In his deceptive scheme to rekindle his strained romantic relationship with the Ghanaian electorate, Mahama goes about throwing mud at the Government.
He and his charges have been asking for the ‘monumental’ projects loans contracted under this administration have been expended on. He goes ahead to say that loans added to what was bequeathed to the Akufo-Addo administration do not commensurate with developmental projects.
Our infrastructural projects can be traced on the delivery tracker provided by the Vice President of the Republic, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia.
Apart from that, most of the so-called huge infrastructural projects the NDC claims it undertook were not paid for. They’re being paid by the Akufo-Addo administration.
The banking and financial services sector was messed up by Mahama. The sector was in a coma, on a life support machine, ready to give up the ghost until Akufo-Addo rescued it with over GHS14 billion.
Over 4 million Ghanaians would have had their deposits lost if President Akufo-Addo had not taken the decision to sanitize the sector.
The microfinance institutions had plummeted to the extent that thousands of Ghanaians would have lost their deposits if a decisive decision had not been taken to bail them out, the adverse effects would be unbearable.
These and many highly important expenditures had to be made, including the COVID-19 period, to safeguard the lives of the people.
Is it not instructive that Mr. Mahama asked the then Minority Leader, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu to consult Parliament for all the projects loans contracted then were meant for? He sarcastically indicated that Kyei Mensah Bonsu was sleeping in Parliament, else he would have known what monies contracted as loans were used for.
John Mahama is now asking the Akufo-Addo administration what it has spent loans contracted on. Is Parliament closed? Can’t he find that out from Parliament since every loan contracted by the state passes through Parliament with details of what they would be used for?
You can clearly notice that he himself is diseased from the forgetfulness he loudly talked about when he was president. That’s the only logical explanation for a response he gave then but turns around to ask the same question that elicited that response.
There is no alternative to the Akufo-Addo administration. Mahama and his NDC have nothing good for Ghanaians. Let’s keep them in opposition for many years.
