Presidential candidate of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) says governance under President John Mahama has been a disaster.
In his view, all the economic indices in the history of the fourth republic has gone backwards under the Mahama-led government.
Speaking on Accra-based Peace FM, the NPP leader said given the “style and substance of governance” under President Mahama, the future of the country is bleak.
“Mahama is a threat to the future of this country; Ghana will be going into the ditch if he[Mahama] is retained in power.
The NPP leader said in spite of the numerous resources the country has been endowed with, the people continue to wallow in poverty.
He noted that, under his leadership he will ensure that the country experience the deserved growth given all the natural and human resources the country has.
“We have to vote and bring change to Ghana. I am appealing to you to repose your confidence in me and the Elephant. Give me the opportunity to serve you, so we can implement policies which will create jobs, and bring wealth to all Ghanaians.”
Nana Akufo-Addo maintained that the only way Ghanaians can prevent unemployment and the crippling socio-economic conditions in the country is by using their thumbs to vote out the Mahama-led NDC.
“We, in the NPP, are coming to change Ghana and ensure that our monetary system is solid, so that we can have a stable currency. When this happens, you, as business people, and your businesses will grow. I need your support. Have confidence in me, and I assure you that I will never disappoint you”.
“Every pledge I have made concerning the policies and programmes I have outlined are policies I intend to keep. I have too much love and respect for the people of Ghana to lie to them. Whatever promises I have said, I have every intention of keeping them,” he stressed.
