The Akufo-Addo-Bawumia government has failed “spectacularly”, former President John Mahama has said.
The “failure of this government has been spectacular in all fronts”, Mr Mahama said when he launched the TEIN app at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) on Monday, 21 March 2022, adding that this can be put down to the administration’s “general incompetence and corruption”.
“Indeed, we all recollect some of those mouthwatering promises including one by the current president to transform this country, Ghana, within 18 months. The issues that affect the youth of Ghana who dominate our population are many”, he said.
Mr Mahama also bemoaned the consistent rise in the price of fuel and fall of the cedi against the dollar and wondered why Vice-President Mahamudu Bawumia, who promised to arrest the currency fall, has failed to do so.
“Daily price increases, fuel price adjustments and a nose-diving currency which has rather arrested the person who said he will arrest it. The dollar has rather arrested him, and, so, we are looking for him.
“We can’t find him. I asked the IGP if he had the key so that we could find where our Vice President was, but he said he doesn’t have it and doesn’t know his whereabouts”, he said.
The former President also said: “We are gathered at the time when our country is facing economic and social hardship”.
“The Akufo-Addo-led government that came to power on the back of mouthwatering promises to make life better for Ghanaians and ensure rapid development of our country has so badly mismanaged the economy. We have been plunged into the most debilitating economic crisis in about four decades.”
