Former President John Mahama has listed 8 major problems he believes are facing the country which the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government is not solving but which the then NDC government was trying to solve before being voted out of power.
The NDC 2020 candidate listed the economy, high unemployment, politicization of state institutions, mounting corruption and insecurity appear tops of the challenges. Of these, Mr. Mahama rated the economy as the most important attacking the Akufo-Addo government for bringing unbearable hardship and economic mismanagement upon Ghanaians.
Mr. Mahama was speaking at the Kempinksi Hotel to thank the 6.2million votes he got in the 2020 election even as rumours swell that Mr. Mahama is eyeing the NDC 2024 top slot.
“The most pressing problem is the impact of the ailing economy on livelihoods, prospects and dreams. The consequences of misguided priorities in economic management have led to unbearable hardship, high unemployment and the frustration and despair felt by millions of the youth” Mr. Mahama said.
He added: “The others include the bastardisation and politicisation of state institutions. The mounting corruption, rising insecurity, abuse of power, lack of investment in critical infrastructure and abandonment of projects and heavy-handed governance,” he enumerated.
