President Akufo-Addo’s pledge to reduce fuel prices when voted into was a mere campaign talk which cannot be achieved, Nana Akomea, the Managing Director of the State Transport Company has suggested.
Speaking on Metro TV after a video of then candidate Nana Addo was played promising Ghanaians to reduce fuel prices he said politicians talk when in opposition and only get to see the reality when voted into power.
He however noted that politicians should be able to come out and explain to Ghanaians why they made certain promises during campaign and are unable to achieve when voted for.
“Every political leader on campaign makes the same comment. CJA, where Sammy Okudzeto says that is where he got his political influence, they made the same sentiments. All of them. When leaders are campaigning they make these promises but when they come into office, there is a reality check.
“When you are a political leader and you make certain statements as part of your messaging to the Ghanaian people and you come into office and see that the reality is different, you need to go back to tell them why you made this promise but why it is difficult for you to fulfill that promise. You need to do that.
