Mahama blames clergy and CSOs for economic woes

Flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC)  John Dramani Mahama, says the clergy and civil society organizations(CSOs) should be blamed for the country’s current economic crisis.

According to the former President, the clergy and civil society organizations failed to criticize the government for its extravagant spending of borrowed funds.

Speaking at the Techiman Timber Market as part of his two-day tour of the Bono East Region, Mr. Mahama urged the members to vote for him as the NDC is prepared to turn around the fortunes of the country.

Mahama also alleged that loans contracted by the NPP government, which he estimates at $3 billion annually, were not invested in productive ventures.

“The clergy, civil society and others in authority reneged on their watchdog role. From 2018, all vigilant people noticed the economy continued to dip. The Economic crisis was imminent. Only the NDC told the President that his brother who serves as finance minister has refused to use the 3 billion dollar loan contracted every year judiciously,” he said.

“The President himself in response to questions on the economy admitted it will take the next President to fix the country. He has lost hope himself. We know that the John Mahama administration is the government to fix the challenge,” he added.

At a Town Hall meeting during the tour, former President Mahama noted that a National Apprenticeship Program campaign policy will be implemented if he is given the mandate to lead the country to address unemployment challenges and boost the economy as well.

“Skills training is one of the means of reviving the economy. Even graduates will have to learn a skill. Even if you want to travel abroad, it is easier to get a job as a skilled person. No matter your qualification, you should learn a trade”.
