Mahama running family and friends gov’t – NPP

faminy-dindf-fidfThe opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has criticised government for failing to address the needs of all citizens but rather transforming the lives of only friends, family and cronies of the president.

NPP Policy Advisor Boakye Agyarko, who addressed a press conference at the party headquarters in Accra on Monday, September 19, indicated: “Even members of his [Mr Mahama’s] own party recognise that the president’s ‘Better Ghana Agenda’ has been for the benefit of only his family and friends.”

According to him, the president is “out of touch with the problems of the average Ghanaian” to the extent that he sees his “non-performance” in various sectors as a success.

He indicated that after four years of the Mahama government, there was nothing to show as tangible achievement on alleviating the plight of citizens, stressing that “when you speak to random people around Ghana, it appears their concerns, problems, and anxieties are the same: unemployment, bad roads, the lack of decent and affordable accommodation and the high costs as well as the falling standards in education and health”.

Mr Agyarko said President Mahama wanted Ghanaians to believe that if re-elected, he would “ensure equitable development for all our citizens”.

“The reality, however, is starkly different; development is highly skewed,” he noted.

For him, a president who cannot solve the “bread and butter” issues of citizens but rather makes the lives of Ghanaians worse cannot continue in office for another term.

He charged the electorate to ensure that they vote for a better life come December 7 during the presidential and parliamentary polls.
