Former president of Ghana and the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Party, John Dramani Mahama has subtly mocked the incumbent president of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo over his bad governance since assuming office five years ago.
John Mahama said it is sad that the Akufo-Addo led administration is still giving excuses and blaming others including the NDC for the current state of the nation after being in power for five years.
Mahama who spoke at the 40th Anniversary commemoration of the 31st December Revolution in Accra on Friday, urged Nana Akufo Addo to give way to him to manage the country if he can no longer manage the country.
“Leadership is about responsibility. It is only a poor leader who shirks responsibilities and shift blames. We had power crisis– dumsor in this country– because of lack of investment in generation for many years, and so we were consuming more power than we generated. That was the situation I met, and yet I did not say it is not my fault. I went to Parliament, took responsibility for it and promised to fix it, which we did.
“Today somebody [President Akufo-Addo] claims he inherited a weak economy, which he hasn’t been able to be responsible for, 5 years on. It’s always about Mahama and NDC. If he [Nana Akufo-Addo] cannot do the job, he should give way for the NDC to do it for you”, he added.
