The Akufo-Addo government has failed in managing Ghana’s economy in the past two years, the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has said.
According to the biggest opposition party, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia have both lost touch with the plight of Ghanaians.
At the party’s maiden ‘Moment of Truth’ (MOT) press conference on Wednesday, 12 December 2018, the National Communication Officer, Mr Sammy Gyamfi, said: “It would appear to us that the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government is still oblivious of what the times are in Ghana. The president and his vice, who are busily enjoying the largess of power, have lost touch with the reality of dire economic straits that their mis-governance and maladministration have brought to this country.
“Today, the Ghanaian people are seeking answers, and the harder they seek, the more the president and his vice continue to beat their own drum and dance to the tune. However, while the president and his vice are busy at what they do best, which is to employ the worst kind of sophistry and guile to explain away their failure, we in the NDC will not sit aloof and watch them throw dust into the eyes of the Ghanaian people.
“Ladies and gentlemen, indeed, the Moment of Truth (MOT) has arrived, and we shall, through this initiative, expose the veritable temple of broken promises and deceptions of the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government.
“Obviously, the NPP government must be living in their own world. A world far removed from the real world of the suffering people of Ghana. In their delusion, they claim to have delivered on many of their promises”, Mr Gyamfi noted.
He continued: “The reality, however, is that the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government has so far been a monumental failure. Having betrayed the trust of the Ghanaian people, they have again resorted to lies in a desperate attempt to save their fast-sinking image.
“Friends from the media, the NPP have, and will always have a DNA of lies, double talk and hypocrisy. However, no pillar built on lies can stand the test of truth. Through the Moment of Truth (MOT) series, we shall continuously expose the grand deceptions and abysmal performance of this impotent, inept, nepotistic and dishonest government. We know without a shudder of doubt that this temple built of wicked lies will surely come crumbling in the fullness of time”.
