President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is being accused of being the biggest liar in Ghana’s political history.
Citing campaign promises in 2016 and 2020, Richard Prah of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) notes Akufo-Addo and his New Patriotic Party(NPP) can never be trusted under any given circumstance, especially their promises to better the lot of Ghanaians.
He made his claims on Kumasi-based radio station Ultimate FM monitored by Ashantibiz.com
“Nana Addo is the liar of the century; all the signs are there for all to see. He lied about transforming Ghana in 18 months, was that possible, what has really changed under him, more hardship. He said, he will protect the public purse, has that happened, he has borrowed in excess of 500 billion cedis, no government has done that since Kwame Nkrumah, he lied and continues to lie” he retorted.
“He said we are sitting on money, he talked about taxation to production, what has happened”, he asked again.
“Nana Addo, said fuel was expensive and that he will make things better, he said under Mahama fuel was expensive but today how much are we buying one gallon almost 70 cedis. The man can lie, I can go on and on, Ghanaians can bare me out”, he lamented
President Nana Addo and the NPP have been under fire for their poor performance especially with the ailing economy.
There is tension in the country as prices of goods and services keep skyrocketing in the markets and a rising inflation with no control.
The happenings many argue, is an affront to all the promises Nana Addo made to Ghanaians about making life comfortable for them.
