Mahama needs a bailout in 2016 – Sammy Awuku


National Youth Organizer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Samuel Awuku has launched a passionate appeal to Ghanaians to “bailout” President Mahama by voting him out in the 2016 general elections.

According to him,  the “unpardonable and unprecedented failure” of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), is enough evidence that governance is a daunting task “for the self-acclaimed youthful president”.

Sammy Awuku made the comment whilst discussing government’s decision to seek assistance from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to revive the economy.

Government has officially written to the IMF for assistance despite criticisms by some opponents who have warned of dire consequences should Ghana go on the programme.

However, IMF in a statement signed by its Deputy Managing Director, Min Zhu has confirmed receipt of the letter and a team is expected to be in Ghana in early September to initiate discussions on the programme.

Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Tuesday, Sammy Awuku said Ghanaians must take a cue from government’s decision to seek a bailout.

He indicated that the president needs a bailout in 2016 to save himself from further “humiliation for the gargantuan failure in government”.

“I am of the opinion that the bailout we need as a country now is to bail President Mahama out of the Flagstaff House come 2016” Awuku stated.

The NPP youth leader bemoaned what he describes as the worsening unemployment situation in the country under “this insensitive government”.

“My heart bleeds for the youth of this country, whose worsening condition is expected to get worse in the wake of imminent job cuts as condition for a bailout.

Sammy Awuku said given the current state of the economy, no government comes close to the “spectacular failure” of President Mahama after taking over from the late Atta Mills.

“We accused late President Mills of being slow, but from hindsight we have come to the realization that Mills’ Slow Motion is far better than President Mahama’s No Motion” he scoffed. Story by Ghana/Adomonline.com/Adwoa Gyasiwaa
