According to Boakye Agyarko even though President Mahama keeps touting his achievements, “when you speak at random to people around the country, it appears their concerns, problems and anxieties are the same. Unemployment, bad roads, the lack of decent and affordable accommodation and the high cost of living as well as the falling standards in education and health,” he said.
