John Dramani Mahama of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has lamented the ruling New Patriotic Party NPP under Akufo Addo
He expressed regret that the Akufo-Addo administration, despite being in power for five years, is still assigning blame.
On Friday, Mahama spoke at the 40th anniversary commemoration of the 31st December Revolution in Accra, said:
“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] cannot do the job, he should give way for the NDC to do it for you”, he added.
