We can’t trust failed Mahama – Nana Akomea

The former MP for Okaikwei South and Director for Bawumia’s Campaign Communications, has stated that John Mahama is a tried but failed leader and can not be the new, fresh leader the country will be  looking for in the December elections.

Nana Akomea was speaking during the acclamation ceremony for Hon. Darkoa Newman, the current MP for Okaikwei South, last Saturday, 20th January, at the Kaneshie Presby Church.

Nana Akomea said John Mahama laid out his vision for the country in 2008 when he was a vice presidential candidate.

“He reiterated his vision when he became president in July 2012, sadly, in the four and half years he was President,( the longest period for any first term president), Mahama’s presidency was characterized by Dumsor, Economic hardships, and corruption on a grand scale.”

He noted that Dumsor under Mahama lasted four years, during which period hundreds of Ghanaians lost their lives and thousands of businesses collapsed. He further noted that economic conditions under Mahama were so severe that President Mahama had to go the IMF for bailout.

Corruption, he noted, was rampant under  President Mahama, and it was during the period that Gyeeda, Sada, Bus Branding,  etc. all became common by words for corruption in Ghana. President Mahama himself was directly cited in corruption cases, including the West Blue contract and the infamous Ford car bribery.

Nana Akomea said all the promises Mahama is making today, he made them  in various forms to Ghanaians in 2008 and especially in 2012, when he assumed the presidency. Yet, during his tenure, corruption didn’t improve, the economy did not improve, unemployment worsened, etc, leading to the massive loss Mahama suffered in the 2016 elections.

Nana Akomea reminded his audience that  “President Mahama told Ghanaians he had a dead goat syndrome,  and also, he would not take criticism from anyone who had not been president before. How can such a person be asking   to be president again?” Akomea asked.

Nana Akomea concluded that Bawumia has never been president, and has never been tagged with involvement in any corruption  case, whether directly or indirectly.

“Bawumia’s prognosis and prescriptions for the economy still remain true, and if voted as president , he will be in a position to deliver for Ghana.”

Adding that, “Bawumia is a fresh candidate who, given the chance as president, has a high possibility to deliver progress for all, compared to John Mahama, who has been president, and whose record was poor, leading to his rejection by Ghanaians”
