Former President John Dramani Mahama has stated that his government was successful in stabilizing the Ghanaian economy through the implementation of many policies and programs prior to Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s assumption of the presidency in 2017.
Mahama claimed that Mr. Akufo-Addo had simply needed to continue with the economy from where he had left it, but he had thrown away all of the advantages.
On Friday, January 27, he stated this while speaking at Chatham House. “When President Akufo-Addo came, we had attained economic stability,” he remarked. It would have been sufficient for them to go from that point onward, but alas, that is not where they have brought us.
Mahama also said that the failure of his government to highlight the nation’s successes was the administration’s worst blunder.
Mahama stated that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) had the presumption that Ghanaians would see the tasks that he had taken on.
We did not use coercion to make others recognize what we had done; rather, we just expected that they would notice it on their own. “We did quite a lot,” he remarked.
In addition to this, he stated that “maybe the next time, if we get the chance, our leaders should make it a point to let the public know what we have done.”
Mahama’s talk was titled “Africa’s Strategic Priorities and Global Role,”.
