The Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NDC), Nana Akomea, has asked voters not to believe in the promises of the National Democratic Congress flagbearer, President John Mahama.

He said the president has failed on previous promises he made to Ghanaians in the run-up to the 2012 elections.

Speaking on Joy FM's newsfile Saturday morning, Mr Akomea catalogued some 'failed' promises of the governing NDC.

He said the party promised to upgrade 75 existing secondary schools in 2012 but has some far failed to deliver on that.

"There is a basis for judging what the President tells us which is his record in office and that is what every Ghanaian would do. I am sure when we get to that exercise you would find out that the delivery of President Mahama has been abysmal," he premised his argument.

"He [president Mahama] says he is going to upgrade 125 existing secondary schools. The report shows he hasn't even done half of it.

"And now you tell us that you are going to expand free secondary school to 120, 000 boarding students.

"When you pay a GHC118 out of GHC405... boarding fees are up to GHC735, now you come and tell us that now you are going to pay free fees cost GHC735.

"How are we to take it," he quizzed.

According to Mr Akomea, “The president made simple promises like changing the Commissioner for Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) law to enable it to be able to conduct investigations and prosecute on its own, eight years down the line that has not been achieved."
