Former President John Dramani Mahama has disputed claims of the NPP government that it is managing the economy effectively, calling it mere propaganda, and their ‘lies’ will be exposed by the realities of the lives of Ghanaians.
Mr. Mahama, in a brief speech at the end of a public lecture on the state of Ghana’s economy, touted his government’s achievements during their tenure, adding that the NDC had capable people managing the economy. Mahama also mounted a strong defence of his former appointees, some of whom addressed the event earlier on Thursday.
They included former deputy Finance Minister, Mr. Cassiel Ato Forson; Madam Mona Quartey; Former Energy Minister, John Jinapor, and Ketu South MP, Fiifi Kwetey who all challenged the proclamations made about the state of the country’s economy by members of the Economic Management Team, including the Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on Wednesday.
Giving the vote of thanks as the leader of the NDC, Mr Mahama reiterated comments he made last year while addressing delegates of the NDC in the Northern Region, during his campaign to lead the NDC into elections 2020. He said; “You can do all the lies and the propaganda of the economy you like, the reality of the people’s lives will expose you.
”Mr Mahama also touted the economic credentials of Mr Isaac Adongo, the main speaker for the lecture. The NDC’s flagbearer also had high praise for the former Minister of Education, Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang.
