John Dramani Mahama express his commitment to restore Ghana’s economy when he wins the 2024 elections.
The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) made the commitment after he accused the current NPP-led administration for recklessly damaging Ghana’s economy that has brought untold hardship to the people.
To draw quick attention to his commitment, the former president retorted to the populace that drastic action is needed to reset our nation on the right path and indicated that, the process must start in earnest with the 2024 polls.
“I feel your pain, your despair. The NPP has brought economic calamity upon us. We all know that drastic action is needed to reset our nation on the right path”, Mr. Mahama empathised in his New Year message delivered last week in a live broadcast. “That process must start in earnest with the 2024 polls. I’m happy to present myself as the man with the experience Ghana needs today to take us out of the doldrums that we have been plunged into. I’m here to offer hope to you all, and I’m committed to repairing the damage done to our economy and creating a brighter future for all Ghanaians.”
The flagbearer of the NDC pledged to lead the charge by creating new opportunities for Ghanaians, alleviating them from their unbearable hardships while highlighting the lack of socio-economic and infrastructural development in the current government’s management of the economy.
“The ultimate measure of leadership is not personal, and familiar gain, but selfless service to all, regardless of their background or political affiliations. This, sadly, is what we the people of Ghana have lacked over the last few years. We all lived painfully through the challenges that the failed Akufo-Addo-Bawumia administration has inflicted on us.”
He stressed, “Through their reckless mismanagement of the economy, poor governance, bare-faced corruption, and profligate expenditure, at the expense of socio-economic and infrastructural development, 2023 has been nothing but a continuation of hardships, a high cost of living, and worsening poverty for Ghanaians. The 2024 budget provides no hope for an improvement in our circumstances. They sought to squeeze the last blood from Ghanaians through taxes.”
Mr. Mahama also highlighted some of the key interventions he seeks to embark on to propel the economy including the facilitation of the 24hour economy.
