Though it is barely the last day of the year the political banters still remain as former president Mahama has accused his successor President Akufo-Addo of not working up to expectations in running the affairs of the country.
He called the president out for not rising to the occasion when things go wrong.
Mr Maham levelled these accusations while speaking at the 40th-anniversary commemoration of the 31st December revolution in Accra on Friday.
“Leadership is about responsibility. It is only a poor leader who shirks responsibilities and shift blames. We had power crisis– dumsor in this country– because of lack of investment in generation for many years, and so we were consuming more power than we generated. That was the situation I met, and yet I did not say it is not my fault. I went to Parliament, took responsibility for it and promised to fix it, which we did.”
“Today somebody [President Akufo-Addo] claims he inherited a weak economy, which he hasn’t been able to be responsible for, 5 years on. It’s always about Mahama and NDC. If he [Nana Akufo-Addo] can not do the job, he should give way for the NDC to do it for you.”
However, President Akufo-Addo does not think his administration has performed badly at all.
He is of the view that his government has done so well and has not let any opportunity to tout the achievements of his administration slide whiles also Speaking on Sunday, December 19, 2021, during the NPP’s National Delegates Conference in Kumasi, Akufo-Addo insisted that his government has chalked more successes than any other government in the Fourth Republic.
