The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has indicated it would not soften its stance in criticizing government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo while wishing better economic conditions under him.
According to NDC General Secretary, Koku Anyidoho, Ghanaians for the past four months are very upset about New Patriotic Party (NPP) and Akufo-Addo led government because they have failed to improve the living standard of the ordinary Ghanaian.
“I don’t need to say it all, go to the markets and the shops and you will see how Ghanaians are very upset with the current government. They have indeed exchanged their LED Television sets for Black and White TVs”, he observed
The outspoken politician and ardent critic of the government however made a statement suggesting the economy could be improved under President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to lessen the sufferings of Ghanaians who are already complaining if the president stops sleeping and gets to work .
“I will not pray that NPP should continue to fail because Akufo-Addo is President. Should I go on that tangent, God will even not listen to my prayers. I wish better economic conditions for Ghanaians” he said on Kumasi-based Nhyiria FM.
He therefore asked Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia as chairman of the country’s economic management team to walk NPP’s talk contained in their 2016 campaign manifesto which convinced Ghanaians who voted for them.
“Those promises they made to Ghanaians must be fulfilled. I do not think we are expecting excuses that because of ‘XYZ’ we cannot fulfill the promises we made. Ghanaians must not accept such excuses”, he advised
“They told Ghanaians there is enough money in the system to pay teachers, nurses and recruit workers. Four months now, what are we seeing….Government does not have an excuse to do contrary to what we were told”, he added.
