Comparing Mahama’s records with mine is like comparing ‘Chalk and Cheese’ – Akufo-Addo
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has made a strenuous comparison of records chalked by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) under former President John Mahama while in government and that of governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) today ahead of this year’s polls scheduled for December 7, 2020.
“Our records and his is definitely chalk and cheese and there’s no comparison between theirs and ours whatsoever so their claims don’t bother me at all”, President Akufo-Addo during an interview monitored MyNewsGh.com on Wontumi TV said.
According to the President, the John Mahama led administration during its tenure picked the economy with an inflow of oil revenue and then sunk it into some 3.4 percent rate of growth when the ruling New Patriotic Party took office in 2017.
“This is the man who presided over the worst statistics in the economic history of our country, who also picked an economy and oil company and then sunk it into a 3.4 percent rate of growth”, President Akufo-Addo observed.
The comment by the President follows various calls by the opposition NDC describing the almost four-year tenure of the ruling party as a socio-economic failure.
“When they speak of my failure I’m not so concerned because it really does not bother my mind and I have to be honest with you about it,” President Akufo-Addo said.
Meanwhile, Ghanaians will on December 7, 2020, go to the polls to elect a President as part of four-year constitutional mandate in a general election.
The contest will see John Dramani Mahama, flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) contend against Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the current President of the Republic and flag-bearer for the New Patriotic Party(NPP).
