The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has accused John Mahama of using state resources to transform only the lives of his friends and families to the detriment of ordinary Ghanaians.

Addressing a press conference on Monday to react to the governing NDC manifesto launch, the NPP’s Policy Adviser for the 2016 campaign, Boakye Agyarko, said: “Even members of his [Mahama’s] own party recognise that the president’s ‘Better Ghana Agenda’ has been for the benefit of only his family and friends.”

He said: “what we have in John Mahama is a President that is so out of touch with the problems of the average Ghanaian that he sees his non-performance in these sectors as success.”

“It is evident that the John Mahama government is not one that can be trusted to put people first. A government that puts corruption first can only pay lip service to putting Ghanaians first,” he said.

According to Boagye Agyarko, the living conditions of Ghanaians have worsened under President Mahama, adding that “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.”

“It cannot be disputed that President John Mahama has made Ghanaians poorer. The prices of everyday items have skyrocketed under John Mahama,” Mr Boakye Agyarko said.

He argued that a president who only thinks about his ‘friends and family’ cannot be trusted and hence should be voted out come December 7.

Meanwhile, the President at the recent NDC manifesto launch in Sunyani argued that his party has been tremendous in the fight against corruption and "will continue to fight corruption wherever we find it."
