Kwame Baffoe Abronye DC Writes


I have watched a video footage of former president of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama calling on the government and the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) to deliberate on paying some monies to contributors to reduce the hardships they may be facing due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Mr Mahama said that this will help mitigate the effects of the outbreak on the social and economic lives of contributors.
John Mahama said this when he held his first digital conversation which is a medium he has decided to use to deceive Ghanaians.


1. It is important to note that, under the NDC Ghanaians experienced dreadful moments of Dumsor worst than a pandemic where Ghanaians lost their jobs, livelihoods, etc.
Ghanaians suffered immensely during the Dumsor era.

For the avoidance of doubt, former President Mahama during his 2015 State of the Nations Address noted that, ‘Mr. Speaker, As I present this State of the Nation Address, our nation is confronted with one of such hill; the challenge of providing adequate electricity to power industry, business and for residential consumption. The effects and frustrations posed by the power deficit are clearly felt in our work places, our homes, schools and hospitals. The storage of food, academic activity, and artisans such as barbers, hairdressers, welders, and health care providers are all feeling the pinch of the power shortage.
Big businesses and industries are also suffering and threatening to lay off workers. As leader of this nation by the grace of God, I more than anyone else understand the adverse impact of this energy shortfall on the growth of our economy’.

This is a clear admission by the former president Mahama that, indeed Ghana was in crises.

My simple question to John Mahama and the NDC is that during that time what relief package did he give to Ghanaians?

If for nothing at all, President Akuffo Addo can be credited for retrieving GhS 3 billion SSNIT cash which would have been wasted by the NDC led John Mahama government.

John Mahama should come and tell Ghanaians what he did for them when he admitted Ghanaians were suffering?

2. Under the presidency of John Mahama and the NDC, $66million Of SSNIT contributors money was dubiously used to purchase a mere software. Currently, the matter is under trial in court.

3. Under the administration of John Mahama, SSNIT tier 3 monies went missing for no reason but same has been retrieved by the able NPP government.

Flowing from the above, it is clear that, John Mahama is a blatant liar and a hypocrite and must be rejected by Ghanaians again.

The desperate conman is now behaving as if he cares for the Ghanaian people but with reference to his own comments during his 2015 State of the Nations address quoted above, he admitted categorically that, Ghanaians were going through hardships during the Dumsor era.

I am using this medium to challenge the former president to mention just one relief package he gave to Ghanaians during the Dumsor period and I will vote for him.

In this era of covid 19, President Akuffo Addo has provided a lot of relief packages for the Ghanaian people including a 50% subsidy of electricity, free water for 3 months, etc
I have set the challenge. John Mahama and his ignorant babies with sharp teeth should just mention one relief package they have to Ghanaians during the Dumsor era.
