern Region.
