According to him, Mahama will achieve such feat because the Akufo-Addo government which promised Ghanaians everything under the sun to win political power has failed to deliver on its promises.
Mr. Kwakye Ofosu said “looking at the track record of the two gentlemen [Mahama and Akufo-Addo] in terms of concrete measurable additions to Ghana’s development, Mahama is far ahead [of president Akufo-Addo].”
“In all truth and honesty, when the time comes for a decision to be made by Ghanaians, I’m very certain that based on what we will offer and our track record and the good things we’ve done which we have evidence to show, the NDC will be a better choice for the people of Ghana,” he added.
The former Deputy Communications Minister made the audacious claim on Asempa FM’s political programme, Ekosii sen on Monday, on the back of John Mahama’s description of the Akufo-Addo government as being “super incompetent.”
Former President John Mahama, while addressing members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Wa over the weekend at the party’s unity walk, took on the Akufo-Addo government and also sarcastically said the governing party might need a miracle from the controversial pastor, Daniel Obinim, to overcome its super incompetence; a remark that has not been taken kindly by the NPP.
The Deputy Information Minister, Nana Ama Dokua Asiamah-Adjei, who seemed unhappy with Mahama’s jabs, said he was Africa’s “incompetent election observer.”
But Kwakye Ofosu said Mahama was even charitable to President Nana Akufo-Addo saying he [Kwakye Ofosu] would have described the governing party as “hopelessly incompetent” government.
He argued that the governing party has increased the country’s debt stock astronomically within the last 15 months in office but has nothing to show.
“All the borrowing they have done so far, show me what they have used it for apart from financing consumption. In terms of incompetent handling of Ghana’s economy…[former] President Mahama was charitable when he said they were super incompetent. If it were me, I would have said they are hopelessly incompetent,” he said.
