The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo Addo has tagged the tenure of former president, John Mama as an unmitigated disaster explaining that the economy under him during his reign from 2013 to 2016 was disastrous.
He made these remarks in reaction to a question a journalist posed on Vovradio in which she made reference to a statement made by former President John Mahama where he dragged the current Akufo Addo’s government and accused them of mismanaging the economy.
According to the NPP flagbearer, John Mahama can’t lecture him on how to manage the economy because his track record is abysmal.
Responding to the statement, the President stated that;
“I wonder whether this statement was made tongue in cheek by the former president. When you look at the record that this political leader, who can accuse my government of mismanagement, there are a few facts that when you put on the table to compare his performance and mine, it would tell you whether what I am offering the people is economic mismanagement.”
“I wonder what words should we describe his (Mahama) stewardship of Ghana. It is an unmitigated disaster, that’s what I would call him.”
“He is not on strong ground when he is talking about the economy. His track record, I am reluctant to use these strong words, but in normal parlance, I would say it is abysmal and, therefore, he has no lessons to give me at all in the management of the economy,” President Akufo-Addo added.
