Director of Elections for the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Elvis Afriyie Ankrah has slammed President Nana Akufo-Addo over the declining economy of the country.
The former minister who was reacting to the governance of Nana Akufo-Addo said the NPP’s governance ” has been an unmitigated disaster” since 2017.
Comparing the government of the erstwhile Mahama administration to the current Akufo-Addo government, Afriyie Ankrah said Ghana is not doing well under the NPP.
Speaking to some Ghanaians in the diaspora, the former minister outlined the achievements of former president John Mahama, stressing that the NDC government left enough funds for the NPP government yet Ghanaians are poorer than how the state of the nation was before January 2017.
“We have a lot of things to show for the loans we took. We have terminal 3 [Kotoka Internet Airport], we have ports, we have roads, we have hospitals: the University of Ghana Hospital, the Maritime Hospitals, we have district hospitals to show for the loans,” he stated and asked the NPP to challenge his claim.
He said the NPP had borrowed more than the 8 years the NDC was in power, adding ” when you talk about it, they say free SHS.”
“The Free SHS is oil money,” he added.
