Akufo-Addo’s second term won’t have Mahama’s mistakes to fix – Sammy Awuku
The National Organizer of the New Patriotic Party is optimistic about the future of Ghana because a second term for President Akufo-Addo will not be slowed by the mistakes of the erstwhile Mahama government.
Sammy Awuku believes Akufo-Addo’s first term was used to fix the Mahama administration’s mistakes that run down the economy.
He said even amid having to fix mistakes made by the Mahama government, the party has delivered on its promises beyond reasonable doubts.
“We have delivered but there are even more ahead of us to deliver more progress and prosperity to every household in Ghana…Even as we were faced with the difficult task of fixing what the Mahama government and his NDC destroyed we delivered what we promised,” he said.
In February,Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia marked the scripts of the Akufo-Addo administration, scoring the government high marks on delivering on its promises.
In December last year, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo scored his government 72 %on delivering on the ruling party’s promises.
This is against IMANI’s 42% rating.
But at the event to tick the boxes of the government’s more than 300 promises, the Vice-President scored the government 78%—six more than the President gave himself during the December media encounter.
But addressing a press conference in Accra on Thursday, the National Organiser insisted the Ghanaian economy would have worsened with the advent of the global pandemic, coronavirus if the country was not governed by a strong, decisive, and caring leader.
“The superior management of the economy by the Akufo-Addo government is what has saved Ghana now “ he noted.
He said the performance of the Akufo-Addo led government would make the 2020 elections an easy choice for the electorates.
“2020 election will be essentially between the NPP and the NDC which is akin to a battle between the kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of darkness.”
Mahama is indecisive
“We believe it will be an easy choice to make because unfortunately for John Mahama the people of Ghana do not have a short memory”
“Mahama is indecisive, he does not know what he wants, he takes decisions according to the wind, he has no principles…he is not the bold strong leader Ghana has and needs to resolve the complex problems confronting the state” he added
He said unlike 2016 when the party launched its manifesto two months to the general election, the party will launch its 2020 manifesto on August 22.
“The manifesto is important to us because we have shown over the first term of the Akufo-Addo administration that we deliver what we promise”
