The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) has said President John Mahama and the NDC can no longer fool Ghanaians with ‘empty’ promises ahead of the elections.

According to the party, Ghanaians have become discerning enough to appreciate what the NDC has achieved in comparison to the NPP’s achievement under the Kufuor administration.

“Ghanaians know the manufacturing sector was doing far better under Mills than now under Mahama. They know the number of manufacturing companies, big and small, that have collapsed over the last four years and the number of people who have lost their livelihoods thereby.

“And, yet they hear this economic mismanagement expert, President Mahama promise to revive the factories created by Kwame Nkrumah. A little reminder, John. Many of these factories were completely buried, broken up and sold off by your previous NDC government in which you served as Minister,” the NPP’s policy advisor, Boakye Agyarko, said at a press conference on Monday to react to the governing NDC manifesto launch.

According to him, “the Ghanaian electorate is aware that growth in the industrial sector has declined sharply under Mahama, from 17% in 2011 to 2.0% in 2015.  And, yet, he claims to be transforming Ghana.”

Boagye Agyarko further accused the John Mahama-led administration of using state resources to transform only the lives of his friends and families to the detriment of ordinary Ghanaians.

He 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 added that “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.

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."
