A leading member of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Nyaho Nyaho-Tamakloe has described as unfair criticisms of the first 100 days of the Mahama-led administration.
He stated that an objective assessment of President John Mahama within 100 days will be deficient considering the fact that he [Mahama] is still putting his team together.
Tuesday April 16 will mark 100 days of the Mahama-led administration but already opposition parties notably the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the CPP have lampooned the government describing it as the worst in Ghana’s history.
Within 100 days, according to the NPP, the socio-economic conditions in the country have deteriorated which has resulted in majority of Ghanians languishing in abject poverty.
But speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Monday, Dr. Nyaho- Tamakloe said it is too early to assess the performance of President Mahama.
He stated that President Mahama has been able to do all the principal things expected of him as a head of state within his first 100 days and thus the criticisms are “unnecessary”.
“How can you describe somebody who has just taken over power within three months as someone who cannot deliver; I don’t think that is fair”.
Dr.Nyaho-Tamakloe posited that the NPP would have faced similar challenges if it had won the 2012 election.
“If we [NPP] had been in power I wouldn’t even know how our performance would have been. Our government would have been descried the same way others are describing the present government”.
Dr. Nyaho-Tamakloe hoped that Ghanians work together as one people to push the country forward rather than the needless criticisms of the government.
