Mahama sleeps throughout NDC’s rejection of NPP’s track record

Published

on

Former president and NDC flagbearer, John Mahama was captured slightly nodding his head during his party’s outline of pointers to be considered in discrediting the governing NPP’s track record, especially in the energy sector.

His nods were, however, nor of approval but weariness, or so it seemed, as his eyelids closed with every bop.

Next to Mr Mahama was the NDC National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo, the latter was equally struggling to keep his eyes open.

The two were among several other party stalwarts present at a forum on the state of Ghana’s energy sector, themed; Confronting Corruption and Ensuring Wealth Creation for All, Not a Few.

The forum was organised a day after government held a Town Hall meeting in the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi, to assess how the NPP led administration has fared in its first term which is almost over.

Among other things, a former Power minister John Jinapor disclosed during his presentation that the country’s energy sector was on the verge of collapse as there was an outstanding 15 billion Ghana cedi debt being owed by the Akufo-Addo led administration.

He also claimed that despite the incumbent president being more fortunate than his predecessor, he had little to show for it.

“I think the time has come for us to be honest, the time has come for politicians to state the truth and be honest to the people of Ghana because politics can also be about the truth.

Like I said if you look at total revenues – and I decided to do three years [against] three years – if you look at the budget, President Mahama received GHC71 billion in the three years, President Akufo-Addo has received GHC141 billion in three years, and, so, you can see the little that President Mahama got in terms of revenue and the whopping amount that President Akufo-Addo got and compare the two to see who has done better given the circumstances that they find themselves in”, he noted.

The duo would, however, not seemed to be moved as the cameras showed them dozing off.

There seems to be fire on the mountain for the minority NDC after the news broke about the Airbus scandal.

Former President Mahama has come under pressure to respond to claims of his involvement in the saga as it happened during his tenure.
