Former Ghana President John Dramani Mahama says the country’s present leader, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is a poor leader who continues to shirk his responsibilities towards changing the circumstances of the Ghanaian.
President Akufo-Addo had taken a swipe at John Mahama and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) at his party’s annual delegates conference in Kumasi on Sunday, insinuating that the NDC has not been able to propose a single policy in the last five years.
In a response on Facebook, former President Mahama said Ghanaians have finally “found out at great cost” that President Akufo-Addo is a poor leader. He also reminded the president that he must take his position and responsibility serious.
“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.”
On the issue of policy proposals, Mr. Mahama threw a jab at Nana Akufo-Addo.
“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.”.
President Mahama ended by offering to make an autographed copy of the NDC’s 2020 manifesto available to Mr. Akufo-Addo.
